Likelihood to Recommend

1. It's highly recommended for users who are looking to build their own VPN service
2. 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 scaling
4. Plans ranging from $3.50 to $160 a month, which is awesome
