Drone and Harness

Updated 1 month ago by Michael Cretzman

Drone over the past decade has flourished through its vibrant open source community with over 100m pulls on DockerHub, 50,000+ active users, and 250+ contributors.

Drone was acquired by Harness in 2020 and is now part of Harness CI.

Together with Drone, Harness provides a CI/CD platform that is both simple and powerful for engineers to deliver software.

In the near future, Harness CI will be built to eliminate engineer toil, scripting, version dependencies, time, cost, and complexity. We want to empower engineers to focus on delivering innovation for their business rather than manually building software delivery pipelines.
