We performed a comparison between Linode and Rancher Labs based on real PeerSpot user reviews.Find out what your peers are saying about Microsoft, Amazon, Linode and others in Infrastructure as a Service Clouds (IaaS).
"The most valuable feature is the domain settings page."
"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 virtual machine configuration tool is very helpful for setting up a new server or for modifying an existing server."
"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."
"Generally speaking, I have not found any faults using Linode. For what we wanted, they provided a complete solution."
"The solution integrates easily."
"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."
"It is also important that Linode offers worldwide coverage via multiple data centers. The ability to deploy on multiple servers, worldwide, allows us to have distributed services and failover and redundancy."
"The scalability potential is very good."
"The solution is stable."
"The solution has a lot of good features, such as you can access the console and edit through the GUI. The dashboard and the UI are designed well, user-friendly, and easy to manage, and access."
"A great UI with very good integrations."
"The initial setup is simple and straightforward."
"This solution is not vendor-locked, which means that we we are able to use it across all of our resources; this feature is of great value to us."
"They don't have role-based access control, which is problematic for us."
"It would be helpful if they offered a service where they handle the Linux security."
"It would be nice if they had more data centers in Latin America."
"It's not really an issue with Linode itself but upgrading Linux major versions can be challenging. It would be be fantastic if Linode developed a way to ease transitioning to a major new Linux upgrade."
"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."
"I've had some difficulties with some of their IP addresses being banned by certain mail servers."
"Right now, they don't have multiple data centers. They have limited data centers. I am currently using the Singapore and Mumbai data centers, but I am looking for data centers in Southeast Asia, the Middle East, and Africa. They need to improve the availability of their data centers and partnership engagements with cloud Panda solution providers, like us."
"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."
"We'd like their monitoring tool to be integrated by default."
"We're looking for something that is even easier to use. It's a bit complicated."
"The solution could improve by adding more features in the dashboard, such as monitoring, scanning, and security. This would be a great benefit."
"We have found that the auto-secure feature of this solution doesn't always work, and could be improved to be more reliable, particularly when working with business critical applications."
"Could be more intuitive."
