We are evaluating digitalocean as a move from baremetal to the cloud. We like the control panel and all the features digital ocean has to offer but we are extremely concerned about this droplet limit of 10. We are aware you can request an increase but we don’t simply want an increase, our business model would require unlimited droplets for proper scaling. We provide each of our clients isolated networks and VMs and would need to spin up a series of nodes for each client as well as dynamic scaling through out the day to meet load requirements.

Hello, @cphillips83

If you want to increase your droplet limit you’ll need to follow these steps:

First, access your account and navigate to your account page.

Once there, you’ll want to click the Increase link to open the form to increase your account’s current limit.if you’re having a limit of 25 the option to increase the limit to 50 should work instantly and the limit will be increased to 50 droplets.

If you require a higher limit, then fill out the form and after you’ve submitted the form, it will then be passed on to DigitalOcean’s support team for review.

Hope that this helps!
