Vagrant is an open source software used to create and manage virtual development environments. It can be considered a wrapper around virtualization software such as VirtualBox and configuration management software such as Chef, Ansible, and Puppet.
This book looks at the potential that virtualization offers us, and breaks down the process of creating a distributable and powerful virtual development environment. You will learn how to create more advanced development environments consisting of multiple virtual machines, allowing you to mimic multi-server production environments.
Finally, you’ll gain an insight into Vagrant Cloud, which is a suite of web services built into Vagrant that allows you to remotely view applications on a Vagrant instance.
