Say no to lock-in and yes to portability

A different approach

Move your workloads from one cloud to another without needing to change your tools and processes. Our APIs allow you to reuse your code, no matter which cloud provider you choose.


A Different Approach to Cloud Computing

We built Linode to democratize cloud computing. That starts with infrastructure not built on proprietary protocols. Enjoy the freedom to move workloads between Linode and other cloud providers. Being locked into large proprietary clouds has a real impact on budget and control. It’s not enough to say you’re open. You need to be portable.


cloud with lock

No Vendor Lock-in

The Linode API is completely open and free. You can build apps and infrastructure on top of it without sacrificing your future freedom. Linode fits seamlessly into a multicloud strategy. Get started with just an API key.

Open at Every Layer of the Stack

Unlike other cloud providers, we support all open source distributions and don’t offer proprietary forks. We also develop in the open: Our Cloud Manager, CLI, and API documentation are all on GitHub and open source; and we work alongside the community to improve our software.
