Would Digital Ocean consider offering "bare" droplets?

It would be nice to be able to spin-up a bare droplet/VM and drop an otherwise unsupported (eg RHEL or SuSE) OS onto it.

Does DO have this on the roadmap?


I agree, @adampats - being able to “share” images I’ve built would be fantastic


A potential alternative would be to add an image import feature (OVF or AWS AMI style).
