Whereas Docker is a frontend to Linux Containers, Vagrant is a frontend 
to VMs such as VirtualBox or VMWare. You can get it at 

Quick start once you have Vagrant (and Git) installed: (This should work 
identically on OS X, Linux, Windows)

     git clone https://github.com/named-data-education/vagrant.git
     cd vagrant
     vagrant up
     vagrant ssh
     # and inside the VM:
     sudo bash

If you need help, `vagrant -h` is your friend.
