Packer is another great Open Source tool from HashiCorp. Packer is a tool for creating machine and container images for multiple platforms from a single source configuration.
A Packer configuration can be executed locally, but also on the Atlas Cloud environment. It supports all kind of different provisioners/hypervisors. And amazingly, this can all be done with a free account. Our new base vagrant box is now build by the Atlas Cloud environment and is now available in the Vagrant box repository.
The Packer build script and more information can be found on the GitLab project repository, ‘vagrant-base-boxes‘. This repository will be maintained and the README.md will provide all basic and general information about the repository and usage.
