Well be very nice to have russia data-center.
The main reason for a Russian Location is that the Russian Federation law requires the providers of the services on its territory (to its citizens) to store the personal data of users on the servers located in Russian Federation. That is it. No servers – no business.
I like too, I think you will get a lot of new clients for DigitalOcean platform
Add Taiwan and Japan datacenter
Thank you for your services. They are really cool. Recently webmasters in Russia faced problems with renting hosting services abroad. Our government telecom regulator Roskomnadzor (Russian supervisor over communication services) banned several IP pools of abroad hosters. Several times I have tried to rent your VPS in Germany (closest country to Moscow) but they were not available from Russia without VPN. When you are webmaster it's serious problem when your site available for your users only via VPN. In Moscow we have realy great Tier-3 datacenters for example Dataspace.ru, Dataline (dtln.ru) but they are not able to provide such great services as you guys are. Could you please add Moscow in datacenter region option in create droplet request form?

No! No! -100000000! In no case!
DO не смогу зарабатывать на трафике в России, DO не смогут пройти роскомнадзор по качеству услуги и ЦОД, не смогу получить лицензию.Более того, они не смогут арендовать ничего в существующих ЦОД, так как ни в один не пустят иностранных граждан, им придётся строить свой.Всё это повлияет на стоимость!Не нужно открывать в России!
At least, PoP for the Spaces CDN would be nice
Are there any plans to build a data center in Russia?
It will the best! If DigitlOcean build data center in Russia - i will totally move all my servers on DigitalOcean! Really must have :)
Yeah, place your cloud at CROC TIER III FACILITY with 99.982% availability )) Ping time to Amsterdam is pretty promising? but, damn, you can improve it! Russia calling! )
I think it's useless idea, because Russian Federation has many law restrictions in the internet.
Could you describe to us the limitations?
I fully support the initiative.
Quality services praised by many friends.
Ping is also not bad.
But even less would be better.
New point within Russia, or at least closer to its borders, will allow you to bypass many of its competitors.
I emphasize, not necessarily to build data center in our country, if you have any limitations.
If you can do it elsewhere and Ping will be less, then you will succeed.
It will be so cool!
Сложно поверить, что обратят внимание. Слишком высоки риски.
You won't be notified about changes to this idea.
