Singapore location is great and works well. But for HA applications it would be nice to have another Asia datacenter...
You need to add a Tokyo DigitalOcean Tokyo datacenter. Laws in Japan insist on data being stored in country.
When will this happen?
Yeah agree Tokyo would be awesome!!!
Yes good to have japan datacenter
Tokyo please.Including with me 1100 people have demand for Japan,so Tokyo please!!!
Meanwhile, which existing DC has the least latencies to Tokyo?
+3 for this
Please add japan DC also :)
Servers in Japan would mean more custtomers from VPN services!
need japan datacenter
love japan datacenter
we need japan server!
While data transfer is blazing fast within Japan -- connectivity outside the country is nothing like North America, Europe, etc. That's why a local data center is crucial and Singapore won't suffice.
Tokyo means business guys!
+1 +1 +1
please , we highly require JP DC
Looking forward to Japan DC.
I Need Japan T^T
I do also hope to have a Japan datacenter in the future as well. :) huge requirment on my end
Looking forward to see DC in Japan! Network is fast even for countryside. You can setup DC in Hokkaido and get cold weather + large&cheap land + tasty sushi & sashimi & uni & much more :)
I like Digital Ocean and would prefer not to move to a competitor to have my content served faster in Japan.
Really looking forward to Japan datacenter.
Request from china, The Tokyo network is faster more than Singapore.
Please build a Tokyo datacenter.
Actually , im want go with DO , but they dont have vps in Japan , i will wait u DO for server in Japan , I taking temporary vps japan in vultr
i really want u open sever in japan , its will good more vultr
Support japan server
add a japanese national server location faster
Im would u can add a new server in japan because japan hav'e a full speed location of internet
Japan is a major communications hub in Asia (just check undersea cable maps) - so it would be a great location for you to open a data centre. I personally will make use of it for multiple droplets - I need it for a low latency application that needs high reliability for users inside Japan.
It would also make you more competitive with other large VPS providers that have a Japanese data centre.
It's crazy this hasn't been done yet... AWS is getting the marketshare in the meanwhile..
We need Japan since I want to have both my Digital Ocean and AWS Servers closer together
We need a Tokyo DC as soon as possible DO! This would be of huge benefit to Japan and East Asia.
Tokyo DC please!
Datacenter in Japan will gather customers from all over East Asia.
Tokyo DC please.
I currently run a large application on Linode since it needs to physically be located in Japan (to deal with local laws about handling and processing data). I would love to be able to switch to DO.
It would be nice if we can place server in Japan. :)
Would definitely like to see this in the near future
It will be nice if having data center in japan.
Japan is more faster when access from Asian
Really Need a Japan
Recently I became a fan of DO. I work for a datacenter company in Japan. So when you expand your business to Japan, I would definitely like you to use our datacenter. Please contact me if you have a chance. I am looking forward to hearing from you.Thank you.
we need tokyo server
Do this and you'll have world domination. +1!
(Singapore is not good enough)
Really Need a Japan or HK DC
Datacenter in Japan is very importan to asia users.
i need jp datacenter
please open Datacenter in Japan. we need it . we can't buy linode in japan now.
I need japan datacenter, from china connect better then linode.
jp + 10086
We need Tokyo instance.
i need jp datacenter
if you operate your jp datacenter,i'll move all my linode vps to digitalocean.
We need Tokyo instance.
A data center in Japan or Hong Kong, with fast connection to China mainland and other east Asia countries needed.
I'm sure the sales will grow fast based on the huge demand from China and other east Asia countries.The VPS sold out of linode's Tokyo data center is an example and strong proof of that..
We need Tokyo instance.
I really need this!
Not a customer, but a Tokyo Datacenter would help make me a customer faster.
I am located in Vietnam and there seem to be a connection problem to the Singapur datacenter with massive data loss. Ping is good, but data packages get lost just all the time. I cannot work efficiently here with digital ocean and provide any service to Vietnam with considerable speed. I hope a datacenter in Japan will fix this issue for me!
KDDI Tokyo Datacenter please!
Indonesia is one of the worst country in Asia on Copyright protection ......They have law but nobody execute it.Pirates are popular.I don't think digitalocean can undertake the corresponding responsibility for illegal activities again the DCMA!
So if digitalocean wants to build another Aisan datacenter,plz make it in Japan,or DO will receive subpoenas from U.S. courts again and again.
I would give +3 as my vote.
definitely would be nice.
+1 Please open DC in Tokyo, Japan.
+3 Definitely would be nice.
Please set up in Japan. I need it for china.
support, we need another option for asia datacenter
can i use this domain for http://www.boardresultnic.in
+1, want it.
I love Digital Ocean, but nowadays I consider to move Linode Japan server. I do not want to move, so PLEASE MAKE THE SERVER IN KOREA OR JAPAN! please....
Add a japan datacenter is important. It is not for japan local users. It is for the Chinese users. As you may know there is a lot of people in China who is in great need for uncensored Internet access, VPS is one of many ways to achieve that. Linode and Vultr has built Data center in Japan, Digital Ocean should also consider that.
Put it in Hawaii , Closest to Japan and still under US Law ;)
Linode has datacenter in Japan from 4 years ago.
That will be competition.
and in Japan, perhaps network transfer is expensive.
I would also like to voice my support for a datacenter in Japan.
The question is, how economically viable is setting up a datacenter in Japan.
There is at least three different target groups, existing members of Digital Ocean who would setup a droplet in the Japan region if available, people who have not joined Digital Ocean who might reconsider if Digital Ocean adds a datacenter there, and Japanese Citizens who do not browse English websites who might become a potential customer if such a service becomes available in their language.
The question is how big each group is and if it's significant enough to warrant the huge capital required to setup the datacenter.
Anyways +1 vote from me.
I want it.
i can't agree more
The speed to Toyko is faster than other places for Chinese customers. We all want Toyko datacenter.
SG node is very terrible for users in china,If DO have a tokyo node will be great!
SGP is the worst data center I have seen~~
in face, I have two vps vendor, one is DigitalOcean, The other one is dream.jp. Due to I really need a vps in tokyo.
KDDI or OAH is the best choice. SGP is the worst data center I have seen~~
tho i would rather have better networks in SGP (oh man i miss oah), a datacenter in Tokyo is definitely awesome... I wish do can consider it
support, So I can totally give up linode
> Setting up a data center is not like going to a store and buying a drink, there must be reliable data center providers, tier-1 bandwidth providers, etc.
We're talking Tokyo here...
Setting up a data center is not like going to a store and buying a drink, there must be reliable data center providers, tier-1 bandwidth providers, etc.
Moreover, Digital Ocean will also have to have some staff over there to manage the hyper-visors and ensure security.
All the other big players have their Tokyo data center, some have more than one. So why not DO?
I'm trying to build an app in Japan and I have to say, the lack of a Japan datacenter of any kind is the only thing really stopping me from using Digital Ocean. As long as there's a low (<30ms) latency to Tokyo I think most people would be fine with wherever you plop down a datacenter.
Still waiting for this
I came across the question of where to place the site better. Japanese and South African?Now JP posted in Singapore. Where to place ZA?Thanks for the help.
Japan Data Center Please
Agreed.Many Japanese users need this.However we need an extra step to filter spammers and actions against TOS users,much cares China.
You won't be notified about changes to this idea.
