A long time ago I was active in the local scouting group. To earn some money to keep our group in a healthy financial position we organized a so called vedettweekend. It's an event where people can have a beer, vedett obviously spin a dance, enjoy a spaghetti and have a good chat with your friends.
I have multiple VPNs launched at any time that route all of my traffic outside
the eyes of my ISP (including default gateway).
Some services however require me to have my 'belgian' ip address. The easy
solution is of course to stop my VPN but hey, no way!
We at Inuits are using vagrant for a lot of use cases, neither you are a developer or a sysadmin you for sure will walk into it. Me, myself I do use it merely to automate the many different use cases asked by various projects. It took some time to get myself organized with this pretty nifty piece of software.
at one of my projects I was been asked to set up a private cloud for a validation platform. The whole idea behind this proof of concept is based on the flexibility to spin up and down certain instances providing some specific functionality so tests banks can be ran against them.
