Getting Started

Explore other Providers

In these tutorials, your project was backed with VirtualBox. But Vagrant can work with a wide variety of backend providers, such as VMware, Hyper-V, and more.

»Install a new provider

Read the documentation of each provider for more information on how to set it them up.

»Boot with the new provider

Once you have a provider installed, you do not need to make any modifications to your Vagrantfile; just run vagrant up with the proper provider and Vagrant will do the rest.

$ vagrant up --provider=vmware_desktop

Once you run vagrant up with another provider other Vagrant commands will automatically use that provider. So when you are ready to SSH or destroy for example, run the commands normally (no extra flags necessary).

For more information on providers, read the full documentation on providers.
