Vagrant gives you the tools to build unique development environments for each project once and then easily tear them down and rebuild them only when they’re needed so you can save time and frustration.
Drush Vagrant Integration provides Drush commands to accomplish common Vagrant tasks, and provides a powerful templating framework ('blueprints'). It also has tools to implement Drush aliases for Vagrant projects and VMs, thus allowing simpler remote control of Vagrant projects.
Drush Vagrant is intended to simplify building collaborative, distributed development and testing environments, that encourage the use of Drupal best-practices. Projects can easily be cloned and shared via Git, or even bundled into blueprints that others can use as templates for their own development environments.
By itself, Drush-vagrant will only provide a 'default' blueprint. You'll probably be interested in checking out these blueprints:
- http://drupal.org/project/drupal-up (drush dl drupal-up)
- http://drupal.org/project/aegir-up (drush dl aegir-up)
While principally developed as a Drupal development tool, Drush Vagrant itself is not Drupal-specific. It provides generally useful wrappers around Vagrant, and can thus assist in building and testing non-Drupal projects, such as Puppet modules.
