We are happy to announce we've added TATA to our mix of providers in Singapore 1 to help with the latency many have experienced.
We've also been directly peering with more area providers.
We are still re-tuning the datacenter for best performance and please open a ticket with support if you're finding higher than expected results.
We'll also be adding TATA to other datacenters in the coming months.

We are currently investigating the latency issue in our Singapore (SGP) region. As we receive more information we will update the status.
The latency issue impacting Singapore has been resolved. A large DDOS was directed at SGP1 from approximately 10am to 2pm EST. NTT and Telia worked with us to mitigate the attack. We can report that things are back to normal now.
We are happy to announce that we have joined AMS-IX and installed our first connection for the Amsterdam 2 Datacenter.
This connection will allow us to directly peer with the providers around Europe bypassing many congestion points that have created latency for some of the droplets.
For more information on AMS-IX, please visit http://www.ams-ix.net/
We are investigating reports of latency with our peering partners in SGP1.
We are still working with our peers in SGP1 to clear up latency issues currently being experience in that region and will update this status when we know more. Thank you for your understanding.
Telia and NTT were able to successfully mitigate the latency that has been impacting the Singapore datacenter all evening and things are back to normal now.
We are investigating reports of availability issues on digitalocean.com. No hypervisors or customer virtual servers should currently be affected by this attack.
We've resolved availability issues with digitalocean.com, work on Control Panel & API availability should be completed in 15 minutes.
We have resolved all availability issues and services are returning to normal.
We are currently looking in to reports of increased network latencies in both of our Amsterdam locations.
The latency is back to normal. We are currently working with our peers to locate where the latency originated from. At this time we know it wasn't all traffic and it came from somewhere on the internet backbones.
We are reporting consistent stable network activity from our peers. Our apologies for any inconvenience.
Telia has confirmed they had a large volume of traffic that caused some of their routers to become overloaded in the Amsterdam Area.
We are currently investigating an issue with our SFO data center and will update this status page as we gather more information. Thank you.
We have resolved this connectivity issue in our SFO data center.
We have Temporarily disabled creates in NYC2 as we investigate reports of create failures.
We have resolved the issue in NYC2 and creates are working normally.
We are currently investigating connectivity issues in our AMS1 region.
We have resolved the connectivity issues in AMS1 region. Our apologies for any inconvenience.
We disabled event processing in NYC1 temporarily
Events are re-enabled. Sorry for the inconvenience.
We received a large ddos directed at the San Francisco 1 Datacenter at approximately 11:00PM PST. Most racks quickly recovered and our networking staff was called in to mitigate the remaining traffic to the last 3 racks of hypervisors still under attack.
This issue was fully resolved at 11:40pm PST.
There is an on-going DDOS attack against digitalocean.com. No hypervisors or customer virtual servers should currently be affected by this attack.
The attack has been mitigated.

We will be upgrading to provide additional redundancy to our NYC2 data center network,
There will be a couple minutes of packet loss and some possible high latency during the maintenance window.
On October 21st 2013 we upgraded the network to our new high capacity design using Juniper hardware. We encountered a few issues which we worked with senior Juniper engineers to design a fix.
We have successfully rolled this fix out in our AMS2 and SFO1 region already and both upgrades went smoothly.
After this upgrade we will have a uniform network design across all regions with full redundancy.
If you have any questions or concerns, do not hesitate to contact support.
Data center and Networking Teams
We have completed all of the work and now monitoring for any problems. We do not expect any additional interruptions at this time.
We are comfortable that everything is operating correctly and closing this maintenance at this time.
Please don't hesitate to contact support if you are experiencing any issues.

We will be adding additional private peering with NTT to the Amsterdam 1 (AMS1) datacenter.
There will be some periods of higher latency and packet loss as routing converges to add in NTT to the provider mix.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact support.
DigitalOcean Networking Team
The rest of this maintenance has been canceled. The new circuits need to be repaired and will not be finished within the window.
We'll reschedule it in a couple days after we can verify the circuits are fully functional.

We will be updating the software on our core routers in the AMS2 data center.
You may experience some high latency while we re-route traffic to upgrade the core router. We have redundant core routers and one of them will be in service at all times.
If you have any questions, feel free to contact support.
DigitalOcean Networking Team.
We have completed this maintenance.

We will update and expand our network infrastructure to provide additional capacity and expansion of the SFO1 datacenter.
There will be several minutes of packet loss and high latency as we upgrade our peering and core routers. We will take our peering links out of service one at a time and then transition the rest of the network over to the new hardware.
Due to the popularity of this datacenter, it has grown to the size that our networking infrastructure cannot support more droplets or future features including IPv6. This upgrade will bring the datacenter into our high capacity design and enable it for IPv6.
We will reopen the datacenter for new droplets in the days following the upgrade.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact support.
DigitalOcean Datacenter and Network Teams
We are now monitoring the setup to ensure it's performing well. We do not expect any additional interruptions to droplets.
We have completed the network portion of our upgrade.
Over the next couple days we will be adding and opening up more capacity for droplets.
Networking and Datacenter teams.
We are currently investigating reports of Droplets being unreachable in SFO1.
We have resolved the networking issues and all Droplets should be reachable again.
We are currently experiencing an inbound denial of service attack to our nameservers. We are working on mitigating the attack, but during this time DNS resolution may be slow or intermittent.
The DDoS that we experienced is no longer effecting our network and our DNS has returned to normal. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
