Visual Studio Team Services Pricing

User Pricing

Many users can be added to your Visual Studio Team Services account for free:

Additional users are charged per user per month.

Additional Services

Additional services which can be used by your team are available and billed based on actual usage:

  • Build & Deployment - This task-based service enables you to author, queue, and monitor cross-platform builds using hosted agents (run by Microsoft) or private agents (run by you, allowing you to install custom software). With hosted agents, the compute costs are included. With private agents, you are paying to license the agent software. You can build for any language on any platform, and do multiple builds at once (by purchasing multiple agents) to get more throughput. To learn more, see our announcement.
  • Build (XAML) - Build definitions can be created using Visual Studio and can be run on Visual Studio Team Services. Builds can be configured to run on demand, at a specified interval, or for continuous integration (CI). Build is charged per minute for the actual amount of computing time it takes to build the project. This service will be retired by September 2016, and customers are encouraged to begin using the Build & Deployment service instead.
  • Cloud-based Load Testing - Create load tests in Visual Studio Ultimate 2013 or Visual Studio Enterprise 2015 (or later) and run them on Visual Studio Team Services. Load tests are measured and billed in virtual user minutes: the number of virtual users times the number of minutes that you configure for the load test run.

Visual Studio Marketplace

The new Visual Studio Marketplace provides options for acquiring Visual Studio Team Services “extensions”, which are additional features for your Visual Studio Team Services account. The testing capabilities that were previously included in the Advanced user plan, which was retired at the end of November 2015, are now available with the Test Manager extension.

The Visual Studio Marketplace also offers options for acquiring development tools and services through Visual Studio subscriptions. Customers can now rent Visual Studio Professional or Visual Studio Enterprise on a monthly basis. The Professional user plan is being transitioned automatically to the Visual Studio Professional monthly subscription.
