Patching servers

How, and how often, does Render patch customer servers? Also, if Render does not patch running servers / services, when redeploying a service is the server patched/updated?

@ashwinsr I followed up with you privately but will answer here as well.

There are some factors that are updated automatically – for example, we automatically pull the latest LTS version of node. Other libraries or dependencies in our native environments are updated on an as-needed basis. In order take advantage of any patches, you would need to redeploy the service as we do not run patches on running servers.

Alternatively, if you wish to control your own environment and dependencies, you could deploy via Docker Deploy Docker — How to Use Docker | Render instead of using one of our native environments.
