AMD with more that 8 CPU?

Hi, I would like to resize my droplet from 2CPU AMD to something more powerfull. I expect huge trafic and for this purpose I would like to have min 32CPU and I don’t see any option. It is true, that DigitalOcean offer max 8CPU AMD servers? I know, that I can switch to intel, but there is snapshot pain, … Thanks Martin Kubát

Hi @dingosaurus,

If you need to use more than 8CPUs for an AMD server, I’ll recommend contacting DigitalOcean’s support with your request. They might be able to assist while I’m not sure it will be possible to use 32CPUs.

If it’s not possible, then yes, you’ll need to use Snapshots to create a new Droplet and re-use the Snapshot to migrate your data to it.
