You need to support the challenges of agility and scale in
your development and testing activities. How can you develop multiple
application versions concurrently? How can you test at the scale demanded
in production? How can you find answers quickly given accelerated
Of course, MSDN subscriptions are known for access to Visual Studio and other
software you need, but there's much more to help you as a developer. For
example, MSDN includes a monthly credit to use Microsoft Azure to support your
development and test agility, with no credit card required. Add to that
Visual Studio Online services, support incidents for those tougher issues,
online training options, and a good deal more. It's all to help you get

Microsoft is introducing a new Azure service to make the management of your test and development environments easier to manage and control. Running test/dev in Azure provides for improved agility, cost savings and the ability to try new things without huge investments in time and infrastructure. Azure integrates directly with the dev tools you use today and even offers Visual Studio Online to leverage the cloud for improved code control, load testing and collaboration.
With this service, you'll be able to:
Quickly provision development and test environments
- Minimize waste with quotas and policies
- Set automated shutdowns to minimize costs
- Create a VM in a few clicks with reusable templates
- Get going quickly using VMs from pre-created pools
- Build Windows and Linux environments
