How to package, deploy, and manage microservices with a distributed systems platform
Quickly build, deploy and diagnose cloud-powered apps
Speed-up your project creation with predefined templates
Simultaneously log into multiple Azure accounts and access your subscriptions and resources. Quickly add Azure and other services to your cloud and device applications. Configure, diagnose and debug apps both locally and remotely. Deploy using a wizard or via automated scripts. Use Visual Studio Team Services for Continuous Integration/Continuous Deployment (CI/CD) pipeline.
Build and debug your applications in a locally hosted or Azure hosted Docker container
Develop, run and validate your applications in Docker containers locally. You can debug your application directly into a Docker container with quick turnaround for refreshing the app content without having to rebuild the container.
Connect to Azure from Visual Studio with Cloud Explorer
Create and configure Microsoft Azure environments. Log into multiple Azure accounts and access your subscriptions and resources. Use Cloud Explorer to view, manage, debug and diagnose your Azure resources.
Connect to and target any Microsoft cloud: public, private, hosted, and government.
Code your cloud

Create an application using the Azure Quickstart templates. Use Azure KeyVault to store secrets accessed by deployment templates. Create and edit Azure Resource Manager deployment templates and parameter files with different settings for multiple environments. Add resource snippets to your template. Create resource groups and deploy templates using a wizard or automated scripts. Visualize the resources and parameters using JSON outline. Leverage rich IntelliSense and validation in the JSON editor.
