DigitalOcean provides a variety of images that you can use to create Droplets and Kubernetes clusters, like Linux and FreeBSD distributions, container distributions, 1-Click Applications, and a container image registry.
In addition, you can take snapshots for on-demand disk images of Droplets and volumes, enable backups for automatic weekly Droplet images, and upload custom images to create Droplets with other operating systems or pre-packaged libraries. You can manage the images you create or upload to your account in the Images section of the control panel.
