Microsoft Internal Usage of TFS: July – December 2011
We have heard many customers ask about the internal usage of TFS across Microsoft. Microsoft IT has an offering of TFS and I have included some data and trends of this IT offering throughout the second half of 2011 (July – December 2011). I plan to publish data like this every 6 months. Overall, we are continuing to have consistent growth in the TFS services hosted by Microsoft IT.
In November and December, one of our biggest instances, MSIT, was split into three different instances. During this exercise, MSIT did a big cleanup of old data on TFS. Due to this cleanup, we see some drop in the number of team projects, work items, and source files during November and December.

The Developer Division has one of the largest internal instances:
- DevDiv users in the last 14 days: 3551
- DevDiv size: 14.26 TB
This demonstrates the growth throughout the second half of 2011 for the full internal offering.
