vagrantup.com is home of a powerful and neat new tool built on top of Oracle’s Virtualbox.

If you a developer and you haven’t heard of Vagrant then it is time for you to get familiar with  this tool. Vagrant appeals to the developer because of it’s easily to deploy VM’s that are configurable based on your individual, team, group or companies needs. Running through their tutorial on how to get started with vagrant is a good way to see the basic gist of what vagrant is. After you run through this tutorial, if your a web developer you will immediately see its use cases.

Because vagrant is built on top of Oracle’s Virtualbox it follows the “standing on the shoulders of giants” cliché, but this doesn’t hurt Vagrant at all since Virtualbox isn’t going anywhere and it well known virtualization software in the development realm. Vagrant appeals to the developer and to the enterprise development teams because of its power to centralize and control development environments.
