"There are key things that are used for our enterprise customers, such as Lambda and DNS."
"New and innovative way to protect the client's data."
"The DDoS protection is the most valuable aspect of the solution."
"From what I've seen so far, there are no negatives to report as of yet"
"It's very user-friendly."
"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 fact that you can get a person on the phone has just been fantastic."
"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."
"The most valuable feature is the domain settings page."
"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."
"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."
"They have a very nice web interface to allow you to manage and reorganize your server."
"Technical support is lacking."
"There are some issues with the CDN services."
"Latencies are always a problem."
"Although I think it's quite good, it doesn't provide me with all the features I would expect to have if I were using Imperva."
"The solution could work at being less expensive. It costs a lot to use it."
"Because they are a smaller company, they do not have, for example, all of the ways for authentication that Amazon or Azure has."
"I don't know how all of their services work, but my understanding is that they're not offering the entry-level machine for someone who just wants to own their own web page."
"I would like to see more seamless integration with backup, although it's pretty easy to do."
"It would be helpful if they offered a service where they handle the Linux security."
"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."
"I've had some difficulties with some of their IP addresses being banned by certain mail servers."
"Before they changed the dashboard, I found some of the more granular options easier to find."
"It would be nice if they had more data centers in Latin America."
