Today we're celebrating our 3rd year since becoming officially incorporated as a company in 2011. So much has happened since then. We went from a small 5 person team to a not-so-small 90 person company. Well actually, we went from a small 5 person team with a shark, to a not-so-small 90 person company… with a shark.
Here at DigitalOcean, Go is quickly becoming one of our favorite programming languages. After a few internal debates, I've distilled a few thoughts that I'd like to share with teams new to Go (or thinking of taking it on in the future).
The MongoHQ Team: We're pleased to announce that DigitalOcean is the latest cloud to host production ready Elastic Deployments of MongoDB. At MongoHQ, we wanted to combine our Database-as-a-Service with DigitalOcean's fast and convenient cloud technology, jumping at the chance to partner with them and make that a reality.
For the past couple of weeks, we've been testing a new version of the DigitalOcean API. We're now excited to invite you to try out our public beta! We've rewritten the newest version of our API from the ground up, and we're looking for feedback from our community as to what features you'd like to see and how current ones can be made better.
Since our launch, IPv6 has been one of the most requested features in our community. Today we are excited to announce that public IPv6 addresses are now available for all Droplets in our Singapore region. IPv6 can be enabled during Droplet creation, or added to existing Droplets without the need for a reboot. This will be the standard for all new datacenter locations going forward – several of which will be launching within the next few months.
