    Yes it can! If I were trying to exactly match a production environment that uses Docker containers, then running Docker as a Vagrant provider would be an excellent solution.

    My point, however, is that I don’t need to use Vagrant. Using Docker as a provider for Vagrant means that Vagrant needs to spin up a VM to run the Docker daemon in. Alternatively, I could just skip the Vagrant VM and have Docker run natively on my OS as I do in the article above.
