Azure DevOps Server 2019 Now at Release Candidate 2
January 22, 2019 / Kurt Mackie
Microsoft released Azure DevOps Server 2019 Release Candidate 2 (RC2), according to a Tuesday announcement. RC2 will be the last release before the server becomes a production-grade product, according to Microsoft's announcement. Azure DevOps Server 2019 RC2 is a renamed product that succeeds Microsoft's Team Foundation Server 2018 product. Organizations would typically use Azure DevOps Server 2019 for developer team collaborations, particularly when there's a need to have the server deployed locally, although it's possible to run the server on Azure infrastructure, too. Microsoft also offers its Azure DevOps service, a rebranding of Visual Studio Team Services, which provides the same developer team collaboration service but it's hosted from Microsoft's Azure datacenters.
