Christopher S. Aker founded Linode in 2003 and now, with over 250,000 customers worldwide, the company continues to offer developers and business owners the highest-performance cloud servers available at an affordable price.
The company makes it easy for anyone to select a plan, platform distribution and datacenter, and launch a cloud server in under a minute. From there, customers can dynamically scale their environments to meet business demands â paying for only what they use, with no long-term commitments. The Onion and WP Engine are two notable enterprises that rely on Linode.
Linodeâs proven Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) platform enables customers to fully customize their environments from six data centers in the US, UK and Asia.
Subscribers also have the option to add managed services to any plan thereby putting Linode in charge of day-to-day node administration.
