Resources

Visual Studio comes in two editions—Professional and Enterprise.

Professional

Individual developers or small teams can use the powerful tools and features to create multi-tier applications across the web, cloud, and devices.

Monthly subscriptions offer you access to prior versions and new versions of Visual Studio and VSTS or if you prefer a Team Foundation Server licence and a user CAL licence to an enterprise-grade server for you and your team to share code, track work, and ship software.

Monthly subscriptions include the Visual Studio Professional IDE and Team Foundation Server client access licence.

This is ideal for developers with short-term projects and the need for high-grade development tools, or those that have already purchased the necessary licences for development or testing environment software. This option suits developers that only need the Visual Studio IDE and do not need any of the Visual Studio standard subscription (formerly known as MSDN) benefits.

Enterprise

An integrated, end-to-end solution for enterprise-class app development, with productivity tools, advanced services, and Enterprise DevOps capabilities to design, build, and deploy complex enterprise applications of any size.

Monthly subscriptions include the Enterprise IDE, access to Visual Studio Team Services and Team Foundation Server client access licence with the Test Manager, package management and private pipelines features.
