Will 6x SSD be coming to CPU droplets?

Hello, I notice that for memory optimised you can choose 6x and 3x SSD but for CPU optimised you can only choose 2x SSD.

Are these droplets likely to get a 6x or 3x SSD?

I’m getting close to the limit on my 2x SSD droplet and would rather resize the whole thing than start playing around with volumes or spaces.

Hi @greenspark,

I don’t think there are any plans to do so however it does seem like a good idea and as such I’ll recommend you to post it here:

This is the best place to post an idea that can get traction and then be included.

Additionally, I’ll recommend contacting DigitalOcean support. It’s possible they’ll create the Droplet for you. You can reach them here:

Hope that helps! - KFSys.

Hey @greenspark,

I don’t think that there are any official plans for this just yet.

The best thing to do to get your voice heard regarding this would be to head over to our Product Ideas board and post a new idea, including as much information as possible for what you’d like to see implemented.

If you are very close to your limit already, please reach out to our amazing support team who will be more than happy to assist you with this issue! :)

Hope that helps!

- Bobby.
