When will NYC1 datacenter be PCI compliant?

My droplets are in NYC1 data center, but I need my solution to be PCI compliant. Do I have to move them to NYC2 or NYC3? They are all setup with firewall rules, private networking, volumes mounted, etc. Not a small task to move them all to a different data center.

Hello, @jeff93eceb16c6f

If you are able to wait a couple months, I would recommend holding off on transferring your resources over to NYC2 or NYC3.

PCI Compliance paperwork for NYC1 has hit some COVID-related delays, but is imminent.

I will ping you here when the update is available.

You can check the Datacenter colocation attestations & certifications using this link:

To request an NDA for a SOC report/certificate listed below, or if you have any other compliance-related questions please contact our Customer Support team -

Hope this helps!
