Linode, a US-based global provider of cloud hosting services with 9 data centers delivering its services to around 800,000 developers worldwide, has released its new Linux cloud instance type: Linode Dedicated CPU. This ‘Dedicated CPU’ would provide a powerful infrastructure solution for CPU-intensive applications such as video encoding, machine learning and data analytics processing.
Developers would be able to deploy a Linode dedicated instance in just a few seconds with minimal configuration. They can choose from a range of Dedicated CPU plans starting with 4GB RAM, 25GB storage and 4TB transfer. For those that need maximum processing power, plans graduate up to 48 vCPU’s and 96GB RAM.
Linode customers can now choose from a broader range of cloud servers for nearly any application, from quickly launching a gaming server to scaling enterprise software worldwide.
“For the last 15 years Linode has been relentless in our mission to provide the highest quality products and award winning service for the Linux community,” said Christopher Aker, founder and CEO of Linode. “With the expansion of our cloud instance types, Dedicated CPU delivers even greater power for developers and their teams to deliver optimized application performance.”

Additional add-on solutions for the Linode Dedicated CPU solution would include backups, block storage, node-balancers and coming soon object storage, for those that need to store and deliver large amounts of content.
“The landscape for Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) has changed dramatically since Linode’s inception,” said Tory Kulick, Vice President of Operations at Linode. “Adoption for IaaS has skyrocketed, and as such, our customer base is more diverse than ever. Fortune 500 companies to hobbyists can leverage our infrastructure to execute a broad range of use cases. Dedicated CPU was a must and we are excited to meet our customers need with this expansion of service.”
