We’ve created the fastest and most convenient cloud technology to help you easily and more efficiently manage your infrastructure so you can get back to coding. We provide all of our users with high-performance SSD Hard Drives, a flexible API, and the ability to select the nearest data center location.
Private Networking enables Droplets to “talk” with other Droplets in the same datacenter. Traffic sent between Droplets across the private network will not count towards the bandwidth costs and can be used for database replication, file storage, and similar host to host communication.
Transfer a copy of your Droplet snapshot to all regions (Amsterdam, Toronto, San Francisco, New York, London, Frankfurt and Singapore). Once you have transferred your snapshot to all regions, you will be able to spin up your image snapshot in any region from the Droplet create page.
We have created a simple name spaced API that provides complete control over your virtual private servers. All of the functionality that you find in our web control panel will be made available via the API. Today we support all of the major virtual server actions, allowing you to build your own control interface.
