Yes yes yes! Thanks heaps Linode, you guys are legends!!
The waiting is over. Thanks Linode.
Finally Singapore ready.
I’m already happy with Newark block storage.
the 1 GB plan will make a nice little mail server + git hosting.
btw any idea why Linode keep changing their naming scheme for example “Nanode 1GB” ?
Thank you Linode, finally in Singapore!
I notice that Atlanta is not on the list. Is Atlanta block storage not expected to happen at all or is it just the one last in line?
Hi Andrew – we are not planning on deploying Block Storage Volumes to Atlanta at this time.
When you launch Block Storage in India.
When this will be available in India?
Waiting for it…
Is there a reason Atlanta is being left out? Is your Atlanta facility not up to par with the others?
We don’t currently have a data center in India, but we are always looking for ways to improve our offerings. This blog is the best place to find info on any new plans and offerings.
We’re focused on other data centers, so for now, we have no plans to bring Block Storage to Atlanta.
I notice that Tokyo1 is not on the list.The Tokyo1 is special.
Right now, Canonical Announces the New Minimal Ubuntu OS (Ubuntu 16.04 and Ubuntu 18.04) for Public Clouds.
When Linode will release those cloud images.
While we don’t currently offer Minimal Ubuntu on our platform, it is something we are looking into. In the meantime, you can manually deploy it by converting their image to raw format and then using the dd tool in Finnix to copy the image onto your disk. This is similar to the steps listed in our “Custom Distribution” guide which can be found here: https://www.linode.com/docs/guides/install-a-custom-distribution-on-a-linode/
Although Vietnam is not on the list, Singapore is fine. Thanks Linode very much
Although Vietnam is not on the list, Singapore is fine. Thanks Linode
Some of us *are* paying for larger plans than we actually need, in Atlanta, due to the need for the disk space. I feel we are now paying higher price and not getting the same service as in other data centers.
I realize there might be technical reasons why a data center lags behind. It might be older, more expensive to upgrade, etc.
I share my Linode with a few friends, and *have* gotten the complaint that the service is too expensive.
Don’t get me wrong, I am a very happy Linode customer. But I feel that maybe you could do something to the plan prices in Atlanta when you’re not able to provide the extra services you can in other data centers?
Still waiting to be present in Vietnam
