Linode

Cloud hosting platform for managing virtual private servers

About Linode

Linode is cloud hosting and server management software designed to help businesses handle cloud computing infrastructure and virtual private servers on a unified platform. It enables software developers to deploy custom applications and workflows, define network access rules, track the performance of applications, and monitor CPU or bandwidth usage.

Organizations can utilize Linode’s block storage capability to extend servers’ data storage capacity and schedule backups on a daily, weekly, or monthly basis. Features of Linode include data archiving, user control, data storage management, server monitoring, automated notifications, permission management, analytics, and more. Administrators can use the application to maintain multiple databases and automatically resolve issues in real-time.

Linode offers an API, which lets businesses integrate the system with several third-party platforms such as Terraform, Rancher, Ansible, and Pulumi. IT teams can utilize the object storage module to store a variety of encrypted and unstructured data such as photos, videos, documents, backup files, database dumps, logs, and more across multiple geographical locations.

Very reliable but cheap VPS hosting

Reviewed on 2020/09/29

I'm quite happy with them, did not really had any big issues or complaints in the last few years.

I'm quite happy with them, did not really had any big issues or complaints in the last few years.

Pros

It was fairly cheap for a decent server and they upgraded our small little server along the line keeping the old price. The support was also pretty good, quite fast and qualified.

Cons

The old UI was a bit ugly, the new one still lacked a few features like bill list, otherwise it was usable.

With Linode, you can upsize... AND DOWNSIZE!

I've had excellent experience with the product and with the customer service. I've been able to easily manage a large number of servers and easily rescue a few when the need arose. Linode gives you a lot of machine for your money, including a very generous monthly network transfer quota. Their pricing model is simple, easy to understand and very competitive.

Pros

Most all Virtual Cloud Server providers have a fast, reliable platform. Most let you start small and then upsize your sever as needed. Linode is the ONLY provider I've found that let's you also DOWNSIZE your server! That's huge since you're not stuck with a bigger server than you need in case you have to temporarily upsize. I also like the simplicity of Linode, compared to monstrosities like AWS or Azure. With Linode, you get in, get it done, and get out.

Cons

Linode offers additional block storage devices which is great, but unfortunately, it's not available yet in all of their data centers yet.
