August has certainly been heating up in the dog days of Summer here in the Northern Hemisphere. Our biggest announcement is the arrival of Drone, now Harness CI to the Harness Family. We could not be more excited about the opportunity to contribute back to an open-source community and further everyone’s Continuous Integration capabilities. Let’s take a quick look at what has been moving and shaking at Harness in August. 

Welcome Drone to the Harness Family

Drone, a popular open-source Cloud Native Continuous Integration platform is now part of the Harness Family as Harness CI. With the inception of Harness CI, you now have the ability to have true best of breed Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery capabilities under one roof.

Cloud Cost Management Recommendations

Figuring out what should be the first set of tunables to reduce cloud costs previously required granular usage data and cracking open your favorite spreadsheet program to chart historical usage. Those days are over now that Cloud Cost Management now has recommendations. Using actual usage data combining with your actual billing APIs, the recommendations can immediately start to save money with the next deployment. Can learn more about how to start to leverage the recommendations in the documentation.

Additional Update

  • Now from the Harness GraphQL API, you can create and setup Triggers directly from the API. Triggers automate deployments using a variety of conditions, such as Git events, new Artifacts, schedules, and the success of other Pipelines. Learn more about how to start creating Triggers from the API in the documentation

Last month we unveiled our first-ever industry conference, {Unscripted} which will be taking place on October 21st-22nd. The line up is starting to shape up with great speakers.
