Overall Satisfaction with Linode

This is one platform to manage and monitor all Linux servers across our organization. It makes a single pane of glass a reality and gives us peace of mind. I like that the VPS allows more flexibility than some of the big guys for the public cloud. We use this to solve scalable and easy to deploy workloads for our dev team.
  • Customer service
  • Deployment
  • Scalability
  • More detailed walkthroughs
  • More easy to to plan downtime and maintenance
  • Gives users more status updates on health
  • Manageability
  • Costs of monthly bill
  • Reliable infra
It goes a long way to have customer service and gives us instant feedback where we missed a step or are stuck on something. This helps our team be more agile and faster deployments which lead to happier clients. This cycle has helped us stay ahead of the competition. 1st rate!
It is a single pane of glass and gives us low-cost and easy way to scale as we go and gives us flexibility in our spend budget. Our accounting team loves the billing and easy attribution to our dev and production workloads. We have used other cloud vendors and they don't come close on costs.
Uptime is very important and necessary to keep our production systems running smoothly. We make every effort to monitor and perform pre-emptive maintenance on our servers. Linode helps us by scheduling and being notified of infra changes that will affect our production workloads. We rely on these alerts to plan and manage our infra teams.

Do you think Linode delivers good value for the price?


Are you happy with Linode's feature set?


Did Linode live up to sales and marketing promises?


Did implementation of Linode go as expected?


Would you buy Linode again?


Linode is well suited if you are a Linux shop and if you are not I would recommend going elsewhere. If you are looking for a lower budget option this is also a good fit. If you are not familiar with runbooks and Linux deploys you will want to go elsewhere.
