Hi Team,

Just wanted to know that is it possible to migrate existing DigitalOcean VM’s to AWS or GCP or any other Cloud platform.

Hi there @sagarpatil,

We do not have the native ability to migrate Droplets outside our platform.
Unfortunately, we also really don’t have any straightforward instructions on how to migrate a Droplet to a new host.

However, we do have a 3 part tutorial series which covers most of the things in terms of migrating a Linux server. Whilst this is not Droplet specific is should be a good starting point if you are ever needing to migrate hosts.

https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorial_series/how-to-migrate-to-a-new-linux-server

Hope that helps!
