Nice intro! The main reason I’m not using Vagrant yet myself is that I work with a lot of different under powered hardware lately. Instead of virtualization, I’ve been using several (free) legacy systems, building real servers from spare parts, and balancing my requirements across multiple machines. It’s fun, but managing my little network can definitely be time consuming.

Unfortunately running even a basic virtual machine for extended periods is more than my hardware can handle. You need to have a moderately modern computer to get into virtualization. Of course, I also realize most developers probably have more capable setups self contained withn a single box. (For comparison, I can’t run creative software like Photoshop either.)

Some of your concepts are still applicable though (related to provisioning anyways), and if you have the capacity to virtualize then that’s undoubtedly the way to go. This is the future. Thanks for your post.
