About Harness

Harness Continuous Delivery is a cloud-based and on-premise Continuous Delivery-as-a-Service (CDaaS) platform that helps DevOps engineers automate software deployment, testing, and rollback of code in production. It provides blue or green, canary, rolling, and multi-service templates, facilitating the creation of CD pipelines.

The application leverages artificial intelligence and machine learning technology to auto-detect performance and quality regression for canary deployments and rollback to previous versions. Software engineers can build pipeline templates as code using YAML and utilize webhooks to trigger deployments across environments. Supervisors can also handle self-service deployments and set up role-based permissions for team members. It also provides a host of other features such as real-time notifications, event-based triggers, IP whitelisting, approval flows, log analysis, and more.

Harness Continuous Delivery offers integration with multiple third-party applications including Bamboo, Google Cloud, Docker, JFrog Artifactory, CloudWatch, Datadog, Sumo Logic, and Splunk. Engineers can generate reports on mean time to repair (MTTR), lead time, deployment frequency, change failure rate, and more. It also supports single sign-on (SSO), audit trail, OAuth, and various authentication mechanisms.

The mostly integrated CI/CD tool

Reviewed on 2021/10/06

Pros

The tool is completely integrated with other devop tools, making easy to work and deploy what you need and if someone goes wrong he will told you too.

Cons

The tool is upgrading and developing more features day after day and some functions isn’t finished yet

From shopping to inception it's been an absolute blast. Lucky, [SENSITIVE CONTENT] have helped every step of the way to transition to the dumpster fire of Jenkins we had, to the new hotness for our CI/CD.

Pros

1) It's not Jenkins,
2) ease of use and setup
3) empowerment for developers to be self service
4) pipeline and workflow malleability
5) no plugins to maintain
6)not jenkins

Cons

Only con is their can be some feature requests to be done (non product impacting) but, they jump right on those. It's pretty cool to grow with harness. That's literally the only thing I can think of.

A great tool. We implemented it to save the development time on building out a pipeline using other tools like Jenkins. We managed to get a production ready pipeline up and running within a month.

Support from Harness is excellent and they are always there to help when required.

Pros

The out of the box functionality does as exactly as it says on the tin. No need to worry about how to implement a deployment method for the infrastructure you are running on. Harness simply lists the deployment methods and the infrastructure type you are deploying to and it just works.

Cons

Some of the behind the scenes configuration is slightly confusing (e.g. Harness delegate profiles) but once set-up correctly it works like a charm. Adding bespoke scripting to pipelines can be tricky with selecting the correct configuration options to run smoothly. When things go wrong, the debugging could be improved.

Decisive for performance and time to market

Reviewed on 2021/10/06

Pros

Easy, quick setup. And the value it brings to development teams in putting secure software into production.

Cons

Some things like reusing pipelines could be easier to setup.
