Solid-State Drives/NVMe SSD

A solid-state disk is a high-performance plug-and-play storage device that contains no moving parts. SSD components include either DRAM or EEPROM memory boards, a memory bus board, a CPU, and a battery card.
Because they contain their own CPUs to manage data storage, they are a lot faster (18MBps for SCSI-II and 35 MBps for UltraWide SCSI interfaces) than conventional rotating hard disks; therefore, they produce the highest possible I/O rates.

DNS Management
99.99% Uptime SLA
Global Image Transfer
Private Networking
The Private networking enables Droplets to talk with other Droplets in the same datacenter, that traffic sent between Droplets across the private network will not count towards the bandwidth costs and used for database replication, file storage, and similar host to host communication.
IPv6 Support
IPv6 addresses are now available for Droplets in all of our regions, users can enable IPv6 during Droplet creation or on existing virtual servers without the need for a reboot. This will be the standard for all data center locations.
Simple API
All of the functionality that you find in web control panel will be made available via the API. Support all of the major virtual server actions, allowing you to build your own control interface. Try this!
