I suggest you ...

Allow Custom Images

Allow users to upload ISO's of Linux installations they would like to use. For instance, I was hoping to install Slackware 14; if users could upload their own ISOs you wouldn't have to keep adding distros as they wanted them.

        Heya - I saw back in 2012 there was mention of this feature being in beta. Was this worked on any further, by any chance? Installing from an ISO is the *only* thing missing from DO to meet my needs.

        Signed up for an account with DO, found it didn't have this feature, and immediately moved to Vultr with higher spec hardware at a lower price. I would move back to DO (even at the higher prices) if this was implemented because I like their DC locations better.

        Pls i relly need it

        This is a backup vote for the event when OpenBSD droplet is not accepted.
        With Custom Images, OpenBSD could be deployable.
        pf of OpenBSD is good for firewall, traffic-shaping, load-balancing, VPN, encryption, etc.
        Custom Image will be less convenient than droplet but it is acceptable.
        Vultur also does not give OpenBSD image but allow custome install.

        It will Help us to import Image to start a new Droplet with existing data and code structure, As sometimes we dont want to make changes to server which results in big cost for company.

        I would love to play around with slackware 14 on a digitalocean droplet. This would be a very nice feature.

      • AlexAlex commented  · 

        Please i really need this feature

        What is going on with this?

      • Pierre DabrunstPierre Dabrunst commented  · 

        I want to see the function that I can upload my own OS. I am making my own OS and I would like to install it on my doplet. I would like to see that I can install my own custom OS by uploading it to my ISO files.

      • Jonathan ByersJonathan Byers commented  · 

        Vultr.com has custom ISO and Windows capabilities. This lets me run my custom windows application along side my Linux clusters and let's me use custom ISOs like Zen Load balancer.

        i needed 6.5 centos and its not there ...very upsetting.

      • TyrelTyrel commented  · 

        Please, please, this would be amazing! Also not just ISO's purhapse more importantly, I would really like to upload vms from vmware or virtual box.

      • Anonymous commented  · 

        This idea is oder then three years. I think it is not in the roadmap of DO

      • lechindianerlechindianer commented  · 

        With custom ISOs I would be able to install OpenBSD on a DigitalOcean server... That would be great!
        I'll wait for the announcement that DO offers OpenBSD / ISO upload on bsdnow.tv :)

        This really needs to be done to keep D.O. competitive with other services. Right now they are lagging a bit behind others as I see many many services like them with this option as a default. I am looking for a place to upload some Slackware templates and unfortunately it will not work here. I have wasted 10 bucks and I am not really happy now. I will have to go to a competitor now to get what I need.Based on this fact alone I will ot be recommending D.O. as a serious place for business to my friends or customers.
