CV Methods Summary
Harness Continuous Verification has two methods, Deployment Verification and 24/7 Service Guard. You can use both or either of the methods. Both verification 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.
The following Webinar provides an introduction to how Harness Continuous Delivery leverages unsupervised machine learning to verify production deployments for customers using their APM and log data.
24/7 Service Guard
24/7 Service Guard verifies the live, production application 24/7. 24/7 Service Guard verification is set up in a Harness Environment. For more information, see 24/7 Service Guard.
For an overview of 24/7 Service Guard, see the Harness Blog post, Harness 24/7 Service Guard Empowers Developers with Total Operational Control.

Harness Eliminates False Positives
For the past 10 months at Harness, we have been analyzing application log events to help customers detect anomalies and verify their production deployments. To do this, our algorithms have been based on textual similarity and occurrence frequencies. Harness has native integration for popular log aggregation tools such as Splunk, ELK, Sumo Logic and so on.
One of our early customers, Build.com, used to verify production deployments with 5-6 team leads manually analyzing monitoring data and log files. This process took each team lead 60 minutes, and occurred 3 times a week. That’s 1,080 minutes, or 18 hours, of team lead time spent on verification. With Harness, Build.com reduced verification time to just 15 minutes, and also enabled automatic rollback to occur in production.
AppDynamics announced a new partnership with Harness to help customers embrace continuous delivery and understand the business impact of every application deployment.
The most requested monitoring integrations from customers over the past year were: AppDynamics, New Relic, Dynatrace, and Datadog. Fifth most popular was Prometheus, the open-source software (OSS) project.
Harness announced support for Dynatrace to accompany our AppDynamics and New Relic APM support. Today, our Datadog support is now GA.
