It is a huge upgrade for Linode server.

1) SSDs

  • All SSD.
  • Pure SSD, not hybrid.
  • Server class SSD.

2) 40Gbps network

3) CPU

New Ivy Bridge E5-2680.v2 full-power server-grade processors.

10 Cores, 20 threads, 2.8GHz, 25MB smart cache

4) New Plans

Doubled RAM, increased outbound traffic.

My Linode node is powered by 64bit Centos, so I got this upgrade immediately. If 32bit OS, wait 2 months for upgrading.

For new node, all available right now.
