Amazon Lightsail

1. It's highly recommended for users who are looking to build their own VPN service2. Amazon Lightsail provides plenty of outgoing data for any use case (e.g., a $3.50 plan provides 500GB of outgoing data)3. Can be used to deploy containerized applications that require scaling4. Plans ranging from $3.50 to $160 a month, which is awesome

Well suited when your product is used by millions of customers and less appropriate where the application is based on performance or execution speed

Alternatives Considered

Amazon Lightsail

Amazon Lightsail is a great platform. Before we started using it, we were using AWS EC2 instances as our primary servers after being dissatisfied with other providers. After Amazon Lightsail's introduction, we were able to reduce our operating costs, improve our quality assurance tasks, and provide much more efficient and better apps with our microservices architecture.
