    A DC in Australia would be highly desirable. You would capture the market from a lot of clients in government and commerce whose policies prevent them from hosting outside of AU.

    Since we've launched our latest DC we decided to set this topic to completed so that customers can get their votes back and begin to upvote requests that are about a specific geography/region this way your votes are about a specific location!

    Thanks!

    I can see you are showing this as completed. Just wondering whether this means you will still be getting DCs in UK etc?

    Hey Guys & Gals,

    Today we announced our newest DC location: San Francisco!

    We've also had several customers begin to request new DCs with specific locations such as Singapore, Canada, Brazil, etc.

    Given that this topic is generic and we're going to set this one to completed - since we've just launched our first new DC since it has been started and return to you all of your votes.

    This way you can now either up-vote the country/city specific DC request that already exists or create a new one, which will make it easier to voice your opinion about which facility you are most interested in next.

    Currently Brazil is the second most voted item on UserVoice and the highest most voted DC and we're going to start looking into that now that we've launched the US West Coast POP today.

    Thanks for your support and continued suggestions!

    Hey guys,

    Thanks for your feedback on this, we are definitely going to be opening up more DC locations and will be announcing the next one shortly.

    To make it easier to track where customers would like the next DC please make a separate request and up-vote it.

    Currently there are separate requests for Brazil, Canada, and also I believe the Asia region.

    Then we'll be able to close this one out and return your votes to you. =]

    +1 preferably for somewhere in Australia, or otherwise nearby (Singapore?)

  • John Fuller commented

    My vote is either Australia or Singapore.

    We will be announcing a new DC location very soon =]

    Equipment is already being shipped out this week =]

    I'd love to see an Asian site. I'm just really waiting for that before I get droplets. Japan would be ideal since it's the main hub for asia.

  • Moisey Uretsky commented
    September 11, 2018 19:25

    It looks like our first announcement will most likely be late April =]

    Stay tuned!

    Romania also will be a good choice .. also India is a good choice .. Thank you

    Great to see Australia being considered - a location in the Asia Pacific region makes sense in terms of potential market growth to reduce latency for users in the region.

    @Moisey Uretsky : AMS-IX is fine too. But in fact, ASIA is a good one too. Amsterdam is fine for pings in .EU, but Asia is pretty expensive in BW.

  • nguyen van tien commented

    Asia is need

  • Tuan Anh Tran commented

    Asia DC is mostly welcomed : )

  • Eugene OZ commented
    September 11, 2018 19:25

    To users: but with DC in Amsterdam, why do you need points in Europe more than points in Asia? If you will have nodes in Europe AND in Asia, users from Asia AND from Europe will have good "ping". I think ping between continents means much more than between countries in Europe.

    AMS-IX isn't small either ;)

  • Florian Strankowski commented

    Germany would be fine simply because of the following reasons:

    - super cheap bandwidth
    - connected directly to DE-CIX (worlds biggest IX)

    Hello from Russia! :)
    It's impossible to find stable enough DC in Russia, so I vote for Asia and/or Brasil.

  • Moisey Uretsky commented
    September 11, 2018 19:25

    Hiya,

    Yup, we are looking into Brazil as well =]

  • Anonymous commented

    I miss one for Brazil - or somewhere else to represent South America. US is far far away from here, and this makes a crap latency :(

    I know a lot of devs from Brazil that are migrating to Digital Ocean - I heard about you guys on my company, ThoughtWorks Brazil, and I have to say that a lot of people got interested there too :)

    Another vote for west coast! Something in SoCal maybe...

  • Jools commented
    September 11, 2018 19:25

    +1 for Australia!

  • Moisey Uretsky commented
    September 11, 2018 19:25

    As soon as we launch our next DC location and finalize the roll-out process we will most likely open up voting for various datacenter locations directly to our customers so they can just tell us where they want the next POP to be.

    Thanks

  • Christian Pekeler commented

    My vote is that you go for Australia first.

  • Junior Grossi commented
    September 11, 2018 19:25

    Will be great a data center located in Latin America. A lot of customers here and that will decrease latency.

  • Moisey Uretsky commented
    September 11, 2018 19:25

    Singapore is a location we will be investigating.

    Thanks

    Australia! I will definitely switch over from my expensive EC2 platform in favour of DO if you guys provide your current pricing in Aus!

    Hi Moisey Uretsky,

    I think Portugal should be a possibility for Digital Ocean because it has a good connection with Africa (and with Spain).

    After you have Portugal and Brasil you have everything to grow in the portuguese market (more than 200 million speakers in Brasil, Angola, Portugal, Cabo Verde and Moçambique).

    I'd definitely throw my vote(s) in for UK and West Coast. We have clients that would absolutely love it if we could provide them with these options, though we've yet to find a provider reliable enough on the West Coast and the UK has been iffy.

    Singapore is a great locations for South East Asia! Can't wait!

  • Moisey Uretsky commented
    September 11, 2018 19:25

    Our list right now that we are looking into:

    West Coast (US)
    UK
    Canada
    Brazil
    Asia (Singapore)

    I would be thrilled if you offered an Australian location.
    But you should at least have west coast USA.
