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.
We’ve revamped our referral program as a way of giving back. Our community has grown rapidly thanks to you spreading the word and showing love for DO – so we’ve decided to hook your friends up with some credit for taking a dive into DigitalOcean.
NYC3 is live! To keep up with the high demand for capacity on the East Coast, we’ve opened a new datacenter location in New York: NYC3. This will be the first US location with IPv6 support, which can be enabled during Droplet creation or added to existing Droplets. Private networking is also available in NYC3.
