Vagrant is an open-source tool used to manage and create different virtual environments using virtualization technology such as VMWare, VirtualBox, etc. It simplifies the Configuration management of virtual machines to increase productivity with the help of Provisioners. Provisioners allow the customization of the configuration of virtual machines.
Vagrant gives a large number of development environments to the developers, which allows the developers to work beyond several operating systems. The vagrant tool can be installed on almost all Linux distributions.
Let’s dig into this article to find out how we can install Vagrant on Ubuntu 22.04
The virtual machine is required to install Vagrant, we can use any virtual machine for this purpose, such as Hyper-V, Docker, VMware, etc., but we are going to use VirtualBox in this tutorial.
