Onion, Inc. is the parent company of The Onion, A.V. Club, and Clickhole, its three online digital media products. The Onion's incipient, in-house servers demanded deployment of too frequent and numerous administration tasks (e.g., server installations). These manual processes caused the following: application errors, increased downtime, slow server provisioning, inefficient use of capital and poor system performance. They chose Linode to overcome these challenges. They have implemented AWS-type cloud host for its setup because it doesn't deliver simplicity. The results of implementing Linode were downtime reduced, deployment time minimized and streamlined server provisioning & infrastructure management.
