Harness Expands Its Offerings with the Launch of Harness GitOps
Harness, the software delivery platform founded by AppDynamics co-founder and CEO Jyoti Bansal, has been expanding its offerings since its launch in 2017. Originally focused on continuous code deployment, Harness has now branched out to include continuous integration, feature flags, cloud cost management, security testing orchestration, chaos engineering, and more. However, one notable gap in its offerings has been the lack of its own Git repositories. That’s about to change with the launch of Harness GitOps.
Bringing GitOps to Harness
GitOps has gained popularity in recent years as a way to manage and automate software delivery workflows through Git repositories. It provides organizations with the ability to manage infrastructure and application deployments using familiar Git concepts such as pull requests, branches, and version control.
Harness recognized the importance of GitOps in modern software delivery and its benefits for teams looking to streamline their processes and improve efficiency. With the launch of Harness GitOps, the platform now offers its users integrated Git repository capabilities, allowing them to manage their code and deployments in a single, streamlined workflow.
The Benefits of Harness GitOps
Harness GitOps brings several benefits to software delivery teams. Firstly, by providing built-in Git repositories, teams no longer need to rely on external services for version control and code management. This simplifies their workflows and reduces the need for multiple tools.
Secondly, Harness GitOps offers a unified view of all deployments and changes across the organization. Teams can easily track and manage their code changes, deployments, and infrastructure updates in one place. This visibility improves collaboration and accelerates the delivery of new features and updates.
Thirdly, Harness GitOps seamlessly integrates with other features of the Harness platform. Users can leverage the power of features like continuous integration, security testing orchestration, and chaos engineering, all while using GitOps workflows. This integration further streamlines the software delivery process and enables teams to adopt a more DevOps-centric approach.
Expanding the Harness Ecosystem
The launch of Harness GitOps marks another step in the expansion of the Harness ecosystem. By adding Git repository capabilities to its platform, Harness is becoming a more comprehensive solution for the entire software delivery lifecycle.
Previously, teams using Harness had to rely on external Git repository providers to manage their code. This meant managing multiple tools and potentially experiencing integration challenges. With Harness GitOps, teams can now have everything they need in one place, eliminating the need for external integrations and simplifying their workflows.
Harness GitOps not only brings convenience and simplicity but also enhances security. By using built-in Git repositories, teams can ensure that their code is always stored securely within the Harness platform. This reduces the risk of unauthorized access or data breaches associated with external repositories.
The Future of Harness
With the launch of Harness GitOps, the future of the platform looks promising. By continuously expanding its offerings, Harness is demonstrating a commitment to meeting the evolving needs of software delivery teams.
While the addition of GitOps capabilities is a significant milestone for Harness, it is likely that the platform will continue to grow and integrate with additional tools and technologies. Harness has already proven its ability to stay ahead of the curve by incorporating features such as continuous integration, cloud cost management, and chaos engineering into its platform.
Harness provides a scalable and flexible solution for organizations of all sizes. Whether a small startup or a large enterprise, Harness caters to the needs of diverse teams and enables them to deliver high-quality software faster.
