Storage

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

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

28 October 2022

  • All Spaces rate limits have increased to double their previous amount. For a list of the current rate limits, see our Limits page.

7 October 2022

  • The IOPS and throughput limits for volumes are now 50% higher. For a list of the new limits by Droplet type, see our updated limits page. To reach the new limits, you must power cycle the Droplet with the attached volume or detach and reattach the volume.

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.
