When will a CentOS 8 image be available for deployment on DigitalOcean Droplets?

Posted October 13, 2019 4.6k views


So I’m currently running CentOS 7 on my production Droplet, and I would like to create a CentOS 8 Droplet ASAP for testing purposes. When creating a new Droplet at any location, the CentOS 8 image is NOT available (I only see CentOS 7.6).

Thank you.

Vultr has has CentOS 8 for at least a month now. I can’t see how they’ve been able to figure out how to deploy it in production but DO hasn’t :-/

Seems like they don’t care for us paying customers…Debian & Ubuntu get more support than an Enterprise-grade OS…

…What a place this is

Hmm, I cant find CentOS 8 or Streams. Someone said Vultr has it, looks interesting. I shall sign up and try it out

It appears that CentOS 8 cloud images have finally shown up on

Hello, @janvitos

There was already such a discussion in this community question:

I will quote the reply from @sjmacjunkie
“I opened a support ticket and they said pending CentOS releasing a cloud image for CentOS 8”

I hope it helps.

Good afternoon. Two months have passed, are there any changes?

Linode also has it. Any progress here?
