Overall Satisfaction with Linode

We use Linode to run, host, and serve our applications across the whole organization in targeted regions without having to have our own infrastructure.
  • Reliable
  • Simple
  • Choice of OS
  • Fast
  • Reasonably priced
  • Control
  • No out-of-the-box support for FreeBSD as an OS
  • OS images are not hardened, need security configuration manually
  • Excellent return on investment due to very reasonable and simple pricing
Red Hat OpenShift was the first product I used and it was fantastic--until they changed to a container model and kicked everyone of the previous model. From there I moved to Linode and haven't looked back. You have much more control but it does mean you need to keep on top of a lot of things.
I have never had to contact support; the articles and documentation have always been enough for me to resolve everything myself.
Linode's affordable and simple price structure has allowed us to get our products running and making income with a small initial investment. As the products grow, the infrastructure can also easily grow. I think it is a brilliant service.
Our products are in the Tokyo2 data center; I have never had any unforeseen downtime. The reliability has been second to none.
I find services like AWS torture to use, and so absolutely and unnecessarily complicated. Linode is a much simpler alternative with a much simpler pricing and usage model. I like the control over my own servers, the choice of OS, and the excellent features Linode provides.
