Vagrant: The Oscar Plugin Developing and Testing Puppet Enterprise locally! Jeff Scelza

What is Vagrant? ● Marketing: Create and configure lightweight, reproducible and portable development environments ● Operation: Provides a disposable environment and consistent workflow for developing and testing infrastructure management scripts ● Developer: Isolates dependencies and their configuration within a single disposable consistent environment, without sacrificing any of the tool you use.

So...What is Oscar? ● Is a set of Vagrant plugins and templates that build up a full Puppet Enterprise environment based on top of Vagrant ● Created by Andrien Thebo
