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.
