DigitalOcean Droplets are Linux-based virtual machines (VMs) that run on top of virtualized hardware. Each Droplet you create is a new server you can use, either standalone or as part of a larger, cloud-based infrastructure.
The Fedora 39 (
fedora-39-x64) base image is now available in the control panel and via the API.
Ubuntu 23.10 (
ubuntu-23-10-x64) base image is now available in the control panel and via the API.
Backups now remain available for four weeks even if the associated Droplet is deleted. Previously, deleting a Droplet would also delete its backups.
For more information, see all Droplets release notes.
