Question

Is Digital Ocean going to support an Australian Datacentre ?

I have noticed DO still doesn’t have support for an Australian Datacentre and unfortunately this is starting to become a major problem for our customers.

Are there any plans in the short term future about supporting an Australian Datacentre location for managed databases and Droplets?

Is this going to mean the only option is AWS if there is no short term plans?

Thank you

Hey @hawlifa,

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!
