Keep in mind there are a ton of good vpn options, too. Don't get me wrong, OpenVPN is awesome, but there's tinc, wireguard, openconnect, shadowsocks... the number of vpn-like options is boggling.
There's a neat project out there called streisand (link below) which bundles many of these tools together complete with a document output on how to use them. Works within AWS as well. I haven't used it but always struck me as a good intro to vpn-like tools if someone wanted to try them.
Thanks, the point of article wasn't to compare those, it was how quick you can set something up without prior knowledge
