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."
  • "The value for the price is really good."
  • "Pricing is very good and flexible, according to the resources required."
  • "Being that they are small, their prices are slightly higher than the large providers like Amazon if you compare raw computing power."

    Top Answer:Pricing-wise, I find it simple in that they give you a monthly fee, but they also charge it hourly. So, if you are using the service for a small part of the month, then you are only paying for that… more »

    Why use StackPath Object Storage?
    Frequent (hot) storage shouldn’t cost a lot. And once you’re paying for storage, we don’t believe you should pay AGAIN to access it. Welcome to StackPath’s Object Storage.

    Save Money
    50% cheaper than Amazon S3 or similar cloud storage providers.

    No Data Transfer Fees
    No charges for data transfer (egress) or API requests/calls.

    High Performance
    Better performance than cloud storage providers, even more so once paired with StackPath’s CDN or Edge Computing.

    Performance
    StackPath’s system architecture enables an average 6x faster performance relative to Cloud Storage Providers*. Especially when paired with our CDN or Edge Compute, this performance advantage means significantly faster time-to-first-byte speeds.

    S3-Compatible
    100% AWS S3 bit-compatible (same AWS API constructs for storage & identity management). No need to change your S3-compatible application.

    Superior TTFB
    Average time-to-first-byte (TTFB) performance of less than 15 ms; made even faster when paired with our CDN. This is significantly lower than others’ TTFB.

    Immediate Read Capability
    When you write an object to our buckets, it can be read immediately after. This is not always the case with Amazon S3 — a well-known issue for AWS developers.
