Do we have plans to build a Datacenter in Japan?

Posted October 27, 2014 5k views

I’m live in China, I want to know here is a plan to build a Datacenter in Japan? Japan is faster to connect to Google and other website, sometimes Singapore Datacenter is very slow to connect to Google. Thanks!

We are looking to expand into more regions, but we don’t currently have any plans to open a datacenter in Japan. We use UserVoice to track feature requests and gauge user demand. You might want to open a request there to see if it generates votes from more users.

Thanks for the feedback!

in fact, in china, many users choose linode but not digitalOcean just because it’s faster ( when we choose japan as region) .

although linode’s price is rich.

so , i think you should add new site in japan.

Hi, in Japan.
Tokyo DC of Linode and VULTR have always sold out very popular in Japan.
DigitalOcean is more popular than they are in Japan.
You great success if you start the DC in Japan.

Hey @Rivsen,

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

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 adding any additional information in the comments for exactly what you’d like to see implemented!

Hope that helps!
