cloud-init + multipass


Hi cloud-init,

A common questions for cloud-init is how to quickly test a cloud-config.
For those of you launching lots of Ubuntu VMs for development purposes
or need a quick way to try out a YAML cloud-config with the nocloud
datasource consider trying out multipass [1]

Multipass is a quick and easy way to launch VMs running Ubuntu. While
still in beta, multipass now supports launching VMs with YAML
cloud-config. I posted a quick blog post [2] with a few more details if
you are interested.
