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.

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

        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.

        Would love to be able to upload existing VMX. Would be willing to bend the CEO's ear to move the whole farm to your cloud because I like the way everything else works and of course the price would sell itself.

        This would make my life a lot easier. In order to get a custom OS installed, I have to install Debian then pivot_root out of it so I can install Gentoo or whatever custom OS i choose to use. Put in a disclaimer somewhere that says your tech support cannot offer guidance on custom ISOs, because there *are* consumers out there who are a little more knowledgeable than a majority of your technicians. Or, at least make it so I can change the OS label on the Droplets view ... :-)

        I think could add to upload not only customized ISO, but ready images in OVA / OVF format . This might be interesting for some customized solutions where is not possible to simple install from a fresh installation ....
