Hi there,

We’re excited to announce that our newest state-of-the-art data center in Sydney, Australia (SYD1) is open for business!

Starting today, you can spin up Droplets, Kubernetes clusters, or any of your favorite products in the SYD1 data center. Sydney marks our first data center in the southern hemisphere and expands our global footprint to 15 data centers across 9 regions around the world.

Ping isn’t necessarily an issue for me, but legal requirements are. Certain privacy laws require documents to be stored on Australian shores. So I have to host everything elsewhere which is less than ideal.

Hello there,

It looks like someone has had the same idea before and has posted it on our Product Ideas board. 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!
