Love Linode, massive fan and advocate for many years but we're considering moving our VM's to Digitalocean.com
. They've got great reviews, awesome control panel, SSD's for all plans, all for about 25% of the price. What makes Linode so much better that they are worth 4x the amount? The only obvious point I know of is that Digital ocean currently only have two physical locations - NYC and Amsterdam.
I'm not looking to put Linode down, they have been incredibly reliable and helpful, I'm just trying to make an informed decision.
