About Linode

Linode is a cloud computing service provider that offers virtual machines, Kubernetes, storage, and other cloud computing services. It was founded in 2003 and is now part of Akamai.

Linode offers a variety of plans for different needs, including dedicated CPU plans, shared CPU plans, high memory plans, and GPU plans. Their pricing is predictable and consistent across all data centers. They also offer a 7-day money-back guarantee.

Dedicated CPU plans are virtual machines for CPU-intensive applications. Shared CPU plans are virtual machines with balanced power and performance. High-memory plans are virtual machines optimized with dedicated cores for memory-intensive applications. GPU plans are dedicated virtual machines to speed up complex compute jobs with RTX 6000 GPUs.

Most plan types have dedicated CPU cores for maximum peak performance and competition-free resources, though the Shared CPU plan comes with shared CPU cores. You can see Linode’s guide on Choosing Between Shared and Dedicated CPUs (and Determining When to Upgrade) to learn more about the differences between shared and dedicated CPUs.

Developers trust Linode’s cloud computing services and offer security solutions to protect your entire ecosystem. They also have a one-click app marketplace to help you develop faster.
