If you need to access multiple VSTS accounts, for example when working on projects for different customers, then buying a Visual Studio subscription can be an attractive alternative to paying for those users separately in each VSTS account.
Each paid user in your VSTS account also gets a TFS client access license (CAL). This lets you buy monthly access to TFS for your team. Learn about TFS, or learn how to buy TFS access
Build & Release
Create, queue, and monitor cross-platform builds and releases with this task-based service. Use Hosted Pipelines to run builds and deploy releases with Microsoft-managed agents, or use Private Pipelines to run builds and deploy releases on machines that you manage, running agent software from Microsoft. Each pipeline lets you run 1 build or deploy 1 release at a time.
Each VSTS account includes 1 free Private Pipeline plus 1 additional Private Pipeline for each active Visual Studio Enterprise subscriber that is a member of the account. You can buy more as needed.
