Are Droplets Created with Snapshots Connected?

February 10, 2016 2.2k views

I created a single droplet and configured it to run my application. I then took a snapshot of that droplet and created two more droplets from that snapshot. When I deployed app changes to the original droplet, the two new droplets also received the same code. I only scp’d to the original droplet. Is this supposed to happen?

Each created droplet has its own storage. Presumably you pushed your modifications to both droplets or your droplets pull their information from the same source.

  • Yes, they do have their own storage. What i did was create a test api endpoint in my code to tell me which droplet i was speaking to, and then uploaded this to the original droplet only. When i pinged the endpoint on all the droplets, i got the same response. Presumably it shouldn’t exist on the other two…
