DevOps with Harrow: simple, reliable, repeatable


Get the big picture

Our dashboards are the essence of your DevOps processes. See at a glance if your jobs are running smoothly and how reliable they are. Observe, which Git commits from which repositories are included, tested, pending or already deployed.

Essential information shows you a tonne of valuable information. Who can see which task, who can run it, when does it run automatically, which code it accesses, when did it last run, when will it run next, and which external and periodic triggers are configured.

Effortless documentation

No more digging through poorly maintained documentation to stay productive. Keep detailed logs of what tasks have been run, easily share links to specific sections of logs with your team to aid in debugging.

You can use Harrow to:

  • Run the unit tests of a JavaScript application and trigger the staging deployment if sucessful.
  • Deploy the JavaScript application to Amazon S3 after building it with Gulp.
  • Integration test both repositories, and trigger the deploy to staging when successful.
  • Deploy a Ruby on Rails application over SSH to the root server.

and much moreā€¦


Frequently Asked Questions

Can I run Harrow on my own infrastructure?

Harrow is available as a cloud solution, a private cloud solution, or as a virtual machine package (KVM) you can run on your own infrastructure. Harrow’s simplest self-hosted solution relies on nested virtualization; however a separate virtualization host can be easily provisioned to improve performance.

Does Harrow support my favorite framework and language runtime?

Harrow literally gives each of your tasks a root-VM which can be used to run any software. We provide support for common runtimes and frameworks which make builds faster by saving you the trouble of installing certain packages, but anything can be installed in our VMs.

What does Harrow need VMs for?

We use VMs to provide security and repeatability for your tasks. We have a basic image which contains a lot of common useful tools and packages, and your build script can install anything, start any services, work with Docker or other container technology, connect to external services, join a VPN and more. The VMs are securely destroyed after use, and never re-used.

Can Harrow replace Travis, Jenkins, CircleCI, Drone, Semaphore, etc?

Harrow provides all the features and more of these continuous integration (CI) tools. What Harrow provides is a superset of CI functionality. The listed tools might be easier to setup, or fit certain use-cases better, but Harrow offers compelling replacement in most cases.

Does Harrow replace tools such as Chef, Puppet, Ansible and Salt?

Harrow does not aim to replace these tools, but offers a great platform to automate processes for push-orienteted tools such Ansible, masterless Puppet or Chef-solo by triggering provisioning processes after certain events, such as a successful test run.

Does Harrow support Docker?

In Harrow you can build your own, or pull down community containers to provide services and servers for integration tests or as part of your own container build process. You can push and pull containers to and from private registries. Harrow has many plugins which are also Docker containers, so that you can build your own.
