On June 16, Linode turned into the 14th year on the marketing. Say “Happy Birthday” to Linode – a leading provider of cloud hosting services.
Different from many previous birthday celebrating, this 14th year, instead of launching new B-day promotion, Linode adds more services with new features.

Here are some highlights:
Linode Block Storage service (in beta)
