Vagrant lowers development environment setup time, increases development/production parity, and brings the idea of disposable compute resources
down to the desktop.

With One Command, Vagrant does all of the following:

  • Creates a Virtual Machine for you based on an Operating System of your choice.
  • Modifies the Physical Properties of this virtual machine (e.g., RAM, number of
    CPUs, etc.).
  • Establishes Network Interfaces so that you can access your virtual machine from
    your own computer, another device on the same network, or even from another
    virtual machine.
  • Sets up Shared Folders so that you can continue editing files on your own machine
    and have those modifications mirror over to the guest machine.
  • Boots the virtual machine so that it is running.
  • Sets the hostname of the machine, since a lot of software depends on this being
    properly set.
  • Provisions software on the machine via a shell script or configuration management
    solution such as Chef, Puppet, or a custom solution.
  • Performs host and guest specific Tweaking to work around known issues that may
    arise. For example, Ubuntu 12.04 LTS breaks VirtualBox networking defaults, so
    Vagrant makes minor modifications to some configuration in Ubuntu to make sure
    networking continues working. Vagrant does these sorts of things for many host/
    guest pairs.
