comment How to build a Testing Virtual lab using VMs,Vagrant,Puppet,Chef etc
@wehappyfew Also hypervisors don't really need beasty hardware, the VM's they run may do. Obviously the more VM's you run at the same time and the higher spec the VM's the more grunt you need. At home I've got a quad core i7 with 12 Gb of RAM and that can happily run 3 or 4 VMs at the same time. Obviously not while I'm playing games or anything on the host machine etc.

@wehappyfew I don't know if virtual box has a way to automatically start, stop and reset virtual machines. If it does then it would work because that's really all you need for automatic testing on a VM. You could probably run some VMs on your laptop as long as they're not super big and you probably couldn't run multiple at the same time, but it should be powerful enough for a proof of concept.

What kind of virtualization software are you planning to use (Hyper-V, VMWare etc.)? If you can use Hyper-V then you may want to have a look at Sherlock, which I wrote for the test lab at my work.
