Updated Linode Plans / New Larger Linodes

May 17, 2018 12:26 pm

We’ve updated the Linode lineup!

All plans have received a resource increase. All standard instances now come with more disk space, with the larger standard plans getting a RAM, vCPU, and storage increase. The High Memory plans got a RAM boost. We’ve also introduced a new large standard instance: the Linode 192GB, complimenting our largest High Memory Linode: the Highmem 300GB. Check out the full lineup on our pricing page.

All new plans are available now – new Linodes will get the new specs. And, as always, these upgrades are available to your existing Linodes, too – you’ll see a “pending upgrade” banner in the Linode Manager.

We’d love to know what other instances types or sizes you’d find useful. Let us know in the comments.

  1. It would be awesome if there would be more instance types like the new digitalocean “Flexible Droplets”.

    2 GB 2 vCPUs 60 GB 3 TB $15/mo

  2. Thanks a lot for this awesome upgrade!

  3. Nice guys, thanks muchly!

  4. Awesome! Always ahead of the game. Gonna update our article asap.

  5. Thank you!

  6. Wow Wow Wow thanks heaps!

  7. I just migrated and noticed the processor changed from an Intel E5 to an AMD EPYC. Meltdown/Spectre have you guys spooked enough to switch over?

  8. Thanks for the free upgrade! And kudos to Linode for going with AMD EPYC 7451 processors.

  9. Thank you, it’s awesome upgrade!

  10. I clicked the upgrade button for my $5/month VPS, but after reboot, my server still says 20GB disk space instead of 25GB.

  11. Great news! Thanks a lot, just in time. Love you 🙂

  12. Awesome! couldn’t believe I commented on linode fanpage and you guy just updated plans. Its like wish coming true. Thank you

  13. I really appreciate the upgrade!

    As far as more options. I too would like something in between the 10 and 20 dollar plan like the 2 GB 2 vCPUs 60 GB 3 TB $15/mo suggested above.

  14. I’ve forgotten what I used to have actually. Is there a place that list what they used to be before this change?

  15. Nice!

    Do you have any plans to update your monthly traffic limits? This is the main reason why I still have a few dedicated servers.

    I’d love to see plans that compete with OVH/other providers in terms of bandwidth (eg: unlimited usage, but with a speed limit). The day this happens is the day I move everything to Linode.

    Also, good to see some AMD CPUs 🙂

    I just got the free storage upgrade, then migrated to a Nanode 1024 using the extra space in the 2048 to make a smaller raw disk. I still have an E5-2680v3, would have loved to get one of those Epyc processors.

    When you upgraded, did you expand your disk in Linode Manager?

  17. thanks for disk quota updates – came at a good time previously at 80% disk usage now after disk upgrades at 40% disk usage !

    did get to try AMD EPYC though still on old E5-2680v2

  18. I agree with the previous commenters on their proposed $15 plan. Or, even better for my use case, enhancing the backup service so it can also be used to back up block storage.

  19. @William – Yes, you expand your disk in the manager.

  20. That’s awesome. I just wish you guys could provide some cheaper non-ssd storage for people who don’t need the speed of SSD. Sometimes, we just want to store dead barely-used files. Maybe provide it as block storage.

  21. Hi LINODE, are you going to keep us FOR EVER?! Thanks guys!

  22. Together forever and never to part,
    Together forever we two. 😛
    Thanks for the upgrade. Awesome feeling.

  23. Thanks for the update Linode 🙂

    Other comments here, mentioned that their Linode CPU was upgrade from Intel to AMD. That sounds great. Unfortunately AMD is not available at all Linode data centers. According to Linode support, only a few Dallas hosts up are in rotation and running AMD. And more or less random at this time.

    In the future, if Linode decides to offer AMD or an open source CPU for all their data centers, we look forward to that

    Even better than AMD would be an open source CPU. Seems this would align with Linode’ values. We would love to migrate to an open source CPU. For those not familiar with open source CPU:
    • RISC-V at http://opencores.org/openrisc Google, HP, and Oracle have joined the RISC-V foundation.
    • Amber at https://opencores.org/project/amber
