Overall Satisfaction with Linode

We use Linode to host all of our internal Linux-based systems as well as public-facing services such as our corporate website.
  • Ease of configuration.
  • Economical (especially bandwidth).
  • Predictable pricing.
  • More configuration options for storage (PIOPS, etc.).
  • Related services such as VPCs.
  • Predictable pricing.
  • Easy configuration.
  • Reliable.
Compared to the "big three" cloud providers, Linode does not have the enormous range of service offerings that they do. I would not attempt to build the next Instagram on Linode. But for companies that simply want a straight-forward cloud provider, they're definitely our favorite.
Every time we've had an issue, it's been addressed promptly and correctly.
For a business of our size that does not require a huge range of (very expensive) services, but really just needs some Linux instances spun up, Linode fits our requirements extremely well.
Linode has been superb in availability. We easily achieve 99.99% uptime on Linode instances.
For SME-class cloud infrastructure, it is hard to argue against Linode. They have highly predictable pricing, a reasonable range of instance types, and are quite economical.
