  1. GEO Replication for Spaces

    We would like to ability to replicate a space / bucket between regions. I see two ways this could be implemented.

    1. Since a Space name is globally unique. You could have an option to host that space in xxxx locations and have data automatically replicate to each region.

    2. Allow the user to choose two or more spaces in any region to create a replication rule.

    I think there should also be two modes, master/slave and master/master. Replication should be automatic and fast.

    In master/slave all changes created on one space / region would replicate to the other region…

      • Add more alert integrations.

        Add more options when it comes to alerts integration.

        Currently you got email and slack, but adding support for other systems such as Telegram and Discord would be nice! :)

        • Add possibility for Private Floating IP

          Digital Ocean currently supports public facing Floating IP's. This is great, and I use that on the haproxy part of my infrastructure that load balances my application servers.

          This however, is not suitable for backend services like a database cluster that is only going to be reachable from the Private IP of the application servers.

          Adding option (public or private) when creating a Floating IP could help a lot of Digital Ocean users, and simplify the setup of highly available platforms etc.

          • Easy colocation

            Product that would allow for easy colocation setup for global websites. For example I would like to open a droplet and select different locations (EU, USA, ASIA). I would like to setup droplet only once and just select at which locations the same copy would exist in sync. Load balancer should be set to route the users to the closest location automatically.

              • Allow us to remove ourselves from Teams

                There is currently no way to remove yourself from a team if the team's account owner had their account suspended. Users should be able to remove themselves from a team no matter what.

                • Spaces API: Support presigned upload urls like those in S3

                  From S3 docs:

                  "A pre-signed URL gives you access to the object identified in the URL, provided that the creator of the pre-signed URL has permissions to access that object. That is, if you receive a pre-signed URL to upload an object, you can upload the object only if the creator of the pre-signed URL has the necessary permissions to upload that object."

                    • Show up-to-date Droplet OS/version info in Droplet dashboard

                      Hi,

                      it would be great if the OS information for each droplet shown on the droplet dashboard would reflect the OS/version currently used instead of what it was at creation time.

                      I've spoken to a support tech before and the reasoning at the time was that DO has no insight into the droplet after it has been created. Fair enough.

                      However now that the DO agent is available to get up to date monitoring information from the droplet.

                      Is the OS/version info something that could also be kept up to date by the agent? If so I'd love to see…

                      • VAT excemption based on company's registered address

                        VAT exemption should based on the company's registered address, not that of the bank that issues a debit/credit card or the card holder's address.

                        A company registered outside the EU may have bank accounts in many different countries and maintain debit/credit cards for company CEOs, CFOs who may or may not reside in the EU. Charging VAT according to the card holder's place of residence or the bank's address is against regulations.

                        VAT should only be charged if the company's registered address is in the EU.

                        • Back-ups that cannot be deleted, until they expire (according to duration date) to protect from hackers

                          I would like to be able to define on a server level, that back-ups cannot be deleted, until they expire (according to duration date).
                          Such a definition will defend me from hackers deleting my web site... I would like backups to be set to work weekly with incremental backups daily, and for them not to be available for deleting for a certain pre-defined time period.
                          The way backups are currently designed allows to delete them, so I cannot enjoy the real value of backups.

                          • Allow SSL/Let's Encrypt Integration for Custom Domain of Digital Ocean Spaces

                            Right now Digital Ocean Spaces support custom URL but this only works with http not http(s).

                            Custom URL files of Digital Ocean Spaces cannot be access via SSL.

                            So please add SSL/Let's Encrypt Integration for Custom Domain of Digital Ocean Spaces.

                            Most of the sites are now using SSL so serving files with custom domain/own domain with SSL is obvious.

                            • More useful error messages in Droplet Creation API

                              When creating a server-stack recently, I (accidentally) kept passing the wrong payload structure to the API, but, i just kept getting 500's from DO's API with the error message:

                              #1
                              {"name":"[SERVER-PREFIX-core","region":"lon1","size":"1gb","image":"ubuntu-16-04-x64","backups":"false","ipv6":"false","private_networking":"true","monitoring":"true","user_data":"","tags":["[SERVER-PREFIX]","[SERVER-PREFIX]-core-server","monitor"]}

                              #2
                              {"name":"[SERVER-PREFIX-db1","region":"lon1","size":{"command":"server:stack-database","clientname":"abott","databaseserver-size":"2gb"},"image":"centos-7-x64","backups":"false","ipv6":"false","private_networking":"true","monitoring":"true","tags":["[SERVER-PREFIX]","[SERVER-PREFIX]-db","monitor"]}

                              In #2 payload, the size is an object, not a string, but the API kept returning:

                              string(88) "{"id": "internal_server_error", "message": "Server was unable to give you a response." }"

                              Not very useful.

                                I currently monitor my server with a grafana stack of statsite (a statsd replacement), graphite and grafana. I would love to be able to point the DO-agent to my statsite server to have all my stats in the same place.

                                    • Spaces: possibility to generate keys that can upload but not delete

                                      I want to use Spaces use to backup from within my boxes. However: I need settings so I can generate a key so from the box it's possible to save files to the space, but not delete them.

                                      I want to avoid that a hacker gains access to a box, and is able to delete all backups from there. Otherwise Spaces wouldn't be a safe option for me to use as backup.
