This November, we inaugurated a new Australian data center SYD1, increased the power of our storage, connected with builders at our annual deploy conference, and more. Check out the latest updates and enhancements below.

DigitalOcean Storage

Block storage increased up to 50% and Object storage is up to 100% faster with this major performance boost to DigitalOcean Storage. DigitalOcean Volumes input-output operations per second (IOPS) and throughput increased up to ~50% supporting rapid block storage operations. Spaces Requests Per Second (RPS) has doubled, expanding up to 1500 requests per IP address per second.

DigitalOcean Droplets (IaaS)

New SYD1 Sydney, Australia data center expands our global footprint

We launched the Sydney, Australia (SYD1) data center region and you can now deploy Droplets, managed databases, and other products in our expanding global reach.

Fedora 37 is now available

The Fedora 37 (fedora-37-x64) base image is now available in the control panel and via the API. This quickstart helps you create snapshots of Droplets and Volumes you can save and access images on-demand.

The 3rd Gen of DigitalOcean Premium Droplets with AMD EPYCTM processors

The third generation AMD EPYCTM processors (code name Milan) are available in our Premium AMD Droplet plans. The new Droplets are powered by 3rd Gen AMD EPYCTM processors, superfast PCIe Gen 4 storage, and high-speed 100 GbE networking for top performance.

While customers can’t select their specific processors, many Premium AMD Droplets created in the SFO3, SGP1, FRA1, and NYC1 data centers already run on 3rd gen AMD EPYCTM processors as we continue to deploy them.

DigitalOcean Kubernetes (DOKS)

Migrate any DOKS cluster to the new control plane and add HA

Today, we are excited to announce that you can migrate any DOKS cluster to the new control plane and enable High Availability your favorite way. If you created a cluster prior to June 2022 you might be on an older control plane, upgrade now to take advantage of the new features.

DigitalOcean Standard and Premium Support Plans

Free, Standard, and Premium support lifts up startups

At DigitalOcean we are committed to serving every customer. That’s why we offer a choice between Free, Standard, and Premium support plans. The new Standard and Premium plans ensure fast responses by dedicated experts through additional channels like video calls, and customers can get an architecture review, custom onboarding, help with products, and other personalized assistance.

DigitalOcean Developer Solutions

Meet PyDO, DigitalOcean’s official Python API client

We are excited to announce PyDO, DigitalOcean’s Python API client library. PyDO allows Python developers to interact with and manage their DigitalOcean account resources through a Python abstraction layer. Fully supported and maintained by DigitalOcean, PyDO is now available to install.

DigitalOcean Marketplace

Instant OSS global communication with Mastodon

The Mastodon Droplet 1-Click app is open-source software that provides a microblogging platform akin to others like Twitter, but instead of being centralized, it is a federated network.

Our Solutions Experts are available to assist you with any custom setups, migration, and pricing.

Happy coding! Ivan Tarin Sr. Product Marketing Manager
