We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"I very much like the support that you get, and I think that it's excellent.""Because of the way that their pricing model is set up, I can scale up or down the size of a customer's server very easily. It makes life very easy for me when they run out of space, need more speed or RAM, etc. I can very easily pay the difference and reboot the machine, and now I have the upgrade that I wanted. That just makes it extremely simple.""For small businesses and people who have some technical skills and are good with Linux command line, this solution is great. I love Linode because it is very fast. Whereas, the same configuration on Azure and AWS will be so slow. The best thing is that their pricing and speed are great.""It is also important that Linode offers worldwide coverage via multiple data centers. The ability to deploy on multiple servers, worldwide, allows us to have distributed services and failover and redundancy.""Service availability is the most valuable feature. It gives every user 100 percent uptime.""The creation of instances is very good, as is their interface which is not complex and is easy to use. With the dashboard it is easy to create a new instance and add your favorite things. You can add Debian, Ubuntu, or CentOS, or any flavor of operating system. You can select the RAM for your instance as well.""Generally speaking, I have not found any faults using Linode. For what we wanted, they provided a complete solution.""The most valuable feature is the domain settings page."

Cons
"It would be helpful if they offered a service where they handle the Linux security.""They could have more international servers. There are certain places throughout Europe and Eastern Europe which are very open to doing a lot of technology business, such as Romania. Romania is very open to technology. At other service providers, I have stuff in Romania. I think there are some Eastern European locations that would be more open to it. So, if they could have more European points of presence, that would be more helpful.""I would like Linode (without cluttering things) to provide some type of DevOps workflow where people are configuring their pipelines from running their tests and deploying to their test server. Once approved by clicking a button, it just gets deployed to production. I would like something like Azure DevOps, which we use for large applications, and would be something nice to have in Linode.""It would be helpful if they provided the additional Linux distributions that I prefer using. But there is still a workaround. I can do it without direct support. It's a bit more complicated, but it can still be done.""Right now, they don't have multiple data centers. They have limited data centers. I am currently using the Singapore and Mumbai data centers, but I am looking for data centers in Southeast Asia, the Middle East, and Africa. They need to improve the availability of their data centers and partnership engagements with cloud Panda solution providers, like us.""Everything is up-to-date for a small business. But for big business, they need to improve certain things. For example, there should be better security.""When it comes to marketing and exposure, Linode needs improvement because I just randomly found them by looking for Linux solutions.""The suitability of this solution depends on the features that you need. If you're an Uber-sized company then you're probably not going to want to start using Linode. If you are a large-sized organization then you're going to want to start using one of the bigger providers that gives you the scalability and the feature set that you are probably going to be needing in the future."

"The management features are pretty good, but they still have room for improvement."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"I pay just over £20 per month and have done so ever since I started eight years ago, which to me is good value.""The pricing model is very simple. I like the simplicity of it, starting at $5, then doubling as it goes up from there. That is a brilliant idea, and it is not complex at all. It is about as dead simple as you can imagine. So, if you want to double what you have, then you double your price, pay the money, and reboot. It is done. It's that simple. You can't beat that.""One key difference is that pricing is very hard to come by and to understand with all the bigger companies. Their pricing models are so weird and it's hard to figure out exactly how much I am going to pay for this kind of service. Everything is piecemeal. With Linode, it's simple and straightforward. You know exactly what you will have to pay at the end of the day.""Compared to other service providers, like AWS and Google, the cost of services are much less and more affordable. We are saving about 90 percent by going with Linode versus other cloud providers.""The pricing model is very simple. If you have very small applications, you can use the plan which costs $5 per month. That gives you 50 GB of memory and almost 1 GB of RAM. If you need more than you have to select the next plan which is $10 per month, which has about 70 GB of data and 2 GB of RAM.""When we started with the service, the cost was approximately €5 per month.""The value for the price is really good.""Pricing is very good and flexible, according to the resources required."

Questions from the Community
Top Answer: The ability to fire up a virtual machine, use it, and then kill it, is quite a valuable feature for me.
Top Answer: The monthly cost depends on your requirements. The pricing is absolutely spot on. I think whoever thought about how their pricing should work and how their sizing should work, clearly understands the… more »
Top Answer: Before they changed the dashboard, I found some of the more granular options easier to find. However, it was just a matter of getting used to the new interface.
