When Does Harness Verify Deployments?
This topic covers Harness' two complementary verification components, Deployment Verification and 24/7 Service Guard.
Sections in this topic:
Short- and Long-Term Verification
Harness' Continuous Verification enables you to verify your services' health over two timeframes. At deployment time, Harness' Deployment Verification feature validates your artifacts, and then validates the individual service instances to which you've deployed.
Over the long term, Harness' 24/7 Service Guard feature continuously validates your service as a whole.
You can use both or either of these verification types. Both types use the Verification Providers you set up in Harness.
Deployment Verification verifies the first 15 minutes of deployments. Deployment verification is set up using a Harness Workflow.
For an excellent example of Deployment Verification, see the Harness Blog post, How Build.com Rolls Back Production in 32 Seconds.
This video Webinar covers how Harness Continuous Delivery leverages unsupervised machine learning to verify production deployments, based on users' APM and log data.
24/7 Service Guard
Harness' 24/7 Service Guard feature verifies your live, production application continuously. You set up 24/7 Service Guard verification in a Harness Environment.
Here's a 2-minute video summary of how 24/7 Service Guard works:
