    We will be adding separate storage solutions for that but not on the droplet level.

    So it'll never be possible to dynamically change the size of the harddrive? (I can't just pay more for that?)

    Again not possible because we've already sized the virtual machines based on the best cost to price ratio for the customer.

    So you could have this but you would end up paying 2x-3x more for the VM.

    How about a resizing option that would create a new vm with the request properties and migrate the disk image?
    That would be pretty awesome.

    Unfortunately we can not accomodate this request because the virtual servers reside on a physical hypervisor and if there were individual controls over resources hypervisors would be ineffectively utilized.

    Thanks
