Use case

Provision development environments

Understand the fundamental configurations for networking and provisioning development environments.


Maintaining consistency between environments

The cost of fixing a bug exponentially increases the closer it gets to production. Traditionally, development and production environments strive to be as close to identical as possible. However, this becomes a challenge as local environments may differ from those production environments, which tend to be much more dynamic.


Unified workflows enforce consistency across platforms

Vagrant leverages a declarative configuration file to mirror production environments by providing the same operating system, packages, accounts, and configurations, all while giving users the flexibility to use their favorite editor, IDE, and browser. Vagrant also integrates with your existing configuration management tooling like Ansible, Chef, Docker, Puppet, or Salt, so you can use the same scripts to configure Vagrant as you would production.

Customer case study

How Datadog scales test environments with Vagrant and Terraform

Datadog’s monitoring solution involves hundreds of different technologies and it runs on thousands of possible stack combinations. Their solutions team is regularly challenged to build test environments that reproduce unique customer conditions and issues. Building test environments is onerous and time-consuming, but with the help of HashiCorp’s Vagrant and Terraform, they’ve developed a more scalable system with which they can build and manage test environments as a team and easily re-use each other’s work.

Getting your Python development environment ready with Vagrant

When building apps with Python, you'll probably have to replicate your dev environment on another computer and a different operating system, especially if you're working on a development team. One way to do it would be by installing and configuring every tool every time you need them. A better solution could be using Vagrant, a tool that helps you configure dev environments easily so that you can replicate without much effort.
