Using a bastion or jump server has been a common way to allow access to secure compute instances in private subnets. That approach is implemented by some IaaS providers like Oracle.

However, using bastion hosts is not the best practice from the security point of view

Recently, the big three cloud providers, Amazon Web Services (AWS), Google Cloud Platform (GCP), and Microsoft Azure, have all released services that provide an alternative solution for Leaving Bastion Hosts Behind!

For example, Amazon Web Services (AWS) has recently released two new features that allow us to connect securely to private infrastructure without the need for a bastion host.

(1) AWS System Session Manager (SSM)
(2) Amazon EC2 Instance Connect
