We’re proud to announce Linode is heading down under later this year for the launch of our newest data center: Linode Sydney. This will be our 11th data center worldwide and comes on the heels of our recent global expansion to Toronto and Mumbai.
This is a significant milestone for us. From the early days of Linode, the greater Australia region has consistently represented one of our largest customer communities. These customers have traditionally deployed cloud servers at our data centers in California, Singapore, and Japan. With the launch of Linode Sydney, regional customers will now benefit from low latency and performance gains by running their modern applications closer to home. And for those developers and organizations that couldn’t use Linode before, they’ll now have another choice in cloud providers that allows them to be compliant with data sovereignty laws.
Launching this data center extends our mission of accelerating innovation by making cloud computing simple, affordable, and accessible to all – now with the proximity and quality of service that Australia deserves.
Australia is one of the hottest locations in the world for innovation. The city of Sydney is home to nearly half of all Australian startups and public cloud adoption in the country is growing at a higher rate than anywhere else in the world.
“Some of the world’s most successful startups were born in Sydney. It’s a city with a vibrant developer ecosystem and an amazing track record of creating companies that have grown into global market leaders. With our presence in Sydney, we’ll be providing the cloud infrastructure to enable the next Atlassian and Canva.” – Dan Spataro, Director of Data Center and Network Operations, Linode
We are laser-focused on doing one thing and one thing only: Making it simple to develop, deploy, and scale cloud infrastructure at the best price-to-performance ratio in the market. It’s a formula we’ve followed for 16 years and one that has helped more than 800,000 developers and companies innovate and grow faster.
The support from our thousands of customers in Australia over the years has been nothing short of amazing. It’s something we appreciate every day. Being able to deliver the cloud experience they have been waiting for is an honor and a privilege
Our full portfolio of services in Sydney will be available at the same universal, flat, and transparent price points as all Linode data centers. Sign up here to receive updates on the Linode’s Sydney data center and beta testing opportunities.
