"Within a week of contacting Linode Professional Services, we had signed a contract to organize and transfer more than 150 websites, managed across multiple servers. Linode set up a Google Sheet so we could monitor the migration progress and allow us to provide feedback in realtime to speed up the transition." Shaun Smith, Sparkable Content Director

Professional Services FAQ:

What is Linode Professional Services?

Linode’s Professional Services team provides efficient and practical system administration for both initial deployment of your apps as well as your system’s ongoing, operational demands. Whichever kind of one-off project needs attention, Professional Services can perform it for you.

What system administration tasks does Professional Services perform?

The three most frequent Professional Services demands are for site migrations, entire Linode deployments, and control panel installs. Our team of experts is beyond proficient in just about all one-off sysadmin tasks (e.g., deploying/installing web and application servers, content management systems, mail servers, database servers, application frameworks, and high availability).

Does Professional Services only install the cPanel control panel?

We’ll install any control panel of your choice, whether that be cPanel, Plesk, Virtualmin, Webmin, Postfix Admin, phpMyAdmin and most others.

Do you provide high availability implementations that scale?

Our Professional Services team is proficient in architecting the most complex implementations. We can design and deploy a high availability environment using technologies such as HAProxy, GlusterFS and Galera for database synchronization. If you want to scale seamlessly, we can utilize distributed deployment systems such as SaltStack, Chef or Puppet – whichever you feel comfortable with.

How much does Professional Services cost and how is billing handled?

Every implementation is unique. That’s why we work with you to define the requirements and scope of the task before creating a proposal. Payment terms are 50 percent up front and 50 percent upon completion, net 15 days. If you are a Linode Managed customer, you qualify for a 20-percent discount.

If provisioning a Linode were so easy, why would I hire you to do it for me?

Sure, you can spin up a Linode in less than a minute without our help. But if you want to add NodeBalancers or Longview Analytics, or configure a certain stack (e.g., Apache, Nginx, Varnish, HAProxy, PHP, MySQL, PostgreSQL, Postfix, Dovecot, Ruby on Rails, WordPress), Professional Services can assist you going forward. If you are unfamiliar with a certain add-on, we can deploy it and have it running before you’re finished reading the user’s manual.

What advantages can I gain by enlisting Professional Services?

When you hire us to orchestrate and execute any system administration task – whether for one site or an entire fleet of servers - we’ll make sure it’s done safely, efficiently, and practically with as little stress for you as possible.

Consider a site migration, for example. We would configure the new Linode servers, sync the content, manage the DNS transition and handle every other aspect of the move.
