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

13 May 2022

  • Spaces no longer supports downgrading TLS connections to TLS 1.1 or using cipher suites with SHA1 or DHE. Spaces currently returns soft S3 error messages and will gradually transition to hard TLS errors over a 4-6 week period.

28 March 2022

  • Spaces no longer supports downgrading TLS connections to TLS 1.0, and will transition from returning soft S3 error messages to hard TLS errors over the next month.

  • Managed Let’s Encrypt certificates will begin using Elliptic Curve Digital Signature Algorithm (ECDSA) instead of RSA. ECDSA is equally secure and more computationally efficient than RSA. ECDSA certificates follow the shorter root chain and aren’t rooted using the DST Root CA X3 cross-sign which expired on 30 September 2021.

    As we roll out this change, new Let’s Encrypt certificates provisioned for DigitalOcean Load Balancers and Spaces will increasingly use ECDSA and existing certificiates secured with RSA will be secured with ECDSA upon auto-renewal. This change doesn’t require any action from DigitalOcean customers.
