I've mostly skimmed the Wireguard articles and blog posts I've come across without ever actually taking it for a spin. However, I've recently deployed an entire stack of self-hosted services on Digital Ocean and at the same time have been building up the services I have running on my home server for serving media and handling home automation. For management and backup purposes I decided it would be beneficial for both of these hosts to share a private network so that they could connect to each other as if they were both on my home lan. In the past I would have created an IPSec tunnel between the hosts and given them a route to each other using that tunnel. But, not today! Wireguard!
