Mostly responding to counter the previous claims of numerous system crashes.

First of all, the plan prices listed on here are totally wrong. The smallest plan (~$20 a month) is for a 512.

Through personal hobby, work and freelance jobs, I've worked with and managed a variety of sites on a myriad of shared/VPS/dedicated hosts. I'd have to say that Linode rises above all of the others. Performance is great, they offer a ton of features, and they're quick to respond to tickets.

I've had bad hosts that went down constantly, and I've had good hosts that went down once in a while. I've never had any host (even giants like Rackspace and MT) be issue free. Stuff happens at the datacenter, stuff happens at ISPs, stuff happens at places that will disrupt your service. I'd say contant crashes at the level of the other reviewer are a personal issue of not knowing how to manage your system.

It's an unmanaged service. Linode support only handles issues on the host level. If you know [read more...]

I've been with them going on 3 years now and they are excellent. I've tried a number of hosting providers and VPS providers which do not come close to Linode. Linode is the next best thing (in many cases better) to having your own hardware in a colo. If you're looking for easy click install fully managed provider you're out of luck. They provide the environment with very easy tools to create your VPS, but the OS, Apps and security is your responsibleness. This gives you full flexibility and power. I boot strapped a complete Gentoo system and I'm happy as a clam.

They have great support, very reliable and a very stable environment. The support forums are also excellent and a great source of information.

I can't recommend them enough!

Linode celebrates 12th birthday by adopting KVM and boosting cloud server performance by 300% - Linode, a leading cloud-hosting provider, celebrated its 12th birthday today by announcing the availability of KVM-powered Linodes. The free upgrade significantly accelerates server performance, accommodates alternate operating system, and improves boot times.
KVM (in tandem with QEMU) is an alternative to the popular Xen virtualization software that Linode has been using since 2008. KVM has far less overhead, thereby improving virtual machine performance. For example, a 2GB Xen Linode yielded UnixBench scores of 800 compared to a 2GB KVM Linode that yielded scores exceeding 2400, a three-fold performance improvement.
“We invest huge amounts of money in quality hardware, including high end processors,” said Linode’s founder/CEO Christopher S. Aker. “KVM’s low overhead allows us to optimize our investment and give our customers the benefit of its fantastic performance.”
Adrian Flitcroft, founder of PlushForums, an award-winning forum solution, has been participating in the ... [search all linode.com news]

Linode Sucks (linodesucks@l...)

Linode is the worst VPS provider in the land folks and that is no joke. I have two of their systems and one crashes like ever other 2 days and the other just restarts by itself after having no real activity on it. The support is far from what people claim it is. You often get token answers and ALL OF THEIR KERNELS SUCK BAD.

I'm just so surprised that no on is really speaking out about it and I have noticed that Linode shuffles around the forum posts where people complain and the thread gets REALLY long in the Suggestion/Success stories section of the forum. Stay away if you want to do something more than just run a webserver. If the webserver needs to be on a system that needs to be up 24/7 go elsewhere because it wont be long before you are out in the code wondering what happened.

The newest Newark data center sucks the worst. Linode should have stopped at the West Coast because everywhere else in between is horrible. Atlanta data center sucks, Texas does also.
