Scaling Beyond Jenkins

Today, software delivery solutions need to quickly and easily scale alongside organizations and teams advancing their software delivery capabilities. Not every architecture solution is designed to scale with you. Consider what it means to support your organization as application workloads scale horizontally and vertically. Use Harness to quickly deploy artifacts into production and into the hands of your users. Harness integrates with Jenkins to manage your CD process.

What are the challenges posed by Jenkins?

Use cases that surround Continuous Delivery are challenging for a platform like Jenkins, which has been designed for Continuous Integration. Items that are post-build, e.g. deployment, verification, and additional operational steps such as rollbacks, are challenging in Jenkins and need to be heavily scripted out.

How Harness supports Customer Migrations from Jenkins.

Harness has the ability to natively call Jenkins jobs. As a wrapper around Jenkins jobs, customers (if needed) can start to decompose lengthy deployment scripts in Jenkins and just have Jenkins focus on build-centric steps. By leveraging Harness CI, Jenkins can potentially be removed altogether.
