This concludes the getting started guide for Test Kitchen. Hopefully you are now more comfortable with Test Kitchen's basic usage, fundamental concepts, and a feel for a testing workflow.

One question that users often raise is: "How can I get Test Kitchen to test multiple machines?". Usually this question really means: I want to test the interaction between machines, for example a webserver and a database. It's important to understand that this is not the kind of testing that Test Kitchen was designed for. Acceptance testing of infrastructure stacks is valuable, fascinating and difficult - for an approach which makes use of Test Kitchen as a library, see Leibniz.
