To make sure your Perl applications really install and work in new environments, they need to be tested in VMs created from scratch. But unless test and staging environments can be spun up quickly, automatically, and reproducably, that's not going to happen. Vagrant, a VM command line frontend, and provisioning tools like Puppet/Chef/Salt let you store your test VM configurations in your source control system alongside with your project, and make sure they evolve in lockstep.
