    Looks like Linode Block Storage is out of beta now Linode Blog » Announcing Linode Block Storage Volumes. I tested Linode Block Storage when it was in beta here.

    Nice.
    Although it is 5 times more expensive than Spaces of Digitalocean if you calculate the bare price per GiB only.
    There is no extra usage fee, no minimal compulsory purchase in GiB's.
    In short, at the end of the ride, the best choice.
    If you ask me.

    Not going to happen.......... I think so.

    For me it is ideal. Cheap Backup solution.

    Jep. Up to.
    Hihi. Very business-related-marketing Twitter message.
    Most likely, frequently asked files are written in the NVMe.
    All the rest HDD.

    So do not expect a big improvement for the live system over the beta.
    Its fine to me. Don't need fast disks for back-up and test stuff.
