Linode 2年目の記念日とステータスの更新

Linode.comメンバーの皆様へ。

本日、2005年6月16日は、Linode.comの2周年記念日です。 この1年は非常に成功しました。Linodeのサブスクリプションとオンラインホストの数は、昨年のこの時期から2倍になりました。私はLinodeの最初の従業員を雇いました。 私たちは、提供するサービスを改善し続けてきました。

ここでは、来年以降の計画についてご紹介します。

[b]Xen への移行 [/b]

[url=http://www.cl.cam.ac.uk/Research/SRG/netos/xen/]Xen[/url] は、単一のシステムを複数のドメイン(ゲストOS)に分割する技術です。 Xen のゲスト OS は Linux に限定されませんが、今回の目的ではまず Linux を提供することに重点を置きます。 エンドユーザーの視点から見たUMLに対する主な利点はパフォーマンスです。Xen はほぼネイティブな速度で動作しますが、UMLは実用上50~100%のオーバーヘッドが発生します。

Xen のサポートは [url=https://www.linode.com/products/controlpanel.cfm]LPM[/url] ですでに実装されていますが、少なくとも私たちにとって必要ないくつかの機能がXen (PAE サポート) にコード化されるのを待つことになります。

[b]Shared-Storageインフラ[/b]

現在、各ホストにはハードディスクがあり、そのホストのLinodeファイルシステムが格納されています。 明らかなように、ハードディスクは故障する可能性があり、特定のホストに問題を引き起こします。 また、各ホストのディスク容量が固定されているため、すべてのプランに提供できるディスク容量が制限されています。

ネットワークストレージインフラ に移行する目的は、限られたスペースの制約から解放されることと、ディスクが故障したときに発生する問題を解消するための冗長性とフェイルセーフのセットアップを提供することです。

[b]Xen + Shared Storage = Live Migrations[/b] 。

Xen と共有ストレージを併用することで、エンドユーザーには全く見えない形で、Xen をベースにした Linode を稼働したまま別のホストに移動させる「ライブマイグレーション」が可能になります。 これは、異なるホスト間でのLinodeのリアルタイムなロードバランシングや、クラスタ内の特定のホストがメンテナンスを行っている間にLinodeを別のホスト群に移動させるのに役立ちます。 素晴らしいですね。

今後の展開をご理解いただけると幸いです。 Linode.comは、最高の仮想サーバプラットフォームを提供することをお約束します。 そこで、Linode.comを代表して、皆様のビジネス、提案、Linodeコミュニティへの貢献に感謝の意を表したいと思います。

謹んで申し上げます。

    I’ve been here almost the whole time, since July 2003. It’s been amazing watching Linode grow from just a handful of hosts to the dozens and dozens there are now. It was a fantastic service then, and somewhat unbelievably, it’s gotten better and better ever since.

    My favorite was 1GB HDD -> 2GB HDD -> 3GB HDD. As soon as I’d get close to running out of space, there’d be more! Free!

    Caker, the plans you’ve outlined for the upcoming year are very exciting. Thanks for making Linode the perfect tool for so many uses.

    This is the best hosting company I have ever partnered with, hands down.

    Well done Caker. 😆 😆 😆

    First and foremost, Happy birthdaaay!!! Where’s the party?

    I’ve been with Linode since april 2004 and I don’t remember being sorry throughout my time here. Excelent job! 😉

    I am too eagerly awaiting the new changes!

    Bravo! Congratulations caker (and mikegrb).

    /me passes champagne around

    Xen is an exciting thing, even now while it’s still maturing. I’m very much looking forward to Linode migrating to it.

    Ive only been here for about 3 months. But man I tell you what this is by far the best service ever. Since I have been with you guys I have signed up with other companies just to see how they compare with linode so I can post reviews on my blogg and make people aware about how crappy they are. And let me tell you Linode is the best and hopefully always will be, Dont stray away from here guys, you will be missing out on something spectacular.

    Congrats Linode.com! Two years strong and many more to come. 8)

    I cant wait for the Migration, Xen has already proved itself to be a powerful OS Virtulization kernel, and I think the transition will be welcomed here.

    Congratulations!

    I’ve been here since August 2003. I’m especially happy that Linode was able to, after much work on their part, eliminate the load spike problem which had been plagueing early linodes. My Linode has been humming along so smoothly for months and months now that I hardly even bother to check my munin graphs for problems anymore. Great Linode performance and support is making my system administration skills rusty, and that’s a good thing!

    My only request for the future is to add more disk space, and more memory if possible, to the plans. I’m approaching 90% full on my filesystem and so far Linode has saved the day by adding more disk space to the plans right when I needed it, but it’s getting close to that time again!

    It’s been an amazing and wonderful two years.

    /me raises his glass

    Here’s to another two!

    Yeah, I fully love everything about Linode, and the UML system has been perfect for what I needed. If Xen is gonna be even better, you’ll have a fully satisfied customer for a long time.

    P.S.: The best part is the honesty of caker and mike, and I’ve learned a bunch and been able to teach in the IRC channel which has been a great resource. I also feel that I can help mike and caker out at times with answering questions when their time could be better suited at keeping this great service working well.

    I love this service. I’ve been here 18 months and it keeps getting better. Happy birthday and thank you.

  11. Author Photo

    And since I’m an alcoholic, and I’m always looking for a reason to celebrate…

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY LINODE! *CHEERS*

    Wow, how the time flies! I’ve been here since almost the beginning (my billing history starts exactly two years ago today), and I’ve been quite happy with the service. I’m looking forward to Xen – it looks very promising. At home I now have a FC4 system that includes Xen, and it’s looking like it can do quite a lot.

    Congratulations! You deserve it Caker.

  14. Author Photo

    Been here since August 2003 and only had a couple of problems in all that time which is amazingly good.

    Cheers to caker! 😆

    Just checked my billing history goes back to October 2003… not far from being with linode 2 years myself cant believe its been that long already…

  16. Author Photo

    I joined early & have been a happy customer of linode ever since. Service over the past two years has been excellent and response time from Australia is good.

    Dear Caker,
    On this year annyversary, i hope we will get a apecial discount from linode, it will make us more royal to linode 🙂

    i am joining linode start from August,2005
    This month is my shell anniversary

    Regards,
    aries

    How about -5%? I mean, with the great customer support, fast response times, and just plain cool having a root account I think a -5% discount is a good idea!

  19. Author Photo

    Linode is already a great deal, and you’re only talking about $1/month for those of us on Linode64. I think I’d rather continue to get disk space and bandwidth bumps, as well as more work on Xen, than save $1/month.

  20. Author Photo

    I said *negative* 5%. I was trying to be a smart arse.

    Oh. My bad! Went right over my head.

  22. Author Photo

    i don’t think so if more diskspace will give us more benefit, maybe caker should give a special reward for a royal customer like discount 10 % or etc for monthly payment, this is just my opinion

    Regards,
    aries

    What members of which royal families have accounts on Linode? I’m curious. I didn’t even think about the possibility of royals being geeks.

  24. Author Photo

    I dont think he meant he’s part of a royal family … after all, wouldn’t that be a bit messed up? royal family members asking for 5-10% discount (not to say linode prices are < $100) 😛

  25. Author Photo

    Okay, bad jokes are flying left and right. If you’re lucky, they go right over your head.

    I think it’s time to declare the two year anniversary thread officialy finished…

  26. Author Photo

    DUCK! It’s a pun!

    A bit late, but, congrats! 🙂
