Microsoft Dev Box

Streamline development with secure, ready-to-code workstations in the cloud.

Overview

Microsoft Dev Box gives you self-service access to high-performance, preconfigured, and ready-to-code cloud-based workstations called dev boxes. You can set up dev boxes with the tools, source code, and pre-built binaries specific to your project, so you can immediately start work. Whether you’re a developer, tester, or QA professional, you can use dev boxes in your day-to-day workflows.
