This post has been updated to reflect the completed upgrade of the Linode Atlanta Data Center. Updated: March 17, 2021.
In September 2020, we began work to upgrade our Atlanta data center. We’re excited to announce that these upgrades are complete and the upgraded Atlanta data center is available for all Linode customers, including new deployments in the region.
- 99 percent uptime SLA
- Power and cooling – N+1 Power and cooling
- Compliance – SOC 1 Type 2, SOC 2 Type 2, SOC 3, HIPAA, PCI, OIX-2, GBLA, FISMA
- 100 percent uptime DC SLA
- Power – 2N redundancy
- Cooling – N+1 redundancy
- Compliance – SOC 1 Type 2, SOC 2 Type 2, HIPAA, PCI-DSS, GDPR Privacy Shield, and SSAE-16/18
Resources deployed in Atlanta were supported during the upgrade, and customers were contacted via Linode Support tickets for any notifications or next steps. If you’re experiencing any issues with your Linodes in Atlanta, contact Support if you require assistance.
New and Prospective Customers
Updated (March 17, 2021) : The new Atlanta facility is available for new customers. Select “Atlanta” in the data center dropdown in Cloud Manager to create new resources.
Updated (9/2/2020) : New deployments in Atlanta will be unavailable for new customers until the facility upgrade is complete. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
this is AMAZING news !!!
DigitalOcean does not have a DC in the South of North America.
Vultr has Atlanta & Miami but they seem to always have very limited resources (specifically servers) available.
“add recent products to Atlanta” i hope this would mean “Block Storage” and upcoming Managed databases.
we typically see cloud providers competing with new products/services but putting the time and investment on the actual infrastructure gives me greater peace of mind, confidence and trust.
who will not love “100 percent uptime DC SLA” ?
Hi Randall! We wanted to follow up here to let you know that Block Storage will indeed be part of the Atlanta data center upgrades. Stay tuned and keep an eye out for more updates.
Was it my imagination, or did block storage briefly appear a few days ago in Atlanta and then disappear again?
Hey Doug! That’s not something I’m aware of. We’ll be sure to make an announcement once Block Storage is available in Atlanta!
Any update on block storage in Alanta?
We don’t have one just yet, but we’ll be sure to post an update our blog when we do!
I have some question about GDPR below as:
1. What is the difference between EU GDPR and UK GDPR?
2. Does the EU GDPR apply to the UK GDPR
Looking forward to your reply
Hey Hansen – thanks for your question regarding GDPR. While we cannot offer legal advice or counseling, I think the following Community Questions post should help with some clarification. It includes links to some relevant resources that provide more information:
Linode GDPR and EU-US Privacy Shield Compliance
GDPR is a resolution that was passed by the EU, this then had to be implemented into member states laws. In the UK (which was a member of the EU at the time) this was done by passing the Data Protection Act 2018.
As such the “UK GDPR” is the law enacted by the Data Protection Act 2018, and is compliant with the rules that were required by the EU’s GDPR. There’s no functional difference other than the fact that the UK is no longer part of the EU.
Any news for the Brazil datacenter?
