      Do you know of a 'commercial' WireGuard packages that might be usable for startup/corporate VPN solution as an alternative to OpenVPN or Tailscale? So far, I've found Perimeter 81 and AppGate. If you have any real-world experience with a WireGuard solution for a business setting, I'd greatly appreciate hearing from you.

                      Our whole DevOps stack consists of the following tools:

                      • GitHub (incl. GitHub Pages/Markdown for Documentation, GettingStarted and HowTo's) for collaborative review and code management tool
                      • Respectively Git as revision control system
                      • SourceTree as Git GUI
                      • Visual Studio Code as IDE
                      • CircleCI for continuous integration (automatize development process)
                      • Prettier / TSLint / ESLint as code linter
                      • SonarQube as quality gate
                      • Docker as container management (incl. Docker Compose for multi-container application management)
                      • VirtualBox for operating system simulation tests
                      • Kubernetes as cluster management for docker containers
                      • Heroku for deploying in test environments
                      • nginx as web server (preferably used as facade server in production environment)
                      • SSLMate (using OpenSSL) for certificate management
                      • Amazon EC2 (incl. Amazon S3) for deploying in stage (production-like) and production environments
                      • PostgreSQL as preferred database system
                      • Redis as preferred in-memory database/store (great for caching)

                      The main reason we have chosen Kubernetes over Docker Swarm is related to the following artifacts:

                      • Key features: Easy and flexible installation, Clear dashboard, Great scaling operations, Monitoring is an integral part, Great load balancing concepts, Monitors the condition and ensures compensation in the event of failure.
                      • Applications: An application can be deployed using a combination of pods, deployments, and services (or micro-services).
                      • Functionality: Kubernetes as a complex installation and setup process, but it not as limited as Docker Swarm.
                      • Monitoring: It supports multiple versions of logging and monitoring when the services are deployed within the cluster (Elasticsearch/Kibana (ELK), Heapster/Grafana, Sysdig cloud integration).
                      • Scalability: All-in-one framework for distributed systems.
                      • Other Benefits: Kubernetes is backed by the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF), huge community among container orchestration tools, it is an open source and modular tool that works with any OS.
