                • East-Central Europe Datacenter in Budapest (Hungary)

                  East-Central Europe is a fast growing part of Europe. Budapest is the geographical center of this area and has good network infrastructure. So it is an excellent location to serve from.

                  • offer floating IPs as VIPs, without anchors

                    NATing through an 'anchor IP' interferes with some protocols, and especially UDP-based protocols. It also makes configuration odd; instead of telling the service that -- when and if it receives connections and packets -- they'll come on a certain public IP, I need to tell it both its public IP and its 'anchor' IP.

                    • Droplets default mount options

                      You should create Droplets / ( root ) partition with mount options "rw,noatime,nodiratime,defaults" instead of "rw,defaults" for less SSD writes. As I know noatime and nodiratime options disables writes to disk in every read from disk.

                      • 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!!

                        • Development Droplets for testing purposes

                          I would like to be able to set up and test a server to make sure that everything works before I put it in production without the need to pay anything and have to worry to clone and remove the Droplet if I didn’t have time to finish what I wanted to do.

                          It could be something like:

                          Development Droplet that can only be accessed by the team in the DO account and after “X” minutes of not being used it will be turned off without losing any of the changes we did. Then, when we try to access it…

                            • Let me use the DO agent on an external host

                              Alright, here's the rub:

                              I have a bunch of stuff on DO (love it!), and also need to monitor something hosted elsewhere that is part of my app stack. It's external due to RAM, disk, and CPU requirements (dedicated hardware).

                              I would like to add this external box to the list of machines in the DO console, and see a few basic metrics there.

                              You have the agent, the cloud console, the alerting feature - all the building blocks are already there.

                              It shouldn't be too difficult to adapt the DO agent as the box in question is Ubuntu (old,…

                              • Allow creating multiple block storage devices at a time

                                In the Web UI, add a feature which allows us to create multiple block storage devices (like we create multiple droplets)
                                It will be helpful for people testing various filesystems and volume management. Personally, it will help me a tonne while setting up ZFS arrays for my demos and what not.

                                • I would love a "cloud functions" service on DO

                                  Amazon and Google have this. I've used both services and they're good, but a bit complex to setup, use and a bit expensive for an indie developer. I bet DO could design, build and deploy a really well thought out and affordable cloud functions service.

                                  • Display SMTP block in account settings

                                    Certain DO accounts have outbound SMTP ports blocked, but there is no indication to the account holder if this is being done or not.

                                    In order to help users troubleshoot outbound SMTP issues, a clear notification should be displayed inside the account settings or networking pages, as well as document any other blocked ports.

                                    • Support expected wait time or queue position

                                      Having submitted an issue it would be reassuring to have an expected wait time or queue position attached to the issue.

                                      In my experience support response time can vary from 20 minutes to several hours, at least if one can see how long approximately it will be before a reponse, it is possible to get on with other work rather than waiting for a response that may take several hours.

                                      Obviously live chat would be preferable but something like this would probably be easier to implement for the time being and in my opinion a better user experience.

                                      • Create Docker PaaS offering

                                        Currently I am looking to containerise our App Deployment. A big part of this is the moving away from having the box that runs the app being the server that runs it. When you no longer rely on the VM running it, it's just a nuance to keep the box up to date and update packages like Docker.

                                        Wouldn't it be awesome if you had PaaS offerings like Azure or AWS!
