Linode Scaling

If you use Linode try and keep your disk image as small as you possibly can, especially for web servers where you don't store much data and you might need to clone them often.

Even if the disk is 90% empty it takes FAR longer to clone than if you've resized it smaller.

This saves us a huge amount of time in scaling activities.
