With our new cloud subscriptions, you can rent Visual Studio, Azure DevOps, and the subscriber benefits you need without a long-term contract. Billing is handled through your Microsoft Azure subscription, supporting credit card payment, purchases through the Enterprise Agreement contract*, and Cloud Solution Provider partners. If you don’t have an Azure subscription yet, no worries—it’s free to set up and you can do this while you make your first purchase.
Microsoft no longer offers Visual Studio Professional Annual Subscription and Visual Studio Enterprise Annual Subscriptions in Cloud Subscriptions. There will be no change to existing customers experience and ability to renew, increase, decrease, or cancel their subscriptions.
All prices are in US dollars.
* Using your Enterprise Agreement will require the removal of spending limits, as monetary commitments cannot be used to purchase Visual Studio Cloud subscriptions.
