The following is mostly notes for myself, when I followed the Consul get started guide (by Hashi corp).
How I created a Vagrant instance on mac (or be more precise, Vagrant Cluster (github))
I am interested in the Vault also. Since I am not familiar with Docker, I think this time around I would just do the Vault GSG on Vagrant or on Mac (last time around I was attempting to run before I can walk). I am interested in the security aspects of Vault.
An unrelated topic, also interesting to me, is the real time notification.
