Linode Akamai Canada Toronto Shared CPU Cloud Instance Test and Review

We’re excited to test out the Linode Akamai Canada Toronto Shared vCPU VPS Server this time. This server is a great choice for workloads that require moderate power, as it offers a blend of strong performance, ample resources, and reasonable pricing.

The AMD EPYC 7501 32-Core Processor powers this server, which includes 2 CPU cores, 4 GB RAM, 80 GB storage, 40 Gbps network in, 4 Gbps network out, and 4 TB of traffic, in addition to 1 IPv4 and 1 IPv6 address.

With such a well-rounded set of resources, these Shared Instances are suitable for running a diverse range of cloud applications. From individual projects to corporate workloads, the Shared Instances can handle them all.

Conclusion

Linode distinguishes itself from other web hosts with 11 data center locations across the globe, including four in the USA (Atlanta, Dallas, Fremont, and Newark), one in the UK (London), one in Germany (Frankfurt), one in Canada (Toronto), one in India (Mumbai), one in Singapore (Singapore), one in Japan (Tokyo), and one in Australia (Sydney). For customers’ convenience, Linode provides a speed test for each location to assist them in deciding which server to use.

In contrast to other web hosts, Linode utilizes hourly billing, ensuring that customers pay only for what they use while hosting with them. Linode is an affordable option that provides powerful performance, quick and easy setup, top-notch hardware, a wide variety of server options, reasonably priced cloud-based products, and an extensive network of data centers worldwide.

However, the company charges extra for backups, and no domain registration services are available. Linode is not recommended for beginners, and they only offer a 7-day money-back guarantee, which some might consider restrictive.
