Hi,

I don’t know well cloud VM like digitalocean how much they provide privacy and independence when we buy VM from them but I want to create a privacy VPN server like Outline Server or Wireguard for people access it without worry about IP log and try to make internet more open in my censorship region.

Sure, when I create VPN server and provide key access, I don’t know who will use this VPN and what they’re looking for, including penetration test.

Is anyone know how digitalocean can be trust and is their VM is independent (like my own server)?

Hi @suloveoun,

The VPN will have logs, on your Droplet. So it will be up to you to remove/clear it in some way.

Regarding your Droplet being independent, you’ll have a Droplet, it’s environment is separated from other Droplets. DigitalOcean Droplets are Linux-based virtual machines (VMs) that run on top of virtualized hardware. Each Droplet you create is a new server you can use, either standalone or as part of a larger, cloud-based infrastructure. Having said that, you can be sure there are other machines on the same virtualized hardware.

Basically, your Droplet is separated in terms of content and files however it’s on a machine which hosts multiple Droplets.
