Does Linode offer a Data Archiving Service?

Does Linode offer a service that lets me backup my Linodes and then delete them, saving the data for re-deployment at a later date?

We don't offer a data archiving service, but there are ways you can go about storing your data for later use. One option would be to make a local copy of the data on your Linodes. You could do this either by following the instructions in our guide on copying a disk over SSH or by using any of a number of available file transfer methods.

Another option could be to use Object Storage to store your data. This is probably the closest to what you were looking for, as you could delete your Linodes after copying your data, and then keep your data for only the monthly cost of the Object Storage.
