Managing Director at Olive Professional Services Ltd
The ability to fire up a virtual machine, use it, and then kill it, is quite a valuable feature for me.

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.

They have a very nice web interface to allow you to manage and reorganize your server.

The most valuable feature is that they are flexible and easy to get ahold of if I need something.

When it comes to the Linode Kubernetes Engine and the amount of automation it provides, it's awesome, it's a game-changer. If a process randomly dies, it could take me a while to notice that it has died, if I haven't set up monitoring. With Kubernetes, it will just restart itself using Heartbeats.

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 virtual machine configuration tool is very helpful for setting up a new server or for modifying an existing server.

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.

Before they changed the dashboard, I found some of the more granular options easier to find.

I would like to see more seamless integration with backup, although it's pretty easy to do.

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.

Because they are a smaller company, they do not have, for example, all of the ways for authentication that Amazon or Azure has.

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.

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.

They recently changed the web interface and although the older one did not look as good, the new one is less responsive.

They could have more international servers. There are certain places throughout Europe and Eastern Europe which are very open to doing a lot of technology business, such as Romania. Romania is very open to technology. At other service providers, I have stuff in Romania. I think there are some Eastern European locations that would be more open to it. So, if they could have more European points of presence, that would be more helpful.

They don't have role-based access control, which is problematic for us.
