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?

Hey @reinhardt,

I don’t think that there are any officially announced plans for a data center in South Africa yet. But this is a great idea! The best thing to do to get your voice heard regarding this would be to head over to our Product Ideas board and post a new idea, including as much information as possible for what you’d like to see implemented.
