Ambassador Developer Control Plane Announced
May 06, 2021

Ambassador Labs announced the new Ambassador Developer Control Plane (DCP), whichgives developers the ability to manage the entire modern software development lifecycle for Kubernetes environments using tools and processes that are familiar to them.

Ambassador DCP is designed to address the challenges developers face managing a complex development lifecycle in a fragmented, cloud native ecosystem and integrates the development, deployment, and production infrastructure necessary to code, ship, and run modern applications with greater speed and confidence.

As development teams adopt Kubernetes, they are challenged not only by a growing list of complex technologies but also an expanded role that now includes shipping and operating the systems they build. Built on major open source Cloud Native Computing Foundation projects including Envoy, Emissary-ingress, Argo, and Telepresence, the Ambassador Developer Control Plane is an integrated solution that manages the cloud native infrastructure that developers use to code, ship, and run applications for Kubernetes environments. Ambassador DCP unlocks developer productivity for local and remote environments, enables rapid human-centric service discovery across organizations, and lets entire teams safely deploy and manage applications for production.

“We are relentlessly focused on improving the experience for application developers and enabling them to easily and effectively manage the full cloud native development process,” said Richard Li, CEO and Founder, Ambassador Labs. “Building and releasing cloud native applications now requires developers to not just code, but to also ship and run that code. The Ambassador Developer Control Plane (DCP) cuts through these complexities by integrating the tools necessary to successfully manage the modern cloud development loop. Built on our hugely popular open source toolchain for Kubernetes, the Ambassador DCP empowers cloud native developers to code, ship, and run their software faster and better than ever.”

Built entirely on Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) open source technologies, the Ambassador Developer Control Plane (DCP) is designed to help developers control all elements of the cloud native development workflow by integrating the development, deployment, and runtime infrastructure necessary to code, ship and run services across Kubernetes.

Key features and benefits include:

- Writing and testing more code. Powered by Ambassador Labs’ Telepresence, a CNCF project, Ambassador DCP allows developers to quickly set up a development environment, and instantly code and test locally against remote services and datastores. Additionally, users can create shared development environments to foster better collaboration among a team as more code can be deployed with less maintenance.

- Safely ship updates to production. Powered by Argo, a CNCF project, Ambassador DCP allows any developer to use canary releases to incrementally rollout code updates. This approach minimizes the blast radius of any code error.

- Running and monitoring services with confidence. Powered by Edge Stack, developers can observe and optimize traffic to their services, ensuring high availability and scale. Edge Stack is powered by Envoy Proxy and Emissary Ingress, which are both CNCF projects.

- Ensuring optimal uptime. Easily discover what services are running across your environments and insight into the health of the workflow with real-time alerts for fast incident response.

- Compatibility with existing infrastructure. Ambassador DCP works with any standard Kubernetes distribution, continuous integration system, and a myriad of observability solutions.
