  1. Droplets default mount options

    You should create Droplets / ( root ) partition with mount options "rw,noatime,nodiratime,defaults" instead of "rw,defaults" for less SSD writes. As I know noatime and nodiratime options disables writes to disk in every read from disk.

      • Development Droplets for testing purposes

        I would like to be able to set up and test a server to make sure that everything works before I put it in production without the need to pay anything and have to worry to clone and remove the Droplet if I didn’t have time to finish what I wanted to do.

        It could be something like:

        Development Droplet that can only be accessed by the team in the DO account and after “X” minutes of not being used it will be turned off without losing any of the changes we did. Then, when we try to access it…

          • Let me use the DO agent on an external host

            Alright, here's the rub:

            I have a bunch of stuff on DO (love it!), and also need to monitor something hosted elsewhere that is part of my app stack. It's external due to RAM, disk, and CPU requirements (dedicated hardware).

            I would like to add this external box to the list of machines in the DO console, and see a few basic metrics there.

            You have the agent, the cloud console, the alerting feature - all the building blocks are already there.

            It shouldn't be too difficult to adapt the DO agent as the box in question is Ubuntu (old,…

              • Allow creating multiple block storage devices at a time

                In the Web UI, add a feature which allows us to create multiple block storage devices (like we create multiple droplets)
                It will be helpful for people testing various filesystems and volume management. Personally, it will help me a tonne while setting up ZFS arrays for my demos and what not.

                • I would love a "cloud functions" service on DO

                  Amazon and Google have this. I've used both services and they're good, but a bit complex to setup, use and a bit expensive for an indie developer. I bet DO could design, build and deploy a really well thought out and affordable cloud functions service.

                  • Display SMTP block in account settings

                    Certain DO accounts have outbound SMTP ports blocked, but there is no indication to the account holder if this is being done or not.

                    In order to help users troubleshoot outbound SMTP issues, a clear notification should be displayed inside the account settings or networking pages, as well as document any other blocked ports.

                    • Create Docker PaaS offering

                      Currently I am looking to containerise our App Deployment. A big part of this is the moving away from having the box that runs the app being the server that runs it. When you no longer rely on the VM running it, it's just a nuance to keep the box up to date and update packages like Docker.

                      Wouldn't it be awesome if you had PaaS offerings like Azure or AWS!

                      • Data Centre Tours

                        Being a loyal customer of DigitalOcean's fantastic services for 3 years, I think it would be fantastic to have tours of data centres available!

                        While I currently reside halfway around the world from SFO, I'd definitely would pay a visit to the data centre/s (and pay for it) - and see where exactly my production servers reside.

                          I understand that currently there isn't an option to choose default OS for all future droplets per account and one has to manually change from Ubuntu to something else each time. Will you please add an option to choose default so? thx!

                              • Warn Droplet admins that SMTP will not work over IPv6

                                According to https://digitalocean.uservoice.com/forums/136585-digitalocean/suggestions/7190053-allow-smtp-over-ipv6

                                SMTP is disallowed over IPv6 on DO. AFAICT (I may not have this 100% correct), if someone sends out spam email from someone hosted on DigitalOcean, under IPv6, the whole range from emails of all DigitalOcean users are blocked. Whereas under blocking an IP range from a similar user in IPv4, it would not be locked. Since email providers would (or possibly have) block the range of IPv6 IPs associated with DigitalOcean, all SMTP traffic from DigitalOcean is blocked when IPv6 is enabled on a droplet.

                                However, SMTP is a common protocol used by servers whose focus…

                                      Add a button in the web interface that automatically writes my own public ip in the field, like aws does http://imgur.com/a/7Lhqy

                                      • Fix the RAM monitoring to exclude cached/buffered memory

                                        Right now the RAM monitoring service does not work correctly, it includes cached/buffered memory in "used RAM" so we're always above 90% usage, but the real usage is much lower.

                                        • Remove hacking group 165.227.125.181

                                          someone you host is using your services to take control of internet connections and presumably stealing information. There is already one post about this. I hope you will take this seriously and boot the bad actor.
