  • Question

  • Hi, I am trying to get hold of your cloud servers for Visual Studio Online Professional. Once I opt for this, do I need to install software in my local box? How I do development? in my local box or online? if it is online, what is the speed of internet?

  • Hi Sriramanat,

    You might have a misunderstanding about Visual Studio Online(formerly Team Foundation Service), it's a cloud-based service and with no infrastructure to manage. To work with Visual Studio Online, we need to install Team Explorer on local machine to connect to team projects that hosted in Visual Studio Online. See this page for more information about Visual Studio Online.

    As Charles said.  www.visualstudio.com is essentially Team Foundation Server 2013 in the cloud.

    It supports Version Control, Application Lifecycle Management etc.

    You will still need software installed locally to work with it e.g. Visual Studio Pro,  Team Explorer, Eclipse etc.

    Please do not be confused by the Visual Studio monica it is not an online software development environment, however, it can support most software development environments.
