The Fedora 37 (fedora-37-x64) base image is now available in the control panel and via the API. This quickstart helps you create snapshots of Droplets and Volumes you can save and access images on-demand.

The 3rd Gen of DigitalOcean Premium Droplets with AMD EPYCTM processors

The third generation AMD EPYCTM processors (code name Milan) are available in our Premium AMD Droplet plans. The new Droplets are powered by 3rd Gen AMD EPYCTM processors, superfast PCIe Gen 4 storage, and high-speed 100 GbE networking for top performance.

While customers can’t select their specific processors, many Premium AMD Droplets created in the SFO3, SGP1, FRA1, and NYC1 data centers already run on 3rd gen AMD EPYCTM processors as we continue to deploy them.
