Storage

Store and quickly access any amount of data reliably in the cloud. DigitalOcean offers several kinds of storage depending on your needs.

Block storage volumes are network-based block devices that provide additional data storage for Droplets.
Spaces is an S3-compatible object storage service that lets you store and serve large amounts of data. The free, built-in Spaces CDN minimizes page load times, improves performance, and reduces bandwidth and infrastructure costs.

Latest Updates

14 July 2022

  • Spaces and the Spaces CDN now support HTTP/2 clients. HTTP/2-conformant clients now receive HTTP/2 responses, while others receive HTTP/1.1 responses. In certain cases, such as when an HTTP/2 request has a formatting error, it may downgrade to HTTP/1.1 for operational reasons, as permitted by the HTTP/2 specification.

12 July 2022

  • Newly-created volumes in NYC1, NYC3, SFO2, SFO3, FRA1, SGP1, LON1, and AMS3 are now on NVMe-based storage. Most existing volumes and volumes in BLR1 and TOR1 remain on SSD-based storage. We’re continuing to roll out NVMe across all volumes in all regions. In the interim, you can migrate volumes using rsync or similar tools to copy data.

27 June 2022

  • In order to improve security, DigitalOcean no longer accepts TLS 1.0 and TLS 1.1 connections. This includes connections to www.digitalocean.com, cloud.digitalocean.com, and api.digitalocean.com.
