Linode Sydney up for testing
Their flat bw pricing is one of the cheapest in [extortionist] Australia.
-- Announcement (from email):
Great news! You’re receiving early access to the Linode Sydney data center. This gives you the opportunity to test a new data center before it is widely available to customers and experience the difference when deploying your workloads closer to home.
You have been pre-enrolled and will be able to select “Sydney, Australia” in the list of available locations when creating a Linode from the Cloud Manager.
There are a few things to note about the data center during this early access period:
Block Storage is not currently supported in Sydney, but is coming soon! IP Failover or IPv6 /116 Pools are currently not supported If you want to test with an existing Linode, it’s best to clone it to Sydney At the end of the early-access period, your Linodes will stay in the Sydney data center You will be billed accordingly for any Linodes deployed in the Sydney data center
We’re here to help at any time. For technical issues, please open a support ticket. For general feedback, email us at [email protected]
We appreciate your support in launching our newest data center. It’s an exciting time at Linode and we’re glad you are a part of it!
