Ambassador Labs Releases Managed Developer Control Plane
June 23, 2021

Ambassador Labs announced the Ambassador Developer Control Plane 1.0 (DCP), the company’s new managed developer control plane solution that lets developers code, ship, and run apps using Kubernetes faster and easier than ever before.

Ambassador DCP provides a new managed cloud UI and integrated toolchains built entirely on top of Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) open source projects. With Ambassador DCP, developers and platform teams can intuitively view and manage their organization’s apps and services across development, deployment, and production environments - without the burden of stitching together Kubernetes tools or compromising productivity.

Ambassador Labs also unveiled two new developer programs designed specifically to elevate hands-on learning with Kubernetes (Summer of Kubernetes) and recognize top community contributors worldwide (Ambassador Community Advocate program).

“Kubernetes has become an industry-standard and organizations are now faced with a dizzying ecosystem of cloud native open source tools. To deal with increasingly complex tool sprawl, companies have resorted to gluing together various homegrown systems to improve the Kubernetes developer experience,” said Richard Li, CEO & Founder, Ambassador Labs. “A modern developer control plane is necessary to accelerate Kubernetes adoption with less complexity and our mission is to put one in the hands of every developer and at the heart of every organization.”

Ambassador Labs now delivers a turnkey Developer Control Plane built on major CNCF open-source projects. It includes:

- New Ambassador Developer Control Plane UI. Now available as a managed solution, the Ambassador DCP integrates the Service Catalog, source control, Kubernetes, and key CNCF technologies in a new UI so that developers can view and manage all their Kubernetes services across the entire development lifecycle.

- Telepresence Support for Docker & MacOS. Telepresence now runs in more places where developers operate, with support for container-based continuous integration systems, macOS, and Linux. In addition, developers can now use Ambassador DCP to manage Telepresence across platform teams.

- Canary Releases with Argo (Developer Preview). Development teams can now use the Ambassador DCP to manage canary releases to quickly and safely ship updates. Powered by Argo open source, the Ambassador DCP now integrates into existing GitOps workflows, ensuring auditability and visibility across environments.

- Enhanced Contributor Experience for Emissary-ingress. Contributors to Emissary-ingress, a CNCF Incubation project, now benefit from an overhauled contribution, release, and testing process. With these changes, Emissary-ingress is able to better support the growth in the open source community.
