Linode is particularly well suited for start-ups. Also, for geeks and open-source developers. Linode is highly cost-effective. If you just floated a small company and looking to optimize costs, and have a bunch of geeks, then Linode is pure love for you! You get full control over the server and can build everything you can dream of.
On the other side of things, Linode does not provide a lot of services like other cloud providers like AWS and GCP. So, if you are a large business or a corporation, Linode might not always be the best fit for you. Linode lacks core services like Managed Databases, Firewalls, CDN, App Platforms and more.
