Team Foundation Server and VS Online adoption at Microsoft

Brian Harry

Someone asked me in a blog comment recently to post an update on internal adoption – the last one was almost a year ago.  I’m going to keep it reasonably short.

The best summary is adoption continues to grow.  TFS on-prem is growing slowly because it’s already huge.  VS Online usage is growing more rapidly but is still far smaller than TFS on-prem.

Here’s the latest TFS on-prem summary from our IT team that runs the production TFS servers:

May 2015
Unique users 61,777
TPCs 1,008
Projects 19,918
Work items 75,432,127
Source files 411,609,386
Builds/month 479,515
Test cases 11,859,007

Here’s a month by month trend of VS Online adoption by major organization.  The numbers look a little larger than they really are because adoption is still early and people are using only subsets of the functionality or using VS Online as a supplement to on-prem TFS.  I don’t have counts of files, work items, etc for VS Online yet.  We aren’t tracking it at that level yet, but we will.
