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
Add User Data validation to Droplet creation flow
When creating a Droplet via the Dashboard (or API?), add automatic validation of the User Data to help avoid situations where user needs to create Droplet multiple times due to errors when processing user data which fail silently and require an additional level of technical ability to investigate and resolve. Initial validation could be as simple as formatting of bash / cloud-init scripts as a simple indentation level mistake caused my user data script to fail countless times with not obvious reason why it wasn't being executed.
Backups Daily instead of Weekly
Automatic weekly backups seem a bit far between, daily backups would be better. Especially for droplets holding data.
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.
Custom Droplet Resources
An option for a customized droplet. Your pre-definded droplets are fantastic (we can spin them up instantly, on the same hand you can scale efficiently) BUT The ability to define custom resources for a droplet would be fantastic...if the price has to be higher that is fine.
Add ability to download graphs
I like the graphs feature which shows the bandwidth, CPU and Disk I/O for a period. I thought it would be nice if I could pass this information on to my client along with their monthly invoice. A simple "Download Graph image" button next to the graphs is all I'm asking for (which downloads a jpg or png to my hard drive).
Micro Droplets - Less Disk Space, More RAM - 1GB ram, 5-10gb disk, 1cpu - $2.50 or $5 for 2GB ram would be amazing
Choose your own backup interval
At the moment automatic backups are taken 'every few days' (I can't find how many days exactly, but I know it's way too many). I was having the following idea: Users pay 1$ per month to enable automatic backups Depending on their plan, they have a few slots available (you'll unlock additional slots by upgrading to a better plan) You can choose your own interval (twice a day, once a day, once a week) If you run out of slots, the oldest backup will be destroyed automatically to make space for a new backup This way everyone can choose their own interval but everyone will get and pay the same.
