DO Ideas 2

Store Snapshots in Different Region

I would be great idea to allow transferring of Snapshot to different reason/data center. This will ensure 100% safety to avoid any accident at the active data center.

    Hi Amar! We in fact already support this. On the "Images" page (, you can copy your snapshot to other regions. See this screenshot: Additionally, we encrypt and store copies of snapshots off site to ensure that if there was an issue with the hardware, your data would be safe.

    I am big fan of Digital Ocean. Because of DO, I am no longer a caged parrot in shared hosting.

    From bottom of heart. Thank you.
