So the other day, I wanted to quickly check something in BigCouch and thanks to Vagrant, chef(-solo) and a couple cookbooks — courtesy of Cloudant — this was exceptionally easy.
I’ve asked myself many times what is the easiest way to experiment with all these NoSQL databases and frequently changing versions. So far my “recipe” running on Mac OS has been homebrew. But this combination of automated virtual machines sounds quite compelling. Any other suggestions? Should I prefer Puppet to Chef?
