Hi @anirudhahikoka404,

In my experience, yes! I’ve actually never had downtime on my droplet however I’ve seen some maintenance messages for other regions which is quite normal however these maintenance windows were always mentioned before the maintenance being performed and not after.

All in all, I’m quite happy hosting my stuff here. Having said that, please bear in mind these are unmanaged Droplets. You’ll need to do everything yourself on them, except the creation part of course.

For me, that’s great as I hate someone else telling me what’s possible and what’s not. With having root access, I know I can do everything I want to.

Hi there,

In addition to what @KFSys mentioned, you could take a look at this feedback from a larger DigitalOcean customer:

Also for high uptime, I could suggest planning your infrastructure set up in a hight available manner:

Heartbeat is an open source program that provides cluster infrastructure capabilities—cluster membership and messaging—to client servers, which is a critical component in a high availability (HA) server infrastructure. Heartbeat is typically used in conjunction with a cluster resource manager (CRM), such as Pacemaker, to achieve a complete HA setup. However, in this tutorial, we will demonstrate how to create a 2-node HA server setup by simply using Heartbeat and a DigitalOcean Floating IP.
