DO Ideas 2

Datacenter in Japan.

Singapore location is great and works well. But for HA applications it would be nice to have another Asia datacenter...

    You need to add a Tokyo DigitalOcean Tokyo datacenter. Laws in Japan insist on data being stored in country.

    While data transfer is blazing fast within Japan -- connectivity outside the country is nothing like North America, Europe, etc. That's why a local data center is crucial and Singapore won't suffice.

    Tokyo means business guys!

    Japan is a major communications hub in Asia (just check undersea cable maps) - so it would be a great location for you to open a data centre. I personally will make use of it for multiple droplets - I need it for a low latency application that needs high reliability for users inside Japan.
    It would also make you more competitive with other large VPS providers that have a Japanese data centre.

    A data center in Japan or Hong Kong, with fast connection to China mainland and other east Asia countries needed.

    I'm sure the sales will grow fast based on the huge demand from China and other east Asia countries.The VPS sold out of linode's Tokyo data center is an example and strong proof of that..

    So if digitalocean wants to build another Aisan datacenter,plz make it in Japan,or DO will receive subpoenas from U.S. courts again and again.

    Add a japan datacenter is important. It is not for japan local users. It is for the Chinese users. As you may know there is a lot of people in China who is in great need for uncensored Internet access, VPS is one of many ways to achieve that. Linode and Vultr has built Data center in Japan, Digital Ocean should also consider that.

  • Lajamerr_Mittesdine commented
    September 11, 2018 17:05

    I would also like to voice my support for a datacenter in Japan.

    The question is, how economically viable is setting up a datacenter in Japan.

    There is at least three different target groups, existing members of Digital Ocean who would setup a droplet in the Japan region if available, people who have not joined Digital Ocean who might reconsider if Digital Ocean adds a datacenter there, and Japanese Citizens who do not browse English websites who might become a potential customer if such a service becomes available in their language.

    The question is how big each group is and if it's significant enough to warrant the huge capital required to setup the datacenter.

    Anyways +1 vote from me.

    Setting up a data center is not like going to a store and buying a drink, there must be reliable data center providers, tier-1 bandwidth providers, etc.

    Moreover, Digital Ocean will also have to have some staff over there to manage the hyper-visors and ensure security.
