I suggest you ...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

  1. DigitalOcean team is awesome!

    I really admire what you guys have done!
    Your professional are over my expectations for this much of cost.

    I hope you guy could keep it up, and there are more people like me to do business with you.

    Just one suggestion, some guys like me, he want to create a cluster with 10 boxes to try out postgresXL and greenplump. Since they require high connectivity such as 1Gb-10Gb LAN. I have failed to deploy on your system. I really appreciate if you guy show me how to set them up successfully without worrying that your system is not relevant…

    • Add TTL to V2 API for DNS

      Specifying a TTL is currently not supported in V2 API but is supported by the V1 API used by your control panel.

      The ability to specify a custom TTL was already accepted and completed for the control panel. This is a crucial part of any DNS management when you're using it for more than simple resolution for server names.

      This should be supported in your V2 API.

      • Add DNS transfer between accounts

        When a team creation option was created, my information was transferred to the team, now I want to delete this team, but it does not have a network transfer option (DNS Domains)

        • Notify on low free space

          When free space (at either an instance or SSD storage) becomes less than a user-specified value, the user should be notified by email that storage is low.

          • Add btrfs on root option for all Linux Droplets

            btrfs is quickly becoming the defacto Linux file system and all major OSes include support for it (even DO's Droplets that don't allow using btrfs on root include the tools): CentOS, Ubuntu and CoreOS to name a few...

            My main draw to BTRFS is the improved data integrity and bitrot protection provided by its checksums of data and metadata. Additional features of use in DO's environment are snapshots and pooling (among others).

            I would also argue that btrfs on Linux is a needed option just as ZFS on FreeBSD is--in DO, one can choose UFS- or ZFS-based FreeBSD Droplets.

            Links…

            • Allow user to not receive root password by email when droplet is created with user_data

              Allow user to not receive root password by email when droplet is created with user_data.

              Password are not sent via email when specifying a ssh key, why not make it possible when user data is provided? Of course, not all script provided configure root access so it could be an option.

              I am using user data to create my droplet and getting this wrong root password by email is not very interesting.

              • PROXY Protocol in Load Balancer

                When using a TCP load balancer it would be still useful to know the the IP address the original address came from.

                HAProxy has a PROXY protocol which is sent to the downstream server with IP information when a new client connects before sending proxying any data.

                • VMs behind a Load Balancer should be on different physical machines.

                  It would be good that we can manage the physical machine where a NEW vm that is added to the LB starts.
                  If we can control that then we can make sure the LB is doing failover as well as balancing.

                      • Matching $5 Linode specs

                        Hello I just want to use the $5 instance, but recently Linode offers it with 1GB ram, I almost alwasy find myself running out of RAM when I ssh into DigitalOcean.

                        Would you be willing to upgrade my machine with same spec as Linode for $5 per month?

                        • Allow prepay with credit card

                          Allow prepay with credit card, send automated verification code per transaction as security check, Paypal just do this way, no much security as one would imagine.

                          • Support HTTP/2 on load balancers

                            Digital Ocean's new load balancers only support HTTP 1.1. The text protocol and lack of multiplexing in HTTP 1.1 means it's MUCH slower than HTTP/2.

                            One of the pages on our site loads in 600ms on nginx running HTTP/2, and 1.8s on HTTP 1.1. We'd love to be able to use DO Load Balancrs but the slowdown isn't worth it.

                              • allow Floating IPs to point to load balancers

                                This would allow me to scale an app seamlessly in real time, instead of needing to carefully time it against DNS cache latency.

                                After playing around with the new Load Balancers for a bit, It seems like an obvious extension. By the way, I'm really pleased with the feature. It seems very polished.

                                • Allow me to select the hard disk as a boot device

                                  There's currently no way to select THE HARD DISK as the boot device. Furthermore, there's no way to select the recovery ISO as the boot device. If you don't use the DigitalOcean shipped kernel, the default response for tech support is to boot a grubloader kernel. We don't use grub, we use extlinux.

                                      • Make service notifications available via the api

                                        Right now the only way to receive service notifications is via the user notification panel. would it be possible to include getting notifications via the api? This way anyone using this always has notifications available in the event of an emergency on your side that we are unaware of. Thanks!

                                        • Create a 1-click install for Ubuntu 16.04 HA setup

                                          In additional to the "New tutorial for Ubuntu 16.04 HA setup" suggestion (https://digitalocean.uservoice.com/forums/136585-digitalocean/suggestions/17999164-new-tutorial-for-ubuntu-16-04-ha-setup), this suggestion provides DO users with a new 1-click install option: Paired Ubuntu 16.04 servers pre-configured for high availability.

                                          Having access to a pre-configured, pair (at least) of Ubuntu 16.04 servers for high-availability would save an amazing amount of time.
