DO Ideas 2

Increase your default droplet storage to match or come close to Linode

I'm a very happy DO customer. I'd love to see you come close to or match Linode's updated storage allocations for their default plans:

You have been beating them, in every realm, though their new pricing now doubles the amount storage for a 4GB instance.

    Thanks for the feedback. Last week we launched Block Storage https://www.digitalocean.com/company/blog/block-storage-more-space-to-scale/ Which decouples storage from our droplets and allows customers to be more flexible in how they allocate resources. Currently block storage is available in SFO2 and NYC1, rolling out to FRA1 next, and from there to other datacenters. Thanks!

    Hi Jon,

    Thanks for the feedback. We're currently working on our block storage product, which will help solve storage needs for a lot of customers, and we'll review our included storage in the future, but we don't have plans for changing that right now.

    Best regards,
    Rafael
