Linode Announced High-Memory Instances and $5 Linodes

On Valentine’s Day, Linode announced their first specialized instance family: High-Memory instances, and lowest priced instance: $5 linodes, along with a slight storage upgrade for $10 linodes.

Here is the details, first, let me show you what are High-Memory instances. High-memory instances are optimized for memory-intensive workloads like high-performance databases, in-memory caching, rendering and data processing. In other words, High-Memory instances come with more Memory, at least 16GB, which is $60 per month.

$5 is an amazing price, you will find several VPS providers have instances at $5 per month, such as Vultr and DigitalOcean. DigitalOcean’s $5 instance comes with 512MB of Memory and 20GB of SSD storage while Vultr’s $5 instance comes with 768MB of Memory and 15GB of SSD storage. Compared to them, Linode provides more resources, every $5 Linode instance comes with 1GB of Memory and 20GB of SSD storage.

Every Linode instance’s network out speed has been upgraded to 1000mbps at least, High-Memory instances even up to 10000mbps. Besides, $10 Linodes received extra 6GB of SSD, now they come with 30GB of SSD storage.

Linode upgrade their instances every year, the last upgrade was on their 13th birthday, June 16,2016.

If you are finding stable and powerful instances, Linode worth a try.

Hello, My Hosting Blog

This is the first post of this blog.

I’ve been thinking of start a blog talking about hosting for a long time. Now, here I am.

More than 10 years ago, I started to blogging and digging into servers, from Windows 2000 to 2003 to CentOS, and so on. In earlier times, we often bought shared hosting, that hundreds of customers share one server at the same time, which would cause bad-neighbor effects. But in nowadays, virtual private servers (VPS) are much more popular, with the help of development of information technology, VPS are getting cheaper and affordable, personal bloggers prefer powerful and flexible VPS than share hosting.

In this blog, I will share tutorials, hosting providers news, coupons and other aspects in related to hosting business with all of you.
