Any updates on a DC here in South Africa?

As we have AWS here (locations in Cape Town and Johannesburg, and recently in Nairobi, Kenya…) but really want to stick with DO! its been a few years and im sure you have enough requests from African devs for a DC here in Africa?

Hello @reinhardt,

We currently do not have a Data center in Africa.However, we would love to hear more from you and you share the idea here.

Hope this helps!

Cheers, Lalitha

We have a requirement to that requires data to be stored with South Africa and DO has no service running. Will they ever answer.

Hey @reinhardt,

The best thing to do would be to head over and add your vote to it, as well as add any additional information in the comments for exactly what you’d like to see implemented!

Hope that helps!
