Singapore DC Fast Resize

Posted April 18, 2014 4.9k views
Hi I have two droplets on the Singapore DC, both of which don't allow for Fast Resize. This is a pain for me, because I have webuzo cPanel and SSL keys on both, which all need to be reconfigured if I want to load them from a snapshot.

The Fast Resize feature is limited to the resources available on the physical hypervisor that your server is on. If there are no resources available, you will not be able to resize your droplet, unfortunately.

You can take a snapshot of your droplet, delete your droplet to release the IP, and once it's fully deleted, spin up a new droplet with the snapshot you took. The new droplet will almost always have the same IP address.
Hi Kamal

This is a canned response from the tutorials.

I have tried creating a new droplet from a snapshot and it doesn't work properly, because there are a lot of settings I have to change in the cPanel.

Is this more prevalent at Singapore. Am experiencing the same issue.

Even I am experiencing the same issue. Is it a real issue with Singapore DC?

It depends on the hypervisor your droplet is on. If it it doesn’t have enough space for an upgraded droplet, you will not be able to upgrade your droplet. But you can take a snapshot and re-deploy it so that it’s deployed on a different hypervisor.

this doesn’t make much sense because i’m trying to fast resize to less resources. Seems like fast-resize is just disabled for droplets in SG DC
