Status of droplet availability in AMS2 and the future of AMS1 for existing droplets?

January 30, 2014 2k views
Anyone know if it's "safe" to rely on being able to create 512Mb droplets in AMS2 now? I see a few questions in the forum from not long ago saying that they destroyed a droplet to make a fresh start, but then couldn't make a new 512Mb. (eg: this thread I was just able to create a 512Mb in AMS1, but I notice that AMS1 has vanished. Also, has stopped working. But my existing AMS1 droplet is still running. While I'm doing other "fiddling" anyway, should I make a new AMS2 droplet, (with a newer linux - bonus!) and move everything from the AMS1 droplet and kill it off?

Just open a ticket when you find yourself in that situation and support will do their best to help you get a new droplet. There is some capacity set aside to make sure any existing customer in the same datacenter can expand as they grow without long delays.

AMS1 is located in a facility we can only get more racks when it frees up. AMS2 we have plenty of extra racks for expansion plus plenty of room if we need more. There can be times where new droplets outpace hardware arriving but contact support when that is in your way.
