About Us

We love technology and helping our customers — we get excited about computers and we love programming. We live to solve problems, code software, and make cool stuff happen. And, we love to share our creations with others.

This has been our philosophy since Linode was launched in June of 2003 by founder Christopher S. Aker. Initial development took about 6 months. Linode was ahead of its time and helped define the cloud hosting industry, and continues to be a leader in virtualization hosting.

Linodians

Each team commits to the ideal mission: making Linode the best cloud-host out there.
We aim high - and we aim to have a rolling good time along the way.
