Harness Enhances Support for AWS ECS
December 7, 2020
integrated with Amazon Elastic Container Service (ECS) Container Orchestration,
enabling mission-critical applications to run in Docker containers with less
scripting and redundancy, and out-of-the-box deployment strategies. These new
features give Amazon ECS customers the same functionality as those who have
adopted Kubernetes, or the Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (EKS). Last year,
Harness became available for purchase on Amazon Web Services (AWS) Marketplace.
Now, Amazon customers have unparalleled choice when it comes to radically
simplified CI/CD services running anywhere on the AWS platform.
Reusable Task Definitions – Harness allows engineers to pull ECS Task Definitions from git repositories, so they can 'templatize', reuse, and personalize Task Definitions across teams to reduce toil and effort around ECS container orchestration.
Complex Release Strategies – Customers can leverage out-of-the-box release strategies like Blue/Green and Canary, with automated verification and rollback capabilities so teams no longer have to manually manage failure scenarios or downtime.
Ephemeral ECS Tasks – Harness now has native support for running ECS Tasks that are short lived and terminated by ECS upon completion. This is useful for customers running containerized DB Migration Workloads or Smoke Testing Workloads. No more scripting those steps, a user can bring a container for Harness to deploy it natively as a task with their ECS Service.
