TFS 2010 hosting is available in our U.S. and UK data centers. Here are a few of the features and improvements.
TFS 2010 offers cutting-edge version control that seamlessly integrates with Visual Studio. With support for branching and merging, shelving, labeling, concurrent checkout/checkin policies and the association of checkins with work items, your development team can flexibly work in their optimal work style.
Work Item/Bug Tracking
TFS 2010 includes an integrated work item tracking system. The work item can consist of requirements, tasks, bugs, and issues. The work item system is also extensible so you can define your own parameters.
Microsoft SPLA Licensing
With TFS 2010, Microsoft changed their licensing model which introduced the TFS Basic and TFS Full skus as well as lowered the Service Provider Licensing Agreement (SPLA) licensing fees (which we as a host must pay Microsoft monthly). TFS Basic provides the basic source control and work item tracking. The TFS Full sku adds SharePoint and Reporting. What this change means to you is that the pricing for TFS hosting can be significantly reduced. This allows us to deliver TFS hosting at a much lower rate than was possible with previous TFS versions.
Streamlined Flow of Data
TFS 2010 improves the flow of data across your entire development and project management teams by centralizing the project artifacts repository facilitating in-context collaboration.
Custom Process Templates
Our implementation of TFS 2010 hosting allows you to use existing agile methodology templates including SCRUM or the Microsoft native Agile Methodology, or choose a third party process template, or use your own custom template.
