If you prefer to run your tests in a local environment rather than in the cloud, see Use a lab environment for your devops.

Cloud scalable

Generate hundreds of thousands of connections in minutes. Cloud-based load testing leveraging the power of Azure is like having a whole performance lab at your fingertips. Of course you can run your performance test from on-premises agents too!

Cloud scalable

Easily create powerful load tests

With authoring experiences in Visual Studio, Azure and Visual Studio Team Services you can quickly create load tests by specifying a website, referencing a JMeter test file or recording and replaying your actions. Run them or customize them using powerful tools in Visual Studio. You can even use existing unit or functional tests to generate load.
