Question

how to transfer one droplet all data to another droplet

I am a digital ocean user and I have a 5 USD droplet as my business start running well, I wanted to move to a higher droplet. I read many reviews online and found that “Premium AMD with NVMe SSD” is a good one after I decided to upgrade to this one. I found out I can’t resize my droplet to Premium AMD it can only be upgraded to “Premium Intel” so is there is any way I can save my droplet data and move it to my new Premium AMD droplet.

I have 5 to 6 nginx python apps so it’s a lot of work is there any easy way that I am not aware of

Hello, @adityadevservice

You can create a snapshot of your current droplet and then spin up a premium droplet using the snapshot.

To migrate a Droplet using snapshots, you should:

  1. Create a snapshot of a Droplet.

  2. Optionally, move the snapshot to a new region if you want to migrate your Droplet to a new region or transfer the snapshot to a new account) if you want to migrate your Droplet to a new account.

  3. Create a new Droplet from the snapshot in the desired region or from the desired account.

You can check the full process listed in our tutorial:
