Best region for Europe Users. Secure, important Data-Privacy laws, amm...
+1, that would be great
+1 - A data center in Switzerland would b great.
Is this ever going to happen?
yes, this would be really great
I have a concrete usecase. I have used DO in the past and I am a big fan. However my current company insists on a Swiss based data center. The alternatives are 'OK' - but I find myself missing DO's features and most of all the documentation. So the moment DO gets a Swiss data center I will migrate our servers. Just saying.
As mentioned on twitter I'll be even willing to pay a little extra for a swiss location!
+1! Yes, a data center in Switzerland would be great!
@BIlly Rowe, DigitalOcean Inc is an American company. DigitalOcean Switzerland SA wouldn't.
No big cloud player until now in Switzerland
Nyr is right -- we could never be centered in Switzerland, and mention 'data-privacy Laws' because it is an American company so U.S. Law stays in affect.
DMCA requests would still be processed, because it is an American company.
Switzerland has the best data-privacy Laws, and has NO copyright Laws. They are the furthest from American Copyright Laws...
But if the company (DO) has HQ in America, they have to process takedown requests as if the datacenter was in the U.S.
Pretty stupid suggestion for the data privacy laws, since DigitalOcean is an American company.
Amsterdam and Frankfurt are much closer and cheaper/easier, Switzerland is not going to happen just because some guys want to be cool and have a Swiss IP for their website.
This is one of the important region ever.
Swiss always has the best internet too! I vote yay, Im in WI, USA.
Of course in Switzerland!
Yes please! +1
This would be so very important for us too! Switzerland has quite a lack of Paas/Saas possibilities at the moment and a DigitalOcean datacenter in Zurich would definitely be something many are interested in.
+3 Zurich Datacenter
The best place to host an email server or owncloud server.
+3 indeed, Zurich is a great place, lots of colocation facilities, even with "lend a hand" services for setup and operation.
exactly my opinion, also maybe most independent location ..
