    Between the CPU/BW and RAM upgrades, they're looking a bit more competitive now -- especially with the "amazing" support and service people say they offer.

    • So they finally updated their overloaded hardware?

      Finally. Primary reason I've never used them for a serious project in the past.

    • IshaqIshaq Member, Provider

      Price is increased by $0.05, I am disappointed >_>

    • Me too.I cannot afford the price increase .I will have to move ;)

    • LeeLee Member

      That extra $0.05 on the package price is paying for it all ;)

      It's better to keep your mouth shut and appear stupid than open it and remove all doubt

      Finally, it's profitable to load a VZ kernel on a linode and run a VPS company.

    • Linode 40G     40 GB   960 GB  20 TB   8 cores (40x priority)  $800 / mo

      Seems legit.

      @Shigawire said: Seems legit.

      Not really. You can get your own machine for less than that.

    • I think it would be great to still have one of those 512MB Linodes for like 10 bucks a month or something...that would make it really sweet but I guess that is just not the market Linode is interested in.

      Although I wish they do...20 bucks is just too much to be thrown to some outdated hardware...even with a really cool control panel and outstanding support (until you are DDOSed....)

      I even proposed that a year back, but caker said that just wasn't their market :) Fair enough.

      I recommend Prometeus, the best provider ever!

      whatever it is they are providing a very good service compared to some other companies (within same price range) and with the latest upgrades they didn't let us down. Thanks linode

      But still as someone suggested, it was nice to have 512 with 10 $ / month

    • Nice to see the big boys joining the race to the lowest price!

      They aren't...

    • @sleddog said:

      They definitely aren't. However, they are now about as expensive as some LEB providers here with their KVM offers (or even cheaper) at the full retail price. So they're definitely competitive again.

      This is what i meant. I was talking about cheap/realistic offers, not cheap/LEB offers :P

    • I know a lot of ppl bash Linode but let's face the fact, they have features a lot of other VPS companies don't have. Or they have it but it's just not that easy to use. Case in point, private networking. I've researched for many months to find a provider who can offer this. Many have said they can offer it but it isn't something that you can "control" without having the provider get involved. For someone who runs a high traffic site, the transparency to do a lot of the things Linode offers via their control panel is priceless.

      With that said, unfortunately I will be moving off Linode before the end of the month. Why? I can't afford to pay what they're asking. Until my SaaS app takes off and generates money, I'm sticking to LEB. Luckily I found a provider who offers private networking. Bottom line, people love to Bash Linode but honestly, who else would you go with considering the features they're offering. I know it's not for everyone but I'll go with Linode before I head over to AWS.

      I still had some credit available from their $100 give away, so fired up a 1GB instance today and moved my busy site over.

      It's faster than ever before, access to 8 cores and 1GB memory - nginx + php-fpm is flying!

      Not bashing but I think BuyVM offers private networking since a long time ago.

      Yup - they do, both locations.

      Made having a backup box in the same location quite easy. That backup box rsynced off-network. Saved a lot of bandwidth.

    • I am just happy
      And waiting for the [email protected]

      Someone please lists LEB providers that support private networking :D (BuyVM, i know, dont need to mention again :p)

      Gapps legacy 100/200 users cheap 4 sale. PM

    • @Kris said: Yup - they do, both locations.

      True, BuyVM is an exception here. I think it's mostly due to the panel. Both BuyVM and Linode have custom panels. The rest is mostly stuck with SolusVM, which is a nightmare compared to Linode's panel, and thus probably limited in what functionality they can offer.

      I recommend Prometeus, the best provider ever!

    • @yomero said: And waiting for the [email protected]

      open a support ticket and ask politely to move. that works :)

      Stallion's login page is nice, the rest isn't bad and is probably better than Solus but it's still a far cry from Linode's. Linode's service was exceptional for me when I still have one last year (I can't comment on their policies on DDOSes as I've never been DDOSed myself). If it's not for the price I would have stayed with them.

      Interesting
      I will try after I finish some work and move my project to production, hopefully in some days

    • lbftlbft Member

      Linode's Lassie is clearly inferior to Dewlance's AutoBoot.

      Linode just gives you a /56 when you ask for it. I've haven't been able to get more IPv6 from BuyVM (believe me, I've tried and gave up) with the excuse that the panel doesn't handle it easily (and neither does Solus). Also, Linode (almost) always has stock, does easy migrations and has more locations. No offence to BuyVM, I still love them :) But since we're comparing... I might as well be honest.

      I recommend Prometeus, the best provider ever!

    • Yay, I just upgraded.

    • Section 4 of the BuyVM AUP would make me concerned about the privacy of any private networking.

    • lbftlbft Member

      You should be aware that BuyVM's internal network, like most providers that have internal networks (including Linode, as far as I'm aware, and definitely AWS) is open to all clients in that datacentre - not just between your own servers. A private network gives you speed and doesn't eat your bandwidth, but it usually doesn't offer security (which makes me worry when people are dopey enough to have services open to the internal network with no authentication.)

      False, is the provider has their own networking gear (a router and switches), like BuyVM has their internal network is isolated from the rest of the DC.

      I sitll wouldn't run anything unauthenticated on the internal network though.

      Can't see this being an issue? Got a ticket ID for me?

      Remember, our private LAN isn't just between KVM's like anyone using Solus. Our OpenVZ's fully support the private LAN as well as proper bandwidth accounting in regards to it.

      Yes, stallion 1 is ugly and yes we're over a year behind on stallion 2, but I've been making a lot of solid progress on 2 and have posted a lot of screenshots as I progressed. I'd make a thread on here about it but I think it'd annoy people and would count as self promotion of sorts.

      IMO. they were always competitive in the market they serve. Now they are at the top of that market...

      Linode Upgrade/Migration: We are pleased to inform you that you VPS will be upgraded/migrated. Login to your control panel and click the upgrade/migrate link. Your Linode will be offline during the upgrade/migration (for about 1 minute per GB of storage used). The status of your upgrade/migration is visible in the control panel.

      LEB Upgrade/Migration: We are pleased to inform you that you VPS will be upgraded/migrated. Your VPS will be loaded on a truck and sent somewhere else. Your IP will be changed. Downtime will be several hours, though it might run into days. We might post updates occasionally on Twitter or Facebook. Good luck.

      When I said datacentre, I meant the colloquial sense of "<provider>'s stuff in the datacentre". Sorry for not being clearer.

      I wouldn't be annoyed... I've only seen the screenshots on the top providers LEB post, are there more? What kind of features should we expect? Are you guys going to change OVZ specs and/or pricing?

    • So what happened to Linode deploying the E5-2647's?

      Cause I just migrated and my nodes are on 2630L's

      More like a display of talent than self promotion.

    • @Francisco said: Can't see this being an issue? Got a ticket ID for me?

      Yes: 173177. I have to say though: the server I was requesting them for has been cancelled. Still, it struck me was weird. Thanks for looking at it anyway :)

      +1, lots of threads about new panel versions, new software versions, etc.

      Apparently the 2630Ls were around since some time ago.
      Maybe someone got one of the new E5s?

      My machines are still in these 2630Ls and L5630s
