Fedora 22 Now Swimming in DigitalOcean

DigitalOcean is a cloud provider that provides a one-click deployment of a Fedora Cloud instance to an all-SSD server in under a minute. After some quick work by the DigitalOcean and Fedora Cloud teams we are pleased to announce that you can now make it rain Fedora 22 droplets!

One significant change over previous Fedora droplets is that this is the first release to have support for managing your kernel internally. Meaning if you

dnf update kernel-core

and reboot then you’ll actually be running the kernel you updated to. Win!

Here are a couple more tips for Fedora 22 Droplets:

  • Like with other DigitalOcean images, you will log in with your ssh key as

    rather than the typical


    user that you may be familiar with when logging in to a Fedora cloud image.

  • Similar to Fedora 21, Fedora 22 also has SELinux enabled by default.
  • Fedora 22 should be available in all the newest datacenters in each region, but some legacy datacenters aren’t supported. If you have a problem you think is Fedora specific then drop us an email at cloud@lists.fedoraproject.org, ping us in

    on freenode, or visit the Fedora cloud trac to see if it is already being worked on.

Visit the DigitalOcean Fedora landing page and spin one up today!

Happy Developing!

    If I updated my droplet to Fedora 22 how can I manage my kernel internally?

    Confirmed: the kernel you install is the kernel you run. Beauty!
