    • Add CloudSQL service

      Similar to the service found on Google Cloud, provide a managed CloudSQL service to support things like PostgreSQL & MySQL. They would be priced by total storage size available, and have high availability configuration options just like AWS/GCP.

        • Never charge for bandwidth

          It seems like you've been talking about charging for bandwidth for a long time but haven't actually done so. Some people (like me) have built high-bandwidth applications on thin margins that could be decimated by bandwidth costs. That's probably my fault, of course, but you not charging for bandwidth is a massive advantage you have over every other competitor in the field. Today, I couldn't imagine hosting my business anywhere else. I absolutely love DO and am planning many more droplets in the coming months. Please don't change a thing!!

            • More powerful load balancers

              You should improve your load balancer to support higher session rates (especially with SSL). We would be happy to pay extra money (e.g. $40, $80, $160, etc.) to have load balancers with high performance.

              Currently this is a huge problem for us: we cannot scale.

              At the moment your load balancers are a bottleneck and cannot handle more than 1,000 requests / s (without keep alive and with SSL enabled).

              The same limit of 1,000 requests / s also applies to custom installations of HAProxy on DO... probably your hardware is not optimized for SSL and scaling the droplet /…

                Thanks for your feedback! We are aware of some limitations and constraints on our current offering.

                We are currently investigating and planning to implement better scalability and performance for our Load Balancer service in the coming months.

              • Domains under digitalocean

                It would be great if we could simply create subdomains under a generic domain, something like: myfancyapp.digitalocean.io It could simplify creating POC.

                • PayPal Billing Agreement (pre-approved payment) for auto payment.

                  Hello many hosting service like Vultr (e.g. Uber) setup PayPal billing agreements, that let's merchant autometically charge customer's PayPal. This way, we can avoid monthly manual payment (which is tedious)

                  • Don't destroy backups when destroying Droplet

                    It would be great if the backups were not automatically destroyed when a droplet is destroyed.
                    In case a droplet is destroyed accidentally there is nothing left that was saved automatically right now.
                    Only manual snapshots.

                      I want to automatically resize and generate thumbnails for images when they are uploaded into a space. It would be great to be able to trigger an http call when a new file is added to a bucket.

                          • Add a way to easy search and filter different kinds (A,AAAA, CNAME etc.) from the dns records.

                            When multiple records kinds of DNS records are there, it's not easy to figure out and modify the right record. It will be great to filter by kind of record (A, AAAA, etc.). A search will be a great add-on to filter.

                                  • Autoscale using saved images when behind a load balancer

                                    You already have alerts and images (snapshots/backups), now all you have to do, is setup some config that when XYZ alert goes off (80% CPU) auto spin up a new droplet (size determined by config) and attach that to the load balancer. This Droplet would start accepting traffic once the health check passes.

                                    As a phase 2, when certain alerts get hit (cpu below 20% for 60 minutes), then de-scale by killing off the youngest droplet.

                                    It seems like all the pieces of the puzzle are there, and it appears that nobody has asked for this specifically like this before…

                                      • Add possibility for Private Floating IP

                                        Digital Ocean currently supports public facing Floating IP's. This is great, and I use that on the haproxy part of my infrastructure that load balances my application servers.

                                        This however, is not suitable for backend services like a database cluster that is only going to be reachable from the Private IP of the application servers.

                                        Adding option (public or private) when creating a Floating IP could help a lot of Digital Ocean users, and simplify the setup of highly available platforms etc.

                                        • Paid support

                                          There's a lot of us that do just fine maintaining our own servers but there comes a time where we need immediate assistance and are more than willing to pay a premium for it.

                                          Many providers already offer this on either a monthly agreement or in a pre-paid credit basis.

                                          Finding help at 3AM when a server refuses to boot in anything but recovery mode is relatively impossible.
