Linode opens its newest datacenter in Singapore! This is Linode’s seventh datacenter, and is purpose-built to serve the already huge and growing markets in Southeast Asia, India, Australia, and surrounding regions.

Linode’s Singapore network is powered by Cisco ASR 9000-series routers, and currently blends connectivity from Telstra/Pacnet and PCCW, along with direct peering into the Equinix Internet Exchange (EIE) – providing you with access to hundreds of peering opportunities. Check out our Speedtest page to test latency and download speeds.

Singapore supports all of the standard Linode features available in all of our datacenters – like 40 Gbps redundant connectivity to each hypervisor host machine, the Linode Backup service, NodeBalancers, native IPv6, etc – and is the same simple pricing as in other Linode datacenters.


Data is never clean. You will spend most of your time cleaning and preparing data. 95% of tasks do not require deep learning ( or other forms of machine learning). In 90% of cases generalized linear regression will do the trick. Big Data is just a tool. You should embrace Bayesian approach. No one cares how you did it. Academia and business are two different worlds. Presentation is key – be the master of Powerpoint. All models are false, but some are useful. There is no fully automated Data Science. You need to get your hands dirty.
