Summary

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.

  • WOW, great, keep up the good work

  • Why do the graphs go down? Total Stored Files and Total work items for example.

  • Hi Allen,

    In November and December, MSIT (one of the largest users of TFS) did a big cleanup of old team projects.  They deleted a lot of old or unused team projects which caused the total number of VC files and work items to decrease during those months.
