    • Add proper droplet grouping

      I am well aware of the Tag system that is currently up (and it's really nice..), but I'd like it to be more detailed to prevent confusion.

      I'm currently running/planning out a 12 Droplet HA Web cluster, but I see myself down the line running way more, both for email clustering, game hosting, etcetera..

      Here is a small example that I quickly made in Paint:

      • Select/Add other email address for Monitoring Policies

        Currently, when you create new policy, you can only select your own email address or Connect to Slack.

        Since some or many people will have a team which they have created droplets, it would be good to include a field to add new email address or select the team email address to send the alert to, instead of only allowing the user to only choose their own email address.

        I am not sure if this feature is already planned. But i hope this can be added in. Thank you.

        • Add webhooks to monitoring

          It would be great if the new monitoring service also had webhooks. This would make it significantly easier for our orchestration service to respond to events and take action.

          • 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.

            • Show the Floating IP of a droplet on the Droplets page

              It would be helpful to show the Floating IP on the Droplets page if it is attached to a droplet.

                Search domains in networking

                There is a search field to locate droplets.
                However, the number of domains is greatly increased. I miss a search field to locate domains in networking.
                The domains can be listed by droplet filter condition, and a search boxbox

                    Would like to have it list the Public and Private droplet IP on the droplet page under DigitalOcean's cloud control panel.

                    • Show private IP in Droplet overview

                      Make an eventual private IP easily available from the droplet overview.
                      Maybe by having a mouse-over text (like the platform icon) on the public IP adddress.

                      • Publish your capacity issues

                        We were unpleasantly surprised by a capacity issue in Amsterdam yesterday, which is still ongoing. You can't create any new instances in this zone.

                        In our business model, it is essential that we can continue to scale upwards on demand. I belive that's one of the main reasons for anybody to choose a cloud provider over handling your own servers.

                        I contacted support and got the following answer: "Unfortunately we do not currently have an ETA on the additional capacity in Amsterdam. Please check back in a few days."

                        I can live with this right now, because we're still in…

                          Thanks for bringing up this issue and apologies on the delayed response. There have been a large number of changes that we have implemented and are continuing to implement to resolve this matter permanently.

                          First and foremost since this was first brought up in the close of 2013 we have raised a large series A round led by Andressen Horowitz. The primary purpose for this fund-raise was to better finance the company to ensure that we could purchase equipment as necessary and continue to scale.

                          Since that round close we have many times improved our procurement and provisioning process to better meet the demands of our customers.

                          There are many incremental steps that we have taken to ensure capacity in all regions including those that are outside of the US.

                          The next steps that we have taken is to provide better international coverage so that customers can select facilities that…

                          It would be very useful if the table at https://cloud.digitalocean.com/droplets could also show the private IP address for droplets that have private networking enabled. It could for instance be shown in gray color below the public IP address.

                            When destroy a droplet, system should ask to enter password to confirm before delete it for more safety. Since this is the most important decision.

                                  I’m a Product Manager at DigitalOcean and I’m happy to say that we’ve started working on the ability to upload custom images and ISOs. When we are closer to a launch date, I’ll be sure to update the thread.

                                    We’ve started working on a rather large improvement to the help system inside of the control panel.

                                    We’ll be launching it in the next 1-2 months and we hope that it will make it much easier to surface relevant information quickly.

                                    Thanks,
                                    Moisey

                                    I would recommend that your Droplet Panel Information Display have a status column showing if backups are active on the drop.
