Vagrant starting a virtual machine using 'vagrant up'
|Original author(s)||Mitchell Hashimoto|
|Developer(s)||Mitchell Hashimoto and John Bender|
|Stable release||1.6.5 (September 4, 2014[±])|
|License||Mixed open-source and proprietary|
The computer software Vagrant creates and configures virtual development environments. It can be seen as a wrapper around virtualization software such as VirtualBox, KVM, VMware and around configuration management software such as Ansible, Chef, Salt or Puppet.
Since version 1.6, Vagrant natively supports Docker containers, which serve as a substitute for a fully virtualized operating system. This reduces the overhead as Docker uses lightweight LinuX Containers (LXC).
