These days, many businesses choose to host their entire infrastructure on a cloud provider, like Amazon. This has a number of benefits, such as the ability to quickly scale up or down or reductions in initial capex. One of the difficulties with cloud environments is offering secured access to private cloud resource with VPNs. The native cloud solutions, like Amazon VPN, can be costly. For example, running an Amazon Client VPN costs $0.15/hr and then an additional $0.05/hr for every client connected. For a small company with four employees connected 8 hours every weekday, this can add up to almost 200 / month. If your employees keep their laptops on all day, costs can quickly escalate to several hundreds of dollars a month. That’s not to mention bandwidth costs.
