    I had a linode on SG during one year and had to move it since got tired of network issues. Last time I had to report those issues myself and then, they updated SG network status page. I got tired of being a SG monitor

    The UK prices are now out for a few more servers. Bit of a bump in monthly over established EU prices.

    Must be the cost of power/rates in the UK, and similar if not equal pricing to Germany.

    The discovery one is not a bad price, £64.98+vat with 2x480SSD, only 250Mbps - I've not really pushed past this according to the network graphs in linode/nixstats.

    A more direct comparison might be the SP-32( no EG30+ avail ).
    UK, 79.99+vat @ 20%,
    France, £59.99. + vat @ 20%.
    i.e. £24 minimum bump for a 'UK' location, on-base machines!

    So the plus I see in the UK:
    Marginally less latency. - 80% of my traffic is UK & 50% of that south of Birmingham. But as mentioned before a hop to GRA from UK pops can't be that much...
    A possibly cleaner IP range. - I send via AWS so moot.
    Different staff. - Same company philosophy I imagine.
    It's UK based. - Whatever that means given we're still in Europe. I have no legal req to host in the UK, only Europe, for now.

    Anything else?

    Cost wise it's still very tempting, going from a 24Gb linode + a few satellites is a good saving.

    Whilst I know I'm on a single parent/shared node at Linode, I do know they are watching the physical host.
    3x##-32 servers in GRA running Galera/HA gives me redundancy, for less to equal monthly spend I have with linode, but more headaches in setup :)

    I think the only feature I'd miss is the snapshot, and it's one I've never actually had to use. I tend to snapshot before updates; just in case. Having a daily then 3 and one week old is reassuring too.

    TL;DR So more ££ for LDN vs GRA...choices choices.
