DigitalOcean

Your feedback drives our design process. Your votes count! Let us know what you want to see from the DigitalOcean cloud.

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".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. 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.

    • Download snapshot and/or backup

      It would be great if we could download a snapshot. I would use snapshot to replicate development environment on my local computer, I believe many others will do the same.

      Thanks

      • I know they cost a fortune, but I would love an Australian server!

        Because most of the traffic going to my server would be Australia I would love it if you added one, I wouldn't mind paying extra for it either!

          Awesome news, we’ve hired our first two engineers from Australia, one is our new Senior Network Engineer and another is a Software engineer.

          After we launched Singapore we spent two months analyzing the usage and also looking into how the new region improved latency for customers around that geography.

          Since then we’ve been looking at the next geographies to open and Australia definitely came up on that list. Given that the logistics there, at least initially, seem to be less complicated than other regions we are beginning to investigate Australia as a new region for DigitalOcean.

          This process usually takes a couple of months as we review datacenter location choices, internet connectivity providers, and the pricing that these vendors will provide so that we can ensure we can still operate out of this new region with the same price point that we have across the cloud today.

          We’ll have more…

          • Brazilian DataCenter

            What is the possibility of creating data centers in Brazil or in Latin America? The latency is high here!

            But would also like to congratulate you for the quality and support!

            • Bitcoin Payment Method

              Bitcoin is a Peer to Peer digital currency with worldwide implications. Its value is changing rapidly just like oil did during its early days of adoption.

              That aside, it is a new technology and is beginning to be widely used. One of the largest internet company's in China started accepting them, WordPress accepts them and many more are starting to accept them every day.

              I don't want to see Digital Ocean lose out on this technology.

              I suggest you take a good hard look in the adoption of this new payment system.

              • Reserve IP Addresses / Make sure we can keep an IP if we recreate a droplet.

                When destroying a droplet there's a 99% chance that you will get your IP back. If someone creates a droplet while destroying/creating a new one and steals your IP, it's a pain, even if the chances are <1%.

                This 1% is too much for some. An IP is an important number, your server might not be able to send emails if the last IP's user was sending spam through it.

                Software licenses are also tied to IP sometimes.

                When I want to rebuild a server (or resize: disk size) I want to make sure that I get my IP back.

                    • S3 / Object Storage alternative

                      As title says - it would be great if you would offer Amazon S3 storage alternative in same datacenters where we are hosting main sites.

                      • Keep Arch Linux on DigitalOcean

                        Hi all,

                        I really love Arch Linux so much, but DO is trying to move that out. I hope that you guys can try to vote for the fantastic distro to keep it on DO.

                        The following is the letter that I just wrote to the support ticket.
                        ----

                        I'm very surprised about the maintainability of Arch Linux. Personally, I'm a heavy user of Arch, I do love the distro. Arch Linux is a contemporary minimalist Linux distribution. It provides a very clean, lightweight distribution of the Linux operating system.

                        While I was trying to launch another Arch server on…

                            One thing i love about Linode and Rackspace is that i can always quickly check my server stats from my mobile phone. I would love to have an app that shows me (in descending order of importance):

                            * List of Droplets with all meta info (name, image, size, IP address, Running or not ...)
                            * Buttons for:
                            * Reboot
                            * Resize
                            * Snapshot
                            * Backup
                            * Create from scratch/ from image
                            * Bandwidth usage for the current month
                            * Charges for current month / account balance
                            * Digital Ocean stats (is everything in the network ok?)

                              • Deploy to physically separated hardware

                                If you have MySQL with master-slave setup and both are on the same physical host, you're totally screwed when there is a hardware failure - both master and slave are dead and there's no point in even doing replication.

                                Or, if you have 2 Rails application servers and they are on the same host, it's an SPOF.

                                In other words, whenever you have multiple droplets in a project, you need to confirm if any combination of droplets are on the same host or not.

                                Right now, we have to write a support ticket to confirm if those droplets aren't on…

                                  Hey everyone,

                                  You can now see which, if any, of your droplets are running on the same hardware by hitting the API. The endpoints are:

                                  /v2/droplets/:id/neighbors
                                  /v2/reports/droplet_neighbors

                                  You can read more about how to leverage this new feature in the API changelog: https://developers.digitalocean.com/changelog/

                                  Thanks again for helping us make DO better!

                                  • Datacenter in Japan.

                                    Singapore location is great and works well. But for HA applications it would be nice to have another Asia datacenter...

                                      • Update your prices

                                        Hello,

                                        DigitalOcean is good, really good, but there is a little problem. Other VPS Services have much more Storage or even more CPU's for the same price e.g.:

                                        DO: 8GB RAM 4Core 80GB SSD 5TB Trans. 80$
                                        Linode: 8GB RAM 6Core 192GB SSD 8TB Trans. 80$
                                        Vultr: 8GB RAM 4Cote 150GB SSD 5TB Trans. 80$

                                        • More powerfull cpu

                                          In my case is more significant the power of a single CPU core than the total number of CPU. (In my current dedicated server I have disabled the hipertheading)

                                          I'm testing you're server in order to transfer a performance critical application I have in a dedicated server. My current bottle neck is on disk io so I thought that your ssd based service will solve my performance issues but:

                                          Although the SSD increases the respond time of the first run of a query, all subsequent queries are CPU bounded and are significant slower than my current non-SSD dedicated server.
