Overall Satisfaction with Linode

We are a software development firm. We have couple of web based products, we use Linode as our infrastructure. We use Linode in almost all the department from development to quality assurance. Linode gives us the server platform with very reasonable price compare to other providers. And also their support service far beyond the expectation. Honestly we are getting AWS like support without any additional cost. Superb service I have ever got. We use Linode Linux-based servers and object storage.
  • Superb swift very supportive support service.
  • A solid infrastructure never fails.
  • Very economical.
  • Lot of features and services.
  • One stop solutions for all your cloud solutions.
  • Real time analytics for service we use.
  • IoT platform.
  • Cloud function.
  • MQTT brokers.
  • Chat server.
  • Video conferencing platform (like Zoom).
  • Video streaming platform (like Vimeo).
  • Since it is economical, the ROI is high always.
I have used DigitalOcean once, the price is quite the same but the support I am getting from Linode is more valuable than DigitalOcean.
I am always depending on human support, that is what I like about Linode.
I do not have idea of "total cost of ownership" but the value I am getting from Linode is more than I spend on Linode.
The uptime is utmost import for our business. Most of our clients are e-commerce web sites. So server uptime is very important. Our Linode instances have never been down.
Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2), Google Compute Engine, DigitalOcean
It is appropriate in any scenarios, because they have a lot of package to pick according to your requirements.
