While getting my Amazon Web Services Certifications I found something special. You can open an account with Amazon Web Services and use it for whatever you need for a year.
I decided I needed a single bare metal setup rather than using LXC/LXD containers to separate certain apps on my server. This required a split tunnel VPN. This enables the server to route certain traffic through a VPN connection, while everything else will have direct access, bypassing the VPN. Network traffic will be securely separated.
