I need to migrate several servers from Ubuntu 16 to v 20 and add several security and management packages. Can I build a “golden image” and clone it?

Hi @jpolacheck,

You should be able to use the custom images option. Custom images are Linux and Unix-like images you import to DigitalOcean. You can create Droplets based custom images, which lets you migrate and scale your workloads without spending time recreating your environment from scratch.

You can read more about it here:
