Asia Region Datacenter

DigitalOcean is so popular in Hostloc.com, a famous Chinese host talking forum. So more and more Chinese buy your vps these days. Not only can new asian datacenters bring you more money, but also Chinese can get high speed experience. As the Hostloc.com' webmaster, i suggest you set up new asian datacenters like Hong Kong and Japan. Thanks!

    Hey guys, We've launched our first POP in Asia in Singapore. We're also actively working on establishing more peering relationships in the area as we've quickly learned that routing in the Asia Pacific region is a bit different than in the US or EU. We've made significant headway in bringing on more peering in the last two weeks after our launch and we're also bringing on new connectivity providers to improve latency for customers around the region including Korea, India, China, Japan, Thailand and Australia. We are very excited to have extended our global footprint and we selected Singapore as a great central location for Asia that also has very business friendly logistics. Thanks!

    We're all dying for a Hong Kong data center! C'mon you can do it! ;)

    Seems I'm not the only one to have discovered that connection to mainland China through the SIngapore data center is veery slow..

    So please, Hong Kong -- and get some serious China bandwidth for us too!

    Those in need of a decent China connection -- check out this post:

  • Miracle commented

    ping higher to LA (ISP VNPT)
    please add peer at HKIX

  • Maddie Zhan commented
    September 11, 2018 18:32

    traceroute from China Telecom to SGP1 node first goes to Japan then works it way to Singapore, which makes the latency very high (~300ms).

    using China Mobile network yields a much better result (~80ms)

    hmm..

  • Ian Heggie commented
    September 11, 2018 18:32

    For those that care ... In comparison google.com.au is min/avg/max/mdev = 39.208/54.754/146.476/32.295 ms
    for me ... so hosting in australia would still make a difference.

    My ISP (www.internode.com.au) is min/avg/max/mdev = 36.555/40.796/58.936/6.962 ms

    An Avg 29.2 ms of the time is getting to my next hop lns20.mel4.on.ii.net

    September 11, 2018 18:32

    Congradulations - I look forward to the new peering.

    At the moment san fran has a more consistant performance for me.

    I did a quick ping check from three different computers based in victoria, australia that have different internet provider setups (one aapt, one internode(iinet), one a load share between telstra and internode. I created fresh droplets in each center and then did ten pings to each, repeated three times.

    Basically san franscisco and singapore turned out to be neck and neck:

    SanFran min 185.7 avg 204.1 (best) max 222.0 (best) Mstd 8.1 (best)
    Sinapore min 111.8 (best) avg 213.0 max 228.0 Mstd 9.5

    In comparison the worst avg was:

    Amsterdam-2 min 337.5 avg 356.7, max 380.4, Mstd 10.9

    (For the curious, the max value is the average of the three max value runs, to better reflect typical maximums, the min is the min of the thre minimums because I was trying to find the shortest time it could be)

    Could you guy update the blog on the status more frequently?

    It is so high latency from China, it is not worth to use SG compare to SFO1

  • Matt Freeman commented
    September 11, 2018 18:32

    Any possibility of peering at SGIX and is it Equinix SG? For example nearly all Thailand providers peer here (and unlike their transit these are largely uncongested), it almost critical for a SG host. Bonus points if you also sort a connection to HKIX.

    While the 512MB plan maintains around $5, it's pretty reasonable for us to keep balance the HELL expensive DC in HK, but exclude my POV, Singapore or Japan is a good choice while they provides a better backbone.

    Off topic, if anyone recall the Youtube Incident, Hong Kong is the first one who received the wrong IP, though this can't means anything but seems HK do have the advantages on their own special something. (In case you don't know: http://news.cnet.com/8301-10784_3-9878655-7.html)

    1. I am 99.9999% sure DO dont built their own DC. So Please stop suggesting them to "build" one.
    2. Japan / Singapore/ Hong Kong DataCentre Rack and bandwidth price are insanely expensive. Actually Japan is comparatively cheapest of the three but it is still much higher then EU or US. I highly doubt DO could provide services there without major overselling.

    Having said that i would too love DO being available in HK / Japan

    Actually the common VPS in Hong Kong (eg Ximbo) are overselling their services, plus the price they're providing are VERY EXPENSIVE. Which I think Digital Ocean got a chance on the market to compete with them.

  • Es Cendol commented
    September 11, 2018 18:32

    I think the cost investment to build data center in Indonesia is still too expensive compared to our neighbor (Singapore). And the bad things is the cost for bandwidth and the bad regulation in our country could make foreign investor (esp in tech field) will thinking again to build data center here. :D

    At least one ASIA data center added to available location would be a big + for DO

  • Es Cendol commented
    September 11, 2018 18:32

    I'd be agree to HK / SG datacenter, especially for serving my local business website I need a local datacenter which located near to my location (Indonesia), so I vote for new datacenter in Singapore, Hongkong, or Indonesia (but I think the investment cost will be more expensive :D)

  • Edwin S. commented
    September 11, 2018 18:32

    Current latency to San Francisco data center (which has better latency than New York data center) is around 220ms. That's why we need to have an Indonesia data center.

    CyberCSF would be another great data center.

  • Anonymous commented
    September 11, 2018 18:32

    Add my vote for Singpoare. Singapore has consistent bandwidth to Thailand and surrounding countries (Vietnam, Cambodia, Malaysia, Laos, Burma etc..). Hong Kong is a different stories on many providers end up routing via LA.

  • Adam Baxter commented

    Singapore or HK is a cheaper way to get decent (~100ms RTT) latency to Australia/NZ too.

    @Banh Mi Cua Em: I really dont like what you say because your sounds like BAD things are always from China (or Asian). If you say so, why you dont provide some numbers to support what your speak.

    DO, I would suggest that deploy a DC in HK or Japan because, other than you can have more clients from China, you can attract more clients who want to provide products, services to Chinese or Asian.

    BTW, I believe that the NSA news just approve who is the biggest hacker in the world.

    I am not suggest China, HK or Asian. You know, these people most of them are spamers and hackers. If you install CSF Firewall , and you will see your server will block a lot of China Server from Port Scanning. With your price $5 per month, these people will purchased a lot , and use your server as BOT to attacking... I see a bad future if you open DC in China or Asia, I am an Asian, and I really don't like what china people thinking. STOP SPAM please.

    Although I'm kind of 'jacking', your suggestion, I'd personally LOVE London (British) data servers. Although it's not really a huge issue to me (Although, I'd personally hop over to London if it was provided), my friends only use England based data servers and refuse to use this service because of this fact.

    Japan and Taiwan are good place that you can build your datacenter.
    And Taiwan is not a part of China, you got to know that.

    We will be providing updates here when we move forward with plans for an Asian DC but right now most likely our next new DC will be Brazil which we are currently investigating.

    Opening up a new DC takes quite a bit of work and unfortunately when we work with other international countries the requirements are entirely different so the process is much more involved than opening up a DC in say the US.

    Thanks

    Quite disappointing to see that you plan Asia during the year end. But if you look closely, this is the place where you will get the majority of customers.

    Will you update here when you have setup the DC?

    Agreed, we have a lot of customers in Singapore already and we're definitely looking into possible locations in the Area and Singapore is high on that list. =]

    Uploading/downloading speed is great from Asia (Taiwan), up to few megabytes per second! But the ping is way too high, from 225ms to 335ms.

  • Moisey Uretsky commented
    September 11, 2018 18:32

    There are not a lot of great Colo facilities in and around Asia so we are waiting on updates from some larger Colo providers about new datacenter facilities that they are planning to open in 2013.

    Once we have that information we'll be able to have more concrete estimates on when those new facilities will be available as regions inside of DigitalOcean.

    Thanks for the kind words.

    We are planning to expand to Asia.

    Initially we want to cover East Coast (US), West Coast (US), Europe, and Asia.

    We're half way there and hope to have Asia and the West Coast online before the end of the year.
