"This solution is easy to understand and easy to configure."
"It will take the blow rather than our applications should an attack occur."
"Cloudflare is simple to use."
"The simplicity by which you can handle your inventory is one of the things I like the most."
"The most valuable feature is the static IP address, which has been very helpful for being able to log into the same address over the course of more than a decade."
"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."
"The most valuable feature is that they are flexible and easy to get ahold of if I need something."
"They have a very nice web interface to allow you to manage and reorganize your server."
"The number one thing we like about Linode isn't necessarily a service, it's their support. We've found their support to be absolutely fantastic. They've been so outstanding with their support. Every single time we call them and we ask for advice or help, they go above and beyond and it's really made us appreciate what they do."
"Service availability is the most valuable feature. It gives every user 100 percent uptime."
"The most valuable feature is the domain settings page."
"Our customers no longer use Cloudflare because its service is subpar."
"Lacks a VPN feature to provide a secure connection to the data center."
"The initial onboarding was causing us some confusion."
"It would be helpful if they offered a service where they handle the Linux security."
"One thing that I'd really like to see is auto-scaling node pools for their Kubernetes. I don't think that they have that. That's a huge one and would be very helpful. Specifically, what I would like is auto-scaling node pools that would scale down to zero nodes, which is tricky. That's very important for certain use cases."
"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."
"They don't have role-based access control, which is problematic for us."
"The network between different servers isn't very good. I have to install additional solutions to link the servers with each other."
"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."
"They recently changed the web interface and although the older one did not look as good, the new one is less responsive."
"I've had some difficulties with some of their IP addresses being banned by certain mail servers."
