What is Visual Studio Online?
Cloud collaboration tools for the entire team
It’s not an IDE, it’s everything else. Visual Studio Online provides a set of cloud-powered collaboration tools that work with your existing IDE or editor, so your team can work effectively on software projects of all shapes and sizes.
Unlimited, private, secure
Store and collaborate on code anywhere with private team projects backed by version control. Use Team Foundation Version Control (TFVC) for one massively scalable repo, or multiple Git repositories for maximum flexibility.
Tools for agile teams
Kanban, Scrum, dashboards
Be agile, on your terms. Capture, prioritize, and track work with backlogs and customizable Kanban boards. Work items link directly to code to ensure transparency, and can be used to build rich dashboards for easy reporting.
Build, validate, deploy
Catch quality issues early with continuous integration (CI) builds that compile and test your application automatically after any code change. Use continuous delivery to automatically deploy applications or websites that pass tests.
Languages and tools
Eclipse, Xcode, and more
Use your favorite language and development tool. Version control supports any language, as well as any Git client (including Xcode). Java teams can access code and work items through a free plugin for Eclipse – and run continuous integration builds based on config files from Ant or Mavin.
Open and extensible
We make it easy to integrate your custom tool or third-party service with Visual Studio Online using open standards like REST APIs and OAuth 2.0. We also support a set of ready-made integrations that can be easily configured from your account dashboard.
Uptime, identity, data sovereignty
Built on the enterprise-grade infrastructure of Microsoft Azure, and backed by a 99.9% SLA, your data can be stored in local datacenters to increase performance and safeguard compliance. Support for Azure Active Directory (AAD) makes it easy to manage entire organizations.
Apps, APIs, web sites
Make sure your code can stay up and running with cloud-based load testing. Generate tests from regions around the world to simulate the scale of hundreds of thousands of users.
