Cancelation of droplet activities

  • Posted June 25, 2013

When ever you create a droplet, enable console access etc… sometimes it’s useful to cancel that operation as access to that droplet’s controls are removed…

For instance… I’m currently trying to spin up a droplet in New York… it’s frozen on 57secs. It would be wonderful if I could cancel that operation.

Another time: Couldn’t access a droplet due to recent IP connectivity issues in San Francisco… during troubleshooting, enabled console access which ultimately froze. This disabled access to power down the droplet so I could then snapshot and transfer to New York during the outage.

I find these issues fundamentally limiting. Every action, if possible, should have control to cancel, revert, ignore, whatever…
