Download snapshot and/or backup
It would be great if we could download a snapshot. I would use snapshot to replicate development environment on my local computer, I believe many others will do the same. Thanks
No Downtime in Resizing
We can resize our droplet by just shutting down it , but it will more exiting if we can resize our droplet without shutting down.
I think it would be nice to be able to add notes to a droplet. For example, if I manually upgrade from Ubuntu 11.04 to 11.10, I would like to have that note in there so I remember next time it comes to upgrade. Or perhaps to notate changes in progress on the droplet, that sort of thing.
Custom metrics for alerting
Would love it if support for custom metrics could be added for the monitoring/alerting announced today. For example, things like: User signups Emails sent 200/4xx/5xx rates UX RUM metrics The droplets would have to supply the metrics, but once ingested, the monitoring framework could supply visualization & alerting.
Add webhooks to monitoring
It would be great if the new monitoring service also had webhooks. This would make it significantly easier for our orchestration service to respond to events and take action.
Add web hooks for monitoring alerts
At the moment, monitoring alerts can only be sent via email or Slack.It 'd be super nice to be able to set up web hooks for alerts. :)
Publish your capacity issues
We were unpleasantly surprised by a capacity issue in Amsterdam yesterday, which is still ongoing. You can't create any new instances in this zone. In our business model, it is essential that we can continue to scale upwards on demand. I belive that's one of the main reasons for anybody to choose a cloud provider over handling your own servers. I contacted support and got the following answer: "Unfortunately we do not currently have an ETA on the additional capacity in Amsterdam. Please check back in a few days." I can live with this right now, because we're still in beta and our users might tolerate an answer like "We do not currently have an ETA on getting our site back online. Please check back in a few days." But if this happens after launch, it will severely hurt our business. To my surprise, this issue is not published anywhere, not on blog.digitalocean.com , not on digitaloceanstatus.com . I asked why, and got the answer "Because it's not a network impacting event. It's a capacity issue and we don't put capacity issues online". I feel that this is a very serious issue, but from the answers I get I get the impression that Digital Ocean does not agree. In that case, we'll forced to find another provider in order not to jeopardize our business. And that would be sad, because we would really prefer to stay with DO, which we've been very satisfied with so far. Would you please publish such issues and let us know what you're doing to fix it and give an ETA?
