如果我们有在用Linode的朋友应该有看到官网关于Linode的字样已经从边缘到被替换,现在已经叫做Akamai 云服务,固然我们知道Linode是被Akamai收购的。但是实际上我们个人认为,Linode这个品牌还是蛮好的,一来好记,二来产品也是比较好用,只是他们的营销做的不如其他服务商。反而在Akamai进来包装成综合云产品后,可能后面易用性需要我们更熟悉一些,毕竟产品增加很多。

Akamai 云服务器2023.4.1起开始涨价 Linode品牌时代逐渐被更替

Akamai 宣布从4月1日开始要提价。

哪些服务将有新的定价?

商家准备提高一些计算实例类型和额外的IP地址的价格。

共享和专用计算计划的价格将上涨20%。基础款共享的Nanode计划保持不变,每月5美元。额外的IPv4 IP地址将从每月1美元增加到2美元。IPv6地址保持免费。
流量将出口超额成本从每GB 0.01美元降低到0.005美元(每月最多1PB)。

为什么要做出这些改变?

成本增加,毕竟商家需要扩展其他新产品,提高成本。基础产品不会涨价,但是其他产品也是相对主流服务商还是有价格优势的。

将出口流量价格减半

当Akamai收购Linode时,承诺利用内容交付网络(CDN)优势来大幅降低出口流量的价格,高数据传输速率已成为数据自由流动的一需求点,通常被用作将客户锁定在单一提供商痛点。高昂的数据转让费也是促进云服务选择的更大灵活性的推动因素之一。

因此,提高了一些计算计划的价格时,也通过将云出口成本削减一半来降低数据传输的痛苦——在我们已经提供的大量免费容量的基础上。Akamai的规模不仅使我们能够在全球范围内扩展我们的新云计算服务,而且将这种规模应用于云数据传输,并提供与其他云提供商相比的显著折扣。新的出口定价结构为云计算行业树立了新的标杆。

新价格什么时候生效?

新价格将于2023年4月1日生效。

未来,商家将会在网络更新,将现有核心站点连接到Akamai骨干网。容量改进和引入新的核心和分布式站点。最近发布了ISO、SOC 2和HIPAA标准的认证,包括其他云产品更新和全球推出。

官方原文如下:

As we expand our cloud portfolio and work to improve the resiliency and reach of our network, we face the reality of also evolving some of the economic fundamentals that make this expansion possible, while staying true to our core mission of making cloud computing affordable and accessible. 

As a result, we want to let you know about updates we are making to our pricing. Some of these changes will provide new, lower-cost options, while others will raise prices for certain products.

Which services will have new pricing?

We are increasing prices for some compute instance types and additional IP addresses.

The price of Shared and Dedicated compute plans will increase by 20%. Our shared Nanode plan remains unchanged at US$5 per month.
Additional IPv4 IP addresses will increase from US$1 to US$2 per month. IPv6 addresses remain free. 
Reduces egress overage costs from US$0.01 to US$0.005 per GB (up to 1PB per month) applied across all of our existing core data center locations. 
Why are we making these changes?

Akamai faces the same macroeconomic headwinds of growing costs for data center space, energy, and hardware as other providers. We resisted making any changes to our offerings for as long as we could. We believe that this pricing change reflects the new market reality, but we will continue to deliver the highest of standards, capabilities, and performance at the best prices our customers have come to expect.

We know Nanodes are important to many of our individual customers. Despite our costs going up, we made the decision to keep our Nanode pricing intact. And while we have increased the prices of our Shared and Dedicated plans, our prices are still 60% lower than the big hyperscalers’ prices and in line with or lower than the prices of many of our other competitors.

Cutting egress pricing in half

When Akamai acquired Linode, we promised to leverage our content delivery network (CDN) economics to aggressively drive down the price of egress, as it was one of the biggest pain points we heard our customers were facing when moving to the cloud. 

High data transfer rates have become a point of friction for the free movement of data, often used as a lever to lock customers into a single provider. High data transfer fees are also one of the drivers behind the European Union’s push to enact policies that foster greater flexibility of choice for cloud services. 

So, while we’re increasing prices in some of our compute plans, we’re also driving down the pain of data transfer by cutting our cloud egress costs in half — on top of the already large amount of free capacity that we already offer.

Akamai’s scale not only gives us the ability to scale our new cloud computing services around the world, but allows us to apply that scale to cloud data transfer and offer significantly discounted rates compared with other cloud providers. The new pricing structure for egress sets a new bar for the cloud computing industry.

When will the new prices go into effect?

The new pricing will go into effect on April 1, 2023.

Improving your cloud experience

As we highlighted in our recent announcement introducing Akamai Connected Cloud, we have been hard at work to scale our global network and infrastructure services. We’re also continuing to invest in our cloud computing services, and we’re excited about the new and improved services on our roadmap.

Network updates to connect existing core sites to the Akamai backbone
Capacity improvements and the introduction of new core and distributed sites
Recently released certifications for ISO, SOC 2, and HIPAA standards compliance
Product updates and global rollout for additional cloud primitives
