Instant setup

I know you guys deploy in 1 minute or so.., however I don't want to wait 1 minute for a VM, it should be instant!, take a look at instantserver.io for a way to achieve it.

    There is no way to instantly provision virtual servers outside of having them pre-built and then allocated, not provisioned. We work very hard to get our create times down to as fast possible so we are constantly fine-tuning that. However, pre-built images won't work for anything other than the defaults and wouldn't work for creates off of your snapshots so unfortunately this is effort that would be wasted. Thanks!

    http://instantserver.io is actually powered by Digital Ocean droplets. My guess that that they are instant because you don't actually get a whole virtual instance but a part of an existing virtual instance.
