Jesus fuck it’s been 3 years and you’re still “working on it”? Brb spinning up some namecheap instances.
+1 to this. I’d happily pay y'all extra money for additional storage. Also, I wouldn’t mind if that storage was on a non-SSD. The speed of the droplets performance is great, but for the things that I’d need to storage, I won’t need to access as quickly. So, if that’s an option, that’s fine too.
I am currently with some DO droplets as trial. I also have some VPS in Vietnam, some in Rackspace HK. I also need more space with DO so that I can shift the ones in Rackspace HP to DO.
Due to this never ended thread, I’m moving all my content away from digital ocean. I was ready to move all my other apps currently running on AWS and on SOFTLAYER…… but as we don’t see any move on this critical topic, I’m dropping.... bye bye digitalocean!
I am also aborting my evaluation and moving on. You can beat amazon by keeping it simple but people can’t live without adding disk to their servers. It isn’t that hard to at least add NFS as a purchasable resource. Severs can grow with LVM.
I love DO but i am going to have to move out if you do not add this feature in less than a month :(
I’ve been using DO to host some sites for my clients, and now I’m looking at needing disk space for a project where we need a low power server with a bunch of disk space. It looks like AWS is going to be what we end up using.
Currently this is the only factor holding us back from using another platform. We love DigitalOcean and have used it for about a year, but as we will be using your service for hosting databases for an app, we cant take the risk of running out of space. What do we do if our databases will increase past the tier we are in? We cant keep resizing, especially if we will also be implementing load balancing.
Digital Ocean, you guys rule! I have been using your services for personal and clients’ use alike for almost a year now and would be loath to have to switch over to another provider due to a particular requirement such as disk resizes + additional storage.
++1 to this, hope it gets implemented soon!
I am also waiting for this feature… At the moment Vultr has the best option for extra storage space with low hardware specs.
Please add this feature soon!! This is the only thing keeping me from consolidating all of my scattered VPS’s over to Digital Ocean. Please Please Please!
Thank you :)
It’s been 3 years… Are we really going to have to find a different provider if we want more storage, without paying for more CPU cores and RAM which we’re not going to use?
+1 I need a lower CPU/Mem instance with at least 120GB storage (Doesn’t have to be SSD but, would be awesome). Might start using Digital Ocean if adding storage is possible in the future until then finding a cheaper option.
What a shame DigitalOcean. After spending few years with AWS, my first experience with DigitalOcean is so impressive in ease of use and speed. I almost decided to move my apps from AWS to DO until I hit upon this message post. Very sad to see that DO is so unresponsive to user requests and users are disappointed and leaving DO. It is unthinkable for a startup to behave in this manner.
Are your investors not paying attention to customer feedback?
You just lost another potential client. I will stick with AWS for now. Good Bye…
It’s been a long time coming but we are now in the final private beta testing stages with customers for our new block storage service. This will allow customers to create persistent and highly available storage devices that they can attach to droplets which also have snapshot and resize capabilities.
This will allow customers that either need to expand storage to their existing droplets, or have larger storage needs then our current plans allow to scale their infrastructure with us.
We have another month of testing to ensure that the product meetings production quality and then we will be able to move to GA and launching it in several datacenters.
Very excited to get this out door in the summer as well as many other exciting developments to come this year.
I got this error:
Error creating Volume: POST https://api.digitalocean.com/v2/volumes: 403 (request “b8173bc0-5b03-4fa7-88bc-4c7bd1b09812”) volume limit exceeded
I couldn’t find any limit mentioned for total volume count anywhere, but apparently there is a limit of 25, and I couldn’t see any form to increase this volume limit like droplet limit.
I’m writing here for making this information public. Is there any way to increase this limit? we’ll need at least 200 volumes in fra-1 region.
