I only have experience with their sister company, VPS Mart, but I have been extremely happy with them.
Under Management Features, it specifically says that they support 8.0. These use Kubernetes with Ubuntu 18.04 LTS and Docker, so they are essentially a fully managed VPS.
That’s all that I can think of at the moment.
