Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"The fact that you can get a person on the phone has just been fantastic.""The fact that you can do any Linux distribution is great. You can try out any Linux distribution, even some of the more obscure ones, and they are always keeping them up-to-date. As soon as a new distribution comes out, it is on the platform pretty much the same day, which I find really helpful.""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.""The virtual machine configuration tool is very helpful for setting up a new server or for modifying an existing server.""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.""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 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 simplicity by which you can handle your inventory is one of the things I like the most."

"Oracle Cloud is reasonably scalable - I'd rate it seven out of ten.""The most valuable feature of this solution is the Interface.""The most valuable feature is that it offers several adaptors.""The most valuable features are the manageability and the user interface.""The product gives you independence from hardware onsite, the setup is easy, and there is no need for hardware maintenance.""The pricing isn't too bad.""It is more secure and more controlled than an on-premises deployment.""What I like best about Oracle Cloud is that it is an all-in-one system for everything."

Cons
"The only improvement in this aspect of the service which I can think of is perhaps a pool of developers who could be hired for those cases where the need goes beyond the support offered.""I've had some difficulties with some of their IP addresses being banned by certain mail servers.""They are already working on the firewalls and VLANs, which need improvement, and are now in beta. I am on the beta program for the firewalls, but I can't use it yet because they are only in Mumbai and Australia, and I am not in those data centres. This is the one thing that I have been waiting for almost since the day that I joined them, so it is nice that they are doing that. The VLANs will be an improvement as well, and I am keen and waiting for that.""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.""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.""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.""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."

More Linode Cons →

"The solution could always be less expensive.""Oracle Cloud's price is very high.""They offer some basic services but the choice is not as rich as other cloud providers.""In the next release, I would like to see more automation.""Areas that need improvement are the pricing and the support.""The price of the subscription is too high and excludes some potential customers.""They could add more features.""Oracle Cloud could be improved with better third-party integrations."

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."

  • "Improvements can be made with respect to flexibility in the licensing model."
  • "The subscription is a pay-as-you-go model, with fees that are dependent on usage."
  • "The subscription cost is too high."
  • "We pay the subscription cost."
  • "The pricing is the best."
  • "Pricing needs to be improved."
  • "The price of the solution should be reduced to a price that people can afford."
