    Finally! Linode is now offering SSD's (not a hybrid solution as was expected) – and they've even doubled RAM!

    Linode doesn't have a 512MB or 1GB option but their plans (2GB +) are now offering more for your money than DigitalOcean!

    There's more news, too: mobile responsive design, 40Gbps network connectivity, upgraded processors and hourly billing (launched last week).

    The only thing I'm waiting is when they accept paypal payments :)

    Update: there's rumours of a $10/month 1GB plan coming soon.

    Linode have stated they aren't looking to offer PayPal in the near future :(.

    sweet a $10/month plan would be nice..

    Someone on our fav LEMP stack already started benchmarking DigitalOcean vs Linode VPS plans https://blog.centminmod.com/346. Linode definitely have the faster VPS setups if you require higher end plans.

    The Centmin Mod CLI Install benchmark times:
    • DigitalOcean 2GB VPS (2 cores) = Install Time: 1361.410512372 seconds
    • DigitalOcean 4GB VPS (2 cores) = Install Time: 1399.195370295 seconds
    • DigitalOcean 8GB VPS (4 cores) = Install Time: 1345.712748882 seconds
    • DigitalOcean 16GB VPS (8 cores) = Install Time: 1029.784321412 seconds
    • Linode 2GB VPS (2 cores) = Install Time: 1775.994987934 seconds
    • Linode 4GB VPS (4 cores) = Install Time: 951.771001711 seconds
    • Linode 8GB VPS (6 cores) = Install Time: 962.287260593 seconds
    • Linode 16GB VPS (8 cores) = Install Time: 921.727023983 seconds

    I don't feel as if a comparison is wise yet, simply due to everyone migrating to the newer nodes and everyone running benchmarks left right and centre.

    Thats hefty, but I'm sure it is worth it to some. I grabbed the $10 plan to check it out but will probably stay with wiredtree at least for the time being.

    I love WiredTree for a managed provider and/or if you need cPanel. I do think Linode is the best unmanaged VPS provider out there right now, though.
