Get the most comprehensive cloud experience
Bring the power of the cloud to all your applications.
Deploy easily and rapidly
Start developing for the cloud right from your workstation with simple Azure integration. Develop your apps locally—without signing into Azure—using emulators and quick-start templates. When you’re ready to try your app in the cloud, right-clicking on your project publishes it directly to Azure from Visual Studio.
Scale from your first user to your millionth, or billionth
Effortlessly scale up to meet increased demand, or scale down to cut costs. Deploy to data centers around the world. When you run your code in Azure, it’s ready to grow when you are.
Keep it secure
With Azure, security and simplicity go hand in hand. Build secure applications by leveraging Azure functionality such as Key Vault and claims-based identity services. Build your customers’ trust by storing their important data in a cloud that has earned more certifications than any other provider.
Fix problems before your users even notice
Diagnose and debug apps in your production environment without having to reproduce them locally by quickly attaching Visual Studio’s remote debugger. Debug errors that are hard to reproduce or that happen in deployment by recording specific events.
Bring your existing application, or build a new one
Tweak your existing .NET Framework application to enjoy all the great benefits of Azure. Or use lightweight .NET Core to build a new cloud-ready application that leverages all the latest technologies, such as microservices and serverless functions. Either way, it’s quick and easy to get started.
All from the Visual Studio IDE that you already know and love
Azure development tools are built in to Visual Studio. Use the same familiar debugger to troubleshoot your code, whether it is running directly on your workstation or in a container. Publish directly to Azure, or set up a CI/CD pipeline to build and deploy your code to the cloud. All without leaving the Visual Studio IDE.
