A single Team Foundation Server 2008 instance can support thousands of developers working on hundreds of projects. But what if you need even more than that? How do you drive increased uptime and availability of your server to keep your developers productive? Team Foundation Server can already scale up with better hardware, but how do you scale out with additional machines? Mario Rodriguez is part of the team coming up with solutions to these problems.

Mario walks us through the new architecture for Team Foundation Server 2010 being delivered as an overall effort known as Enterprise Team Foundation Server Management.

      This all sounds excellently. Here is where I hope this is going: Please offer hosted TFS. It seems that you are doing a lot of the groundwork for enabling this. Ideally this would be done under the same group that does offer this for Sharepoint and Exchange already, given that you would have the Sharepoint part covered already then, plus all the identity stuff would also already be covered.

      I love TFS, but really I don't want to bother with the admin of it at all, and so a hosted version would be fantastic, in particular also for smaller shops for either TFS 2008 or the new stuff is simply too much overhead.
