HashiCorp's Packer is an open source tool for creating images with code for multiple platforms from a single code configuration. From a single code source, a user may provision Amazon Machine Images (AMIs) for AWS EC2, VMDK/VMX files for VMware ESXi, OVF exports for VirtualBox, and so on. Packer is lightweight, runs on every major operating system, and can even create multiple images in parallel. Packer does not replace configuration management like Ansible or Puppet. Configuration management tools might actually be used to help Packer build the image. Packer also works well with the HashiCorp tool, Terraform, which may be used to launch any images built with Packer.
