Visual Studio 2012 – Licensing Information & Whitepapers

October 24, 2012 1 comment

Microsoft has recently released a whitepaper outlining information regarding the licensing of Visual Studio and how this relates to users and the Team Foundation Server (TFS) environment. Licensing can be mind blowing at the best of times, so hopefully this white paper helps you out.

Below is a section taken from the whitepaper to give you an overview before downloading the files located below.

Microsoft Visual Studio 2012 provides a comprehensive, highly flexible set of application lifecycle management (ALM) tools. With the introduction of Visual Studio 2012, Microsoft made significant changes to simplify the product line and make improvements in Visual Studio Team Foundation Server licensing.   Important new capabilities have been introduced,
including storyboarding, end user feedback, sprint planning and backlog management, production load testing, use of IntelliTrace in production, and more.

The remainder of this paper provides an overview of the Visual Studio product line and the licensing requirements for those products in common deployment scenarios.

Visual Studio 2012 Licensing Overview
With Visual Studio 2012 there are essentially two things for which you purchase licenses:
1.  Users.
2.  The Visual Studio Team Foundation Server environment.



Note: Same file to download but in different file formats of .docx, .pdf & .xps
