The Onion Finds Simplicity, Reliability, and Flexibility with Linode
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.
