As a concerned developer, I would enjoy the peace of mind using DO’s convenient DNS services (which I do currently use), as well as using a DigitalOcean load balancer to migitate any minor DDoS thrown my way. On top of this, it would be nice if Load balancers could use (for an extra fee) DigitalOceans global data centers to provide latency-based connections, automatically choosing a droplet/kuber cluster from a provided list (or possibly a given tag) based on a weighted round robin or latency based approach.
I propose that DO Add three features to load balancers:
- DDoS Alert: Alerting users when a potential DDoS is detected
- DDoS Migitate: Perform basic scrubbing/rate limiting/bandwidth limiting in the event of a DDoS (this is an extra fee, and can be turned on by DDoS Alert or the user). I do not need Cloudflare’s advanced scrubbing, just a basic solution :)
- Global routing: given a tag and/or list of droplets/clusters, automatically connect a user to the closest server, through Weighted Round Robin or otherwise.
