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.

        Being able to install Kali or Tails would be nice. I know Tails is more ideal as a bootable usb but you can always redo the droplet

        I love Gento/Funtoo and would like use it in this host.

        I have a *sighs* microsoft image I would like to upload.... fully licensed mind you but, totally cant leave IAD (Team Red) until i can move that .NET service (which cannot run in mono) app over.

      • HakimHakim commented  · 

        I really need to see if Kali Linux image can be uploaded.

        Being able to create a server from a VM in addition to ISO would be fantastic. Some tools are primarily distributed in a VM instead of ISO.

        Would LOVE to see this. This is a great idea and would make digital ocean my replacement for environment testing with applications and scripts.

        upload own vm images at least, so we don't have to rebuild

        "Releasing it in the future."

        The future is here, it's knocking angrily on the door and wondering where the hojek its feature is.

        So it's pretty crappy there haven't been any responses here... Amazon EC2 is expensive... but at least they provide good customer support.

        +1 If I can't have more flexibility to use a custom distribution, I'm going to have to look at other hosting options. I have used ubuntu at work, but my heart belongs to slackware, and I definitely would like to run it on my DO box.

        Come on digital ocean, you do such a great job on so many fronts; this would be an amazing addition :)

      • pixlinepixline commented  · 

        Either allow for custom images or broaden the actual choice of distros, somewhat limited.
        We really need to have some DO options like freebsd/pfSense or Slackware Linux at least.

        This is a must have for our business to switch to Digital Ocean.
