In this short video, Daniel Farrell tells us about Vagrant, a tool for working with Virtual Machines (VMs). A modular framework, even. Farrell tells us that it starts with a Vagrant file, simple commands, and working in the shell.

But what’s so great about it? Vagrant is a cross-platform tool and it does networking out-of-the-box. It also solves problems in a modular way.

Farrell also explains two key concepts—provisioners and providers—and why teams should use this tool when working with VMs.

Nice! I've wondered about vagrant but never had the time to dig into what it is/does. Perfect 5 minute intro to wet the appetite!

Very cool overview. I did hear this at ATO2015 but it was only recently that I started experimenting with Vagrant.
