Literally five years later (as at today) and still no Aus/NZ offering? I would really like to use an Australian sided server if available for my State & Local government tasks. I am legally bound to keep files/services on Australian soil, so that rules out my use of DO for anything other than fast real-world testing. What would it take for DO to make this happen?

Any updates its 2019 and I still can’t see a AUS Data Centre

2019 and still no AUS data centre!

and Bump some more!!

bumpity bump

wondering when will DO open its Australian shop?

We were considering migrating our applications to Digital Ocean for various reasons, from AWS. Although The ping times to AWS infrastructure within Oz is below 100ms. Digital Oceans closest warehouse is Singapore with 120ms+ response times.

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!

Great idea, sounds like it’d be super useful!

Hope that helps!

I totally agree DO, i cant believe there has been requests since 2014 for an Australian Data centre and still no response?

I don’t use Digital Ocean now as they don’t offer Australian Servers. I would if they did but it’s Vultr for me now.

+1000 for this. Come on DO, it’s now been 5 years of people asking for Australian servers.

Clearly your not interested in the Australian market although it would be lucrative

+1! We’re forced to used AWS Sydney because data of my clients needs to stay on Australian soil + 20ms ping. The 200ms Singapore ping is too slow in comparison. We’d switch to DO Sydney in a heart beat.
