Is it possible to partition a LUN on a droplet.
I kind of found a solution to this issue.
I used a file to simulate a block device:
mkdir -p /lun/
dd if=/dev/zero of=/lun/sdb1.img bs=1M count=10240
losetup /dev/loop1 /lun/sdb1.img
This creates the illusion of a 10GB lun. Block Device

I suspect that using losetup to create a loopback device is the best/only option.

RancherOS looks like a great OS for docker based applications. I'd like like to know what do you think about it and if Digital Ocean have any plans to offer RanchoOS as a distro option. Thanks.
First is it possible? and if yes, what is the correct procedure ? Just resize them one after the other from my dashboard and they will all sync or should resize one and wait for a certain time, than resize the second, wait and resize the third ?
I am trying to configure 3 servers to be placed around the world for quicker response time though how can I keep the data identical across all machines say I was running a wordpress or ghost website? And of course having this process automated
Recently (last night), I created my 4th droplet (devserver04) and received a PRIVATE IP = **10.130.61.161**.
And because it is in a different network segment with my other 3 droplets (which I create months ago), with their PRIVATE IPs are: **10.130.115.149** (devserver02), **10.130.115.150** (devserver03), and **10.130.115.147** (devserver01), I cannot **PING** any of my previous droplets from my new droplet.
I really need to setup database **REPLICATION** amongst these droplets.
Please I need help (urgent)
Trace-route from my 1st droplet (devserver01) to my 4th is like below:
dev@devserver01:~# traceroute 10.130.61.161
traceroute to 10.130.61.161 (10.130.61.161), 30 hops max, 60 byte packets

While trace-route from my 4th droplet to my 1st is like below:
dev@devserver04:~# traceroute 10.130.115.147
traceroute to 10.130.115.147 (10.130.115.147), 30 hops max, 60 byte packets
