Additional Services (Pay per use)

In Visual Studio Online, we also offer the following services. Charges are based on what you use each month account-wide.


Run your builds in the cloud using our infrastructure. Builds run on clean virtual machines and can incorporate unit tests or other checks to help you validate your apps before you send them live. Charges are based on the time it takes to run your builds, not on queuing time.

Load Testing

Perform load and performance tests from Visual Studio Ultimate 2013 or later using our infrastructure. You can simulate high traffic to your apps and see how they perform. Charges are a function of how many virtual users you specify in your test, times the duration of your test in minutes—we call these virtual user minutes (VUM).

  • $.05/minute for 61-1200 minutes (20 hours)

  • $.0004/VUM for 20,001-2M VUM
  • $.0002/VUM for 2,000,001-10M VUM
