Visual Studio Online

One of the things we’re working on with Visual Studio Online, formerly known as Team Foundation Service, is to make it work really well with continuous integration and delivery. Here are some key features of Visual Studio Online:

• It supports both Git (distributed) and TFVC (centralized) source control.

• It offers an elastic build service, which means it dynamically creates build servers when they’re needed and takes them down when they’re done. You can automatically kick off a build when someone checks in source code changes, and you don’t have to allocate and pay for your own build servers that lie idle most of the time. The build service is free as long as you don’t exceed a certain number of builds. If you expect to do a high volume of builds, you can pay a little extra for reserved build servers.

• It supports continuous delivery to Azure.

• It supports automated load testing. Load testing is critical to a cloud app but is often neglected until it's too late. Load testing simulates heavy use of an app by thousands of users, enabling you to find bottlenecks and improve throughput—before you release the app to production.

• It supports team room collaboration, which facilitates real-time communication and collaboration for small agile teams.

• It supports agile project management.

For more information about the continuous integration and delivery features of Visual Studio Online, see Visual Studio Lab Management and Visual Studio Release Management. An application monitoring feature, Application Insights for Visual Studio Online, is in preview (available to try but not released for production use yet).

If you’re looking for a turn-key project management, team collaboration, and source control solution, check out Visual Studio Online. The service is free for up to five users, and you can sign up for it at
