Our metadata service is live! This enables Droplets to query information about themselves, and allows the use of CloudInit to bootstrap new servers. This is significant for users who want to improve the automation of their server provisioning process. As there are several products and services tied into this release, we want to provide a quick overview to get users up and running.
AMS3 is here! This is our first region in Amsterdam running v1.5 of our backend codebase, and we're actively seeking new regions to service developers throughout Europe. Users spinning up Droplets in the region can now enable IPv6, as well as take advantage of additional benefits, e.g. enabling networking services without the need to power off.
You may have noticed changes in the DigitalOcean community. Following the launch of our new website back in March, we have further upgraded the community to now offer a redesigned interface, user profiles, manual subscriptions, upvoting, and an overall more community-driven platform.
