Does anyone know if Digital Ocean has any NTP servers on their local network? If they do not, does anyone know of an NTP server in London 1, or any other DC, they wouldn’t mind others using?

DigitalOcean does not provide internal NTP servers in our datacenters. If you are looking for NTP servers that are network close to LON1, the NTP Pool Project has a UK-specific zone. You can add these to your /etc/ntp.conf file:

       server 0.uk.pool.ntp.org
       server 1.uk.pool.ntp.org
       server 2.uk.pool.ntp.org
       server 3.uk.pool.ntp.org
