Question

Can I share an attached volume between droplets?

I know I can share disk resources using NFS or SSHFS but I wonder if a volume can be shared directly between 2 droplets. I know it sounds weird but I am curious about it.

This function is still unavailable in 2019 ! I really need this , please.

+1 for this feature. As said, due to technical limitations, implementation of this feature is not practical or even impossible, which I totally understand. But what I don’t understand is inability for DO to provide some alternative, like managed NFS cluster or similar. It’s not that hard, and still would be useful for many.

+1 we really need this feature.
