Drupal to Drupal Deployment

The main use case that people think of when using the Deploy module is Drupal to Drupal deployment. This is when you have one Drupal site and you're deploying content to another Drupal site.

These two Drupal sites could be two different sites that just share the same content, or they could be essentially the same site but separate staging and production environments.

How to make Union with different views or displays

Suppose you need to build a view that get fields of entity which have complex relationships with other entities and won't be happened in one view, But you could get the results for each relationship with an entity in one separate view, then it comes to your mind the idea if you could make a union between that two views(may be two displays) instead of writing a complex sql query that will be very hard to maintain in the future and if fields or relationships got altered!

Compared to Drupal 7

Drupal 7 already had an "automated cron system", but Drupal 8 moved it into a separate module to allow sites that don't use it at all not have any overhead from it.

Sharing your Virtual Machine to the World - Using Vagrant Share with VDD

One of Vagrant's most useful features is Vagrant Share. It let's you share the Vagrant Machine on your computer to the world in seconds via a temporary and unique URL that is generated on your free account at HashiCorp's Atlas.

You could visit the URL on your TV or smart phone to check how a new Drupal theme looks or pass the URL to your customer, for example, to show them your progress on their web site - all without having the expense of setting up hosting.
