<h2>Modern, Automated</h2>
<p>
HashiCorp Packer is easy to use and automates the creation of any type of
machine image. It embraces modern configuration management by
encouraging you to use automated scripts to install and configure
the software within your Packer-made images. Packer brings machine
images into the modern age, unlocking untapped potential and opening
new opportunities.

<h2>Works Out of The Box</h2>
<p>
Out of the box Packer comes with support to build images for
Amazon EC2, CloudStack, DigitalOcean, Docker, Google Compute
Engine, Microsoft Azure, QEMU, VirtualBox, VMware, and more.
Support for more platforms is on the way, and anyone can add
new platforms via plugins.
