    Cubby is great to just drop a file in and share it with another user

    Linode

    Linode is well suited for anyone who needs a great cloud performance and stability for an affordable price. Linode provides a simple-to-use cloud experience, while it ensures the best performance for an IaaS provider and a great uptime rate so you can have the best solution within the best cost-benefit rate.

    Cons

    Cubby (Discontinued)

    • Critical mass of users
    • It could be more recognized
    Miguel Angel Merino Vega | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Linode

    • The (new) 'create custom image' function needs a bit of work before it is useable.
    • New accounts have limited features until a support requested is made to turn specific ones on. It would be useful to have an account page that tells you what is disabled so unpleasant surprises are not had at the pointy end of a deadline.
    • Stackscripts would be better if it more info was transferred to the script. Eg the Linode Label given, plan requested, etc. But now I am just nit-picking

    I've been with them a long time. They provide me with the capabilities I need coupled with knowledgeable support that's not pay-for-extra.However, if I move to a non-Linux OS, the level of support by necessity will drop off. I can still ask questions about the infrastructure but I my ability to ask about OS features will decrease.

    It's pretty easy for me, but I preferred their old interface before it was called 'cloud' (not a computer science term.) The new interface looks easier but I had to ask for help for things I used to be able to find myself. If someone was new to it--without having used their old interface--it might be easier for them than it originally was for me.

    There is very little planned downtime. Whenever planned downtime is necessary I'm always given lots of advanced notice and an explanation that I can pass along to my users that they'll understand. I really appreciate that Linode appreciates my commitment to reliable service to my users. It shows that they believe they've been successful when I'm successful.

    Linode is an infrastructure provider issues related to performance are really on me. Linode provides a capable infrastructure and allows me to tailor performance of the services I provide to my customers to my specific situation. Linode allows me to implement "tweaks" that, from experience, I know will do the job with little risk without a whole bunch of static from idiot support 'droids who just get in the way ("this isn't supported at the present time").

    The support team of Linode is very reliable and always online. They offer both physical and technological virtual support when reached during problems. There is a responsive technical team that attends us when our applications are experiencing mechanical breakdowns. They have educated us on the effective and responsible handling of data and avoiding any avoidable risks.

    I wish it hadn't taken as many iterations as it did. Some of it is my own fault and some of it was related to limitations imposed on me by the programming environment I chose to use. All in all, I'd say I did a pretty good job. I'd stack my homegrown spam defenses up against anyone's!

    Cubby is especially new in the market and is contemplating its business focus. They have adapted what their predecessors have created and implemented significant improvements in safety, performance and availability.

    Linode

    Linode is a simpler solution than Azure Virtual Machines. Its low cost, predictable billing, is a win for clients and its dead-simple setup is easy to get up and running quickly without training, reading copious numbers of potentially out-of-date blog posts, or going through certification processes. Linode delivers a generic VM with a recent version of ubuntu within a few minutes of signup.

    Although I use only a fraction of their product offerings, the total set makes scalability an easy goal to shoot for. As I said, I have a few customers that use the services my Linode provides...and I like it that way. However, should I need to scale up, I can...without incurring any more cost than I need to.

    Return on Investment

    Cubby (Discontinued)

    • Has helped our team immensely in collaboration.
    • Flawless syncing, DirectSync, version control and other features are a big PLUS!
    • It's worth the investment and recommended for bigger teams as well.
    Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Linode

    • Linode can be spun up so fast it is easy to jump right in.
    • Linode gives true console access, which AWS does not! That means things like single user mode and disk repairs (if even necessary) are actually possible. You can treat your machine like a pet, not cattle, if you want.
    • Linode has a fantastic mechanism for creating snapshots easily and affordably, and without shutting down the system; it's nice to know that safety net (and it works, btw) is there.
