DigitalOcean provides a variety of images that you can use to create Droplets and Kubernetes clusters, like Linux distributions, container distributions, 1-Click Applications, and a container image registry.
In addition, you can take snapshots for on-demand disk images of Droplets and volumes, enable backups for automatic weekly Droplet images, and upload custom images to create Droplets with other operating systems or pre-packaged libraries. You can manage the images you create or upload to your account in the Images section of the control panel.
We have reenabled the creation of new resources in SFO2 for all customers.
The Ubuntu 22.10 distribution has reached end of life and is deprecated as of 20 July 2023:
The image will be removed from the control panel starting on 20 July 2023 but will remain accessible for Droplet creation via the API for 30 days after the initial deprecation. If you need to use Ubuntu 22.10 after the image has been fully deprecated, you can create Droplets from a snapshot of a Droplet with that version or from a custom image.
Ubuntu 18.04 has reached end of life. Per our image deprecation policy, this image is now only via the API. We will remove the Ubuntu 18.04 image from our platform in 30 days.
