As a blogger, Vagrant is my goto tool for all the Labs I build for the tutorials. As a Developer or Systems Administrator, Vagrant will help you have a running environment in minutes for your development or testing new technologies.

With Vagrant you can build and manage virtual machine environments in a single workflow. With an easy-to-use workflow and focus on automation, Vagrant lowers development environment setup time, increases production parity, and makes the “works on my machine” excuse a relic of the past.
