Ambassador Labs Updates Developer Control Plane
August 23, 2021

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

The newest release of Ambassador DCP includes core features and functionality to streamline the app development lifecycle process for teams across large organizations while supporting existing technologies and role responsibilities. As the GitOps workflow continues to be transformative to accelerating velocity, Ambassador DCP augments existing workflows with the new capabilities to cost-effectively context switch between coding, shipping, and running workstreams. Teams can also take advantage of enhanced automation to gain a unified view for easy management of all services across the development environment.

“Delivering cloud-native apps has a level of complexity when it comes to building, shipping and running distributed systems, igniting a learning curve for developers that also affects the traditional roles of teams - ultimately causing disruption to development workflows,” said Richard LI, CEO at Ambassador Labs. “We are steadfast in our commitment to adding new capabilities quickly to the Ambassador Developer Control Plane to address these complexities, support the technologies and processes already in place across the organization, and foster better collaboration for fast dev delivery. The new capabilities available reinforce our commitment to helping teams to easily view, see changes, and manage the different components of the cloud development loop for fast app delivery.”

With increased adoption of Kubernetes across the enterprise, so too comes the complexity of managing the speed and volume of workflows. As developer responsibility goes beyond coding and now includes shipping and running the code, the need for better cross-team collaboration and a centralized platform to not only manage the technology layers but also gain real-time access into all stages of the cloud-native development life cycle becomes imperative.

Built on major CNCF open-source projects, the newest release of Ambassador DCP continues to augment existing workflows and give distributed teams the ability to have accurate situational awareness into all phases of the dev lifecycle.

New features available in Ambassador DCP v1.5 include:

- Code and share API documentation via the Developer Portal. API documentation is now included in the core Service Details page, allowing developer teams to get a unified, real-time view of their services across environments, whether on prem or in the cloud, with new Telepresence support for Windows. Teams can also view the API documentation of the deployed service alongside the runtime information for a service.

- Run Automated configuration Analysis. The DCP now automatically analyzes configuration changes to Emissary-ingress, posting the results of this analysis as a comment in your GitHub repository. This empowers developers to see the context and impact of those changes before they are released to production - improving situational awareness.

In addition to new capabilities available within Ambassador DCP, the company also unveiled its Ambassador Community Advocates. With 15 members in the inaugural class, these cloud native experts are available to share expert knowledge, contribute to Ambassador open source projects, and help individuals at any stage of their cloud native development journey.
