We have used Linode for years spanning across our network that includes https://www.proxyserver.com
. We have served tens of millions of users on our Linodes and couldn't be happier. In terms of speed and performance, I was getting just as much here as I was at AWS for half the cost.
We have never had an major outages and every time we needed to contact support they were pretty quick to help us resolve whatever we were working on.
I would highly recommend them to users who need a cheaper alternative to AWS.
