Is Vagrant suitable for production or just development

I’m doing some testing on a project and Vagrant has made it very easy for me to test different memory and CPU combinations to find lower limits. However, it’s got me thinking why don’t I use this for production. Is production a valid use for vagrant?

Can I use Vagrant with something like DigitalOcean or AWS?

There are plugins that allow Vagrant to target services like DigitalOcean. However, I would not recommend Vagrant for use in production environments. The main concern being around Vagrant doing a lot of convenient things for users in a development environment that need to be more closely controlled for a production environment. For example, Vagrant will automatically setup folder mounts, networks and setup an insecure private key.
