And now it takes a long long time (or even failed) to destroy a droplet in SF cloud servers. It has been initiated 12 minutes ago and the status is "Your destroy is processing" :((

We had a bit of a heavy load when first launched the DC but you should have much better performance now.

We also updated our default creates for all customers to have VirtIO enabled from both the CP as well as the API so I think you should be seeing much improved network performance now.
