Unfortunately that is currently not possible, Josef.

Sorry to roll this up again, but is it possible to switch to a custom kernel or initrd? I didn’t find an option for this. This would make things much easier.

+1 after the news telling “DigitalOcean leaks customer data between VMs” http://hn.meteor.com/posts/6983097-347bd <br>I understand the overhead, but simply i need it, or i can’t use digitalocean for my vms

+1 here too. Anything?

+1 on this.

Would be awesome to have this as an option when spawning new Droplets.

I also need some solution here.

Bump. I am interested in this as well. Is it possible to use dm-crypt or fuse from our VPS’s?

Edit: What about as an option? You can run an encrypted or unencrypted file system?

I understand the necessary overhead, but there are several applications where it is useful or necessary. For example, encrypting a database at rest. Pre-encrypting files doesn’t help for that use case.
