Cloud hosting provider Linode has been combatting DDoS attacks since Christmas Day, which have caused multiple disruptions and service outages across its global data centers. The attacks are ongoing and the company is struggling to keep its status blog up to notify customers.
I’ve been a Linode customer for more than 7 years and these recent events are somewhat worrying. I use their services for my personal projects and for projects at work. Now, I’m not prone to knee-jerk reactions, so I haven’t moved to a new provider yet, but I am considering it. DigitalOcean is looking quite attractive at the moment.
