At DigitalOcean, our vision has always been to build a platform that allows developers to run their infrastructure at scale without getting in their way. To date, the top feature request from our community has been to have the ability to add additional disk space to their Droplets. Today, we are excited to introduce Block Storage to make that possible.
Great news: SFO2 is now live! It will be our second West Coast datacenter joining SFO1, one of our most popular. By adding a second datacenter to the region, we are enabling developers to build out more resilient infrastructure. Creating redundancy by scaling across multiple datacenters in the same region enables more robust applications.
Yesterday, network access was taken down to sharethesafety.org which was hosted on our service by a customer, an intermediate platform provider. We want to let you know what happened.
At DigitalOcean we know that it takes teamwork to build and ship great things to the world. Our own products wouldn’t exist without passionate, hard-working teams collaborating to create easy-to-use experiences for developers.
Today we are excited to announce the launch of our first datacenter in India and our twelfth globally. Developers can now launch Droplets in our newest region, Bangalore (BLR1)!
