I suggest you ...

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.

        This really would be amazing! We currently have to go to Vultr when we need a custom ISO what sucks as we all love DO so much more!

        The problems are that they can't be deployed to DigitalOcean's servers, as well as they would have a hard time booting. ;)

        I voted on a separate idea for support of the Devuan distro. Either that or this should work: we need an OS as dependable as Debian but without that systemd plague.

        I need to load up customer ISOs for ASterisk flavors Freepbx in mind here. It's much easier to load up a prebuilt ISO than have to roll your own - other vendors are doing this, D.O. needs to step up to the plate.

        Thanks leon

        Sorry guys but I don't think this is ever going to happen. They actually completed the code for it but clearly have no desire to release it [0]. It's obvious that DO doesn't want to allow this for business reasons, as they have never replied to this issue which has now been open for quite some time.

        I would suggest Vultr or another provider that allows you to host custom ISOs, there are now many.

        I'd buy a 300GB instance today if I was able to install from my own image....

        Would be interested in using Digital Ocean if this feature was available. Iooking for an environment to deploy a number of custom debian based unified communication systems

        I would like to abstract our network topology with a software firewall that supports OpenFlow or the like

        being able to add an iso would be prudent. I would like to be able to use the freepbx official release which is a centos linux release.
