    Visual Studio Team Service is the new name for Visual studio online and is accessible at visualstudioonline.com. It is an online service like GitHub (see your other question - https://forums.asp.net/t/2141581.aspx?+git+and+github+git+local+repository+on+azure) that provides git-based version control. They also offer Team Foundation Version Control.

    The main difference between VSTS and GitHub is that with VSTS, your free repositories can be kept private. GitHub only offer private repositories to paying customers,

    Hi,

    You had a name change at some point but basically :
    - you have a on "premise" version that you can install on your own machine
    - Visual Studio Online being the "cloud version" (I believe both were named "Visual Studio Team Services" as they are basically the same and then they switch to "Online" to clearly stress when they refer to the "online" version)

    Edit: As you are in an Azure forum you perhaps saw the option to subscribe to the "online" version (for example updates to the service will be deployed by MS) or to use a VM Template including this service and then manage this yourself.
