Connecting Technology and Business.

Using the Power of the cloud to develop applications

Visual Studio Online is the fastest and easiest way to plan, build, and ship software across a variety of platforms. Get up and running in minutes on our cloud infrastructure without having to install or configure a single server.

Unlimited private projects using Git or TFVC

Create private team projects accessible from anywhere. Use Team Foundation Version Control (TFVC) for traditional centralized version control, or Git, if you prefer a distributed approach. You can even mix-and-match on different team projects, making it easy to host your entire organization on a single account.

Track everything in one place

Capture new features, bugs, and or other work items into backlogs that are great for teams practicing Scrum, Kanban, or their own agile process. Use customizable task boards to track team progress, while agile portfolio management enables larger groups to track work across all their teams.

Cloud-powered continuous integration and deployment

Catch quality issues earlier by using build definitions that automatically compile and test your applications in the cloud, either on-demand or after any change in code. Track build health over time with graphs and customizable dashboards. When tests pass, automatically deploy updated websites directly to Microsoft Azure.

Gain insight into your applications (preview)

Know more about your users and potential issues they may encounter with rich availability, performance, and usage information from your apps—whether they run on a device, your server, in Microsoft Azure, a third-party cloud provider, or some combination of these.

Use your favorite development tool

Access your projects, code, and work items through an integrated experience within Visual Studio or through a free plugin for Eclipse. Support for any Git client (including Xcode) and a modern web browser interface ensure that no matter what development tool you use, Visual Studio Online can tailor to your team's needs.

Scalable pricing that's small-team friendly

Teams of up to five are free, so create unlimited private team projects with as many repos, work items, and bugs as you need without any additional costs. Additional users have straightforward pricing, and shared resources like builds and load tests have included monthly amounts that can be scaled as your demands grow.
