Development and systems Q&A
by Justin Ellingwood
I suggest the possibility of using private IP addresses (as in addresses from one's own Autonomous System IP range) in DigitalOcean droplets, by establishing a BGP session with DO's routers.
Without this feature, or something like it, the DigitalOcean VPC offering is completely useless to me.
There's no way to intentionally move pirvate IPs around if/when hosts fail? Are you kidding? this a very common practice in managing clustered services.
I'm forced to send all traffic over public ipv4 and rely on firewalls for security, and use a public floating IP managed by automated scripts. But none of this traffic is really appropriate for public internet - and I'd rather not pay for the bandwith - these are all backend database services. Its just a silly setup and makes me long for better hosting privders.
I would love to bring my own IP space to DO. Similar providers are allowing BGP sessions and it would be a great feature.
