CPU time on Linode is cheaper than standard-priced EC2 instances. Compared to a reserved instance they lose badly, though. And last I checked, storage on Linode was 8x higher than EBS.

OK, I didn't remember storage being that bad. Also, reserved instances are billed per-year, so my per-hour comparison stands.

Linode's storage is prohibitively expensive compared to EBS and S3. Their instance sizes are all based on a $1/GB flat rate with no volume discounts.

If anything, this has to be slashed in half somehow. It's been a few years since this has been adjusted.
