    I'm curious what this this collaboration between Linode and Limelight will bring.
    Partly because both companies focus on completely different customer groups.

    • Linode with low prices next to Digital Ocean, Vultr etc in the lower segment (compete on price).
    • Limelight which is in the higher segment, competes on complex custom solution (no prices mentioned), assurance etc (SLA).
    Whether Linode wants to go into the higher segment with yet to be introduced solutions.
    Or Limelight wants to go into the lower segment (compete on price) with yet to be introduced solutions, eg brand awareness or purchase customers and then hope that they will also enter the higher segment in the future.for example.
