It would be great to see a datacenter in South Africa. - http://www.100tb.com/blog/2013/02/data-center-africa/
+1 for DC in ZA!
+1 Please :-(
+1 for a DC in South Africa.
Please open a South African Data Centre
I will move some rather large project directly onto your service
Carl Kaufman you kreature
London would be the best for now.
So, while we wait for a local service, can anyone tell me which is the closest DC (lowest latency) from SA?
Yes Please + 1
Microsoft will be opening up 2 Datacenters in South Africa this year, so it shows that they think it is a good idea.
Would be great.
Yes please... I would upload stax of websites!!!!
Yes please! +1
Yes please!! A Digital Ocean DC in South Africa would make our operations so much better - we host services across multiple countries and Digital Ocean provides us a rock solid back end everywhere except in Africa (the latency to other DC's, even UK, is just too slow, so we are forced to use local hosting providers who do not have the same performance or level of maturity)
YES! or at least a QOS A to B.
I would pay dearly.
That would be most convenient, I concur with all below and all above (eventually)
Yes please! I prefer your simplistic interface and API over any of the local offerings, but the ~200ms ping to the nearest DC is just too much.
yes please need you in SA ASAP!!!!!!!!!!!
Come to South Africa please!
Digital Ocean. There is a massive growing Demand in South Africa for Cloud Services. Between larger companies such as Vox Telecom, Hetzner, Afrihost, Web Africa, And the like you would have a potential market share in the billions (Rands), especially since these companies, as well as my own would JUMP at the opportunity to build off of your infrastructure. Not to mention the growing interest in Cloud Computing for Developers in South Africa as a whole. Literally the only thing stopping me at the moment is the delay caused by the distance of the locations of your data centres to my users. There has to be a way to make it worth your while to invest in South Africa. We have State of the art data centres already at your disposal if need be. (Teraco, Gallor Manor, Vox, etc)
Yes, please! +1
Africa is virgin market in this regard. You should definitely consider it even if on a smaller scale. SA, Nigeria, East Africa offer good markets and technical skills.
I love your service. In South Africa we have legislation that compels businesses to keep any personal data on servers within the country. DigitalOcean far outperforms anything available locally both in terms of quality and price but there is no South African Data Centres. I am convinced that a South African Data Centre will not only be hugely successful but it will also open the whole of the African market to DigitalOcean.
Agree, Africa needs a dedicated datacenter. Guys this would really help.....
Yes! This would be amazing. I am a Senior Technical officer at a Uni here, and DO data centre's would be great! There are a few prime spots in Stellenbosch...
DO the African Market is huge and mostly from we here in Nigeria. Try settings up your Africa Datacenter, and I bet you guys it would be a huge market ever gotten
Good to go with DC in SA. There are 153 votes so far. What number of votes do you require before making an official response regarding implementation?
We have ~ 300 USD p.m. hosted in various DO European DCs that we may have to be cancelled when/if South Africa brings in POPI data privacy laws. We would love to migrate this to a South African DO DC.
Im all for it! Please notify me when its up!! :D :D
Yes we need DigitalOcean mainly because the startups climate is changing in South Africa.
yes please! would be great
Yes yes yes yes pleeeaassee!!!!
Yes please. My opinion the best spot for hosting would be Teraco. Vendor Neutral DC with excellent peering options at NapAfrica peering points with the likes of level3, google etc.
www.hetzner.co.za omg we have datacenters
Colocation and managed servers.
Yes please. Would love to see it in South Africa
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE Digital Ocean, there's a https://www.teraco.co.za/ in the major centres in South Africa.
Just waiting for you to pull in an setup!
Please bring it on
This is certainly a welcomed development. Please, DigitalOcean, extend your services to Africa.
a DC in South Africa from DigitalOcean? Hell yes.
Would definitely like to see a DC in SA.
We have a couple completely vacant
You won't be notified about changes to this idea.
