The mostly integrated CI/CD tool

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

Reason for choosing Harness

Harness is much more robustly and have much more functions to our devops day a day

Reasons for switching to Harness

We had lost our dev who has developed all Jenkins scripts and the change to Harness was amazing because we don’t need to script anymore

Harness for the win!

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.

Reason for choosing Harness

When we had questions our Service rep never responded. Well he did once, two months later after we decided to go with Harness

Reasons for switching to Harness

Program has a strong point in strategic development tasks.

Although it handles several deployment volumes at the same time, I would say that it is missing something to surpass the previous programs that I have mentioned, perhaps a more refined solution that is easier to learn in the curve as I previously mentioned.

PROS

I like it, Harness simplifies and automates complex processes, allowing engineers to focus on more strategic tasks. Regarding security, the program offers integrated security features that ensure that only verified and approved versions of applications are deployed to production.

CONS

The program gives me displeasure as it has a steep learning curve, especially for engineers accustomed to other CD tools. This has slowed down the learning process and in this regard, more costs are required. The program is necessary for projects. specific and we could not discontinue it completely.

Reasons for switching to Harness

It generated very slow feedback, it did not have good systems developed for it.

Brilliant concept, updates occasionally crash JVM, price gougers

PROS

The customer support is generally very good. The concept is outstanding. Being able to record runtime state in production for post-mortem debugging is utterly amazing.

CONS

There are a number of critical application issues described below, but the chief con of Overops is the price. This is *at least* an order of magnitude more than the value that Overops provides, and is a kick in the teeth for surely most startup-level organisations, particularly ones like ours that helped them grow their business. There were at least 3 occasions in 2+ years of use that Overops (previously Takipi) released updates to their agent (which runs in our production JVM) that caused the whole jvm to segfault. This is a pretty poor track record (and it's more than a little ironic that this happens with a *software quality tool*). In all that time we never succeeded in getting a noise-free or complete exception notification channel between Overops and our Slack installation. It would fail to notify about most errors, and routinely report errors we had attempted to filter out. This persisted despite numerous sessions with app engineers.

Vendor Response

Hi Joseph - thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. Although, we are disappointed you had a poor experience with our software back in 2018 and would love an opportunity to show you how we've made dramatic improvements since then. Please reach out at support@overops.com to schedule a walk through.

Overops: Great software, great support

Overops is easy to use and understand. If configured correctly, it identifies the errors and problems that engineers should find most important. The UI is straight forward as well.

PROS

As an SRE, it helps me to be able to see what errors are being thrown from any particular application. I help manage a stack of at least a hundred microservices, so it is impossible for me to have an in-depth understanding of every single one. If Overops detects an error, it immediately shows me exactly where in the source code this error has occurred, allowing me to communicate clearly to the team responsible for the application as to where they need improvement.

CONS

The deployment process for this software was challenging. We had to engineer a lot of custom solutions to keep it running. For example, we used a hybrid approach (some infrastructure in our cloud, some in Overops') and we had to use a handful of lambdas to facilitate the storage and installation of the Overops collector agent and monitoring agent. If all of this could be encapsulated in a single Cloudformation or Terraform document, it could be deployed easier.

Vendor Response

Thank you for the review Andrew! We really appreciate you as a customer and are so glad you find value in our product and customer support.
