Team Foundation Server on Azure IaaS Guidance Released
For the last few months I’ve been involved with the Microsoft ALM Rangers on the TFS on IaaS project. The guidance provides details on how to configure and test TFS on Azure Infrastructure.
TFS on IaaS is the ability to get the benefits of TFS without having to have on-premise hardware or virtual machines to manage. You may think this is the same as Visual Studio Online (VSO). A major difference is that
- you don’t have access to the underlying TFS databases with VSO
- you can’t use SharePoint with VSO
- you don’t have Reporting Services reports with VSO
There a cost benefit analysis you should perform to determine is TFS on IaaS is right for you.
