Overall Satisfaction with Vagrant

We use Vagrant across our Product Dev teams (QA, Front end/Back end Dev, IT Operations, etc) to test our code changes, debug and preview changes made. Vagrant has been a good local way for individuals to work on their code base before making any changes to our stage or production code.
  • Local ability to see and test code changes
  • Can be customized on per user basis
  • Can be a complicated setup process depending on your code
  • Long setup, especially on Windows machines
  • Positive - able to locally work and test code base
  • Negative - Set up process is tedious and complex
Virtualbox and VMware were easier products to set up but did not stack up against Vagrant with the customization and the ability to specifically test and work with our code base. Virtualbox and VMware were more generic solutions that may be easier but they did not fulfill the needs of what we were needing.
Vagrant is well suited for anyone technical department that does Development and needs to thoroughly test your code, see changes and preview features. Vagrant can give the ability for users to build their own test box to be able to accomplish all of this. In our experiencing the setup and tweaking to get to a workable state has been a bit of a task but now that we have it all done its a super useful tool.
