Check out what we've been working on

Here’s What’s New
We’ve been busy building better ways to help you deploy and manage your Droplets at scale. We’re excited to share some recent improvements you might have missed!


UI Improvements
“Multiple Droplet Create” feature
We spend a lot of time trying to understand how users interact with our control panel and we’ve noticed that spinning up multiple Droplets can be a tedious task. So we’ve made it easier for you to scale your infrastructure by launching up to 10 Droplets in just a few clicks (or a simple API call).
Control Panel Improvements
Our product design team has been shipping iterative improvements to the control panel. Recent updates include:
  • Improved notifications
  • Enable backups for active Droplets
  • More intuitive graphs
  • New window for the web console
If you haven’t seen it in a while, check out the updates to your control panel.


Droplet tagging via the API
Another problem we’ve been tackling is the management of large numbers of Droplets. A first step is extending our API to support Droplet tagging. Tagging, combined with configuration management tools like Chef, Puppet, Salt, and Ansible, can offer a powerful mechanism for inventorying and automating your systems.

New Command Line Interface (CLI)
As developers ourselves, we spend a lot of time on the command line. That’s why we’ve introduced doctl, a command line interface for managing all of your DigitalOcean resources. It is completely open source and available on GitHub. We’re excited to be able to share this with our community and look forward to collaborating on building a tool we hope you’ll love.

Block storage
We’ve been working on a block storage service that allows users to attach expandable storage to your Droplet. It will be available to all this summer, but you can request beta access now.
New datacenter

Our first datacenter in India — BLR1 — is coming soon to Bangalore.

We’ve updated our Terms of Service policy — what you need to know

We’ve updated our terms of service to reflect our credit expiration policy and want to provide clarity around what types of credit will expire, and when. Here’s what you need to know:

  1. Promotional credit will expire 12 months after it has been issued or redeemed. This includes referral sign-up credit, promotion codes you’ve entered, or credit issued by DigitalOcean staff.
  2. Referral and SLA credit will now expire after 12 months of account inactivity, and no sooner than May 2017. This includes credits earned from referring customers to DigitalOcean and SLA credits.

If you're interested in reviewing a detailed explanation of the changes, be sure to read our terms of service changelog or our blog post.

AMS DNS Connectivity

Thu Mar 17 15:30:29 2016
Our networking team is still investigating issues with Google DNS in our AMS regions. During this time we recommend changing your droplet to another DNS provider, such as OpenDNS. If you need assistance with this, feel free to open a support ticket. We will provide an update as soon as one is available.

31 Days, 4 Pull Requests, 1000s of Stories: Looking Back at Hacktoberfest



When we completed our first Hacktoberfest in 2014, we had 768 participants, and happily sent out T-shirts across the globe. We were eager to see what 2015 would bring, but we could never have expected the huge response we received this year!

This year, we partnered with GitHub to lay down the challenge: submit four pull requests on GitHub to an open source project, and we’ll send you a free limited edition T-shirt.

As Hacktoberfest wound down and the numbers and stories began trickling — and then pouring — in, we were overwhelmed by the results that we saw. 14,419 people signed up. 5,708 people created four pull requests. And 1,060 went above and beyond, submitting over 10 each in the month of October.

We were blown away by the stories people shared about their Hacktoberfest experience. Here are just some of our favorite ones from around the world:

Start Architecting Your Applications for High Availability with Floating IPs



We're excited to launch Floating IPs, a way to architect highly-available systems or applications on DigitalOcean!

Floating IPs help prevent single points of failure by allowing you to move one IP address between different Droplets in the same datacenter. This makes it possible to set up standby Droplets, ready to receive your production traffic at a moment’s notice.

Discover how to set up redundant load balancers that automatically failover with the help of this configuration tutorial. Additionally, Floating IPs can be used for application upgrades. Spin up a new Droplet, run the upgrades on the new Droplet, and switch the flow of traffic to the new Droplet.

Learn more about what Floating IPs are and how to use them on DigitalOcean with this tutorial.

Introducing Our New Canadian Datacenter: TOR1



Today, we’re excited to announce the launch of our first Canadian datacenter in beautiful Toronto!

It's hard to deny that the Canadian startup ecosystem has been booming. There are nearly half a million software developers throughout Canada, and we at DigitalOcean have always felt lots of love from the Canadian developer community. Today we're excited to send some love back their way as we proudly open the doors to our Canadian datacenter, TOR1. Universe, a platform for people to discover and create events based in Toronto, is already a DigitalOcean customer. We are excited to help them expand their business in Canada.

This was a highly requested location. Each hypervisor comes equipped with 40GbE networking and the latest model of SSDs.

Because all of these Droplets will be physically in Canada, if your business needs to keep data in the Great White North, you’ll now be able to do that. DigitalOcean is committed to upholding the highest standards in privacy and security, and TOR1 enables us to extend those protections to our customers’ customers.

To celebrate the TOR1 launch with our friends in Canada, we'll be hosting events throughout October. Save the dates for your cities: Toronto (Oct 13-15), Vancouver (Oct 20-22), and Montreal (Oct 28 — 29). The official event details will be added to this post soon.

Head over to the Droplet create page or use the API to spin up a maple-flavored Droplet in TOR1 today!

Series B Funding

Объявили о закрытии очередного раунда финансирования. 



www.digitalocean.com/company/blog/series-b-funding-writing-a-new-chapter-in-the-digitalocean-story/
For over three years, we’ve been driven by the desire to empower developers and make cloud infrastructure simple. To date, over 500,000 developers have deployed more than 6 million Droplets on DigitalOcean and as the infrastructure needs of our developer community have continued to evolve, we have aspired to as well.
Today, we’re excited to announce that we’ve closed a Series B funding round worth $83 million, led by Access Industries with participation from Andreessen Horowitz. This funding represents our continued commitment to helping developers thrive and to help scaling startups grow on our infrastructure.
