Linode is a leading cloud-hosting provider founded in 2003. Today, the company boasts more than 350,000 customers worldwide with four data centers in the US as well as two others in Europe and Asia.
Subscribers can create a cloud server with Linode in under a minute for as low as $5 per month. Users can then dynamically scale their environments to meet business demands – paying for only what they use, with no long-term commitments.
Christopher S. Aker created Linode with the goal of offering developers powerful and reliable cloud servers at an affordable price. The system interface offers an intuitive control panel that users can replicate on a larger scale using the company’s simple API. The company’s platform also enables customers to fully customize their environments and choose from a menu of add-on features, such as system-metrics-reporting service Longview, backups and NodeBalancers, Managed Services and Professional Services.
