Boston, MA - November 17, 2020 - Ambassador Labs, having established themselves as the favorite Kubernetes-native API gateway, with more than 10,000 organizations using Ambassador to date, is gearing up to accelerate a powerful set of tools that will enable organizations to thrive in the cloud.
“With Ambassador Labs’ approach to cloud architectures, development teams will be better equipped to make shifts to their workflows that support speed and safety,” said Richard Li, co-founder and CEO of Ambassador Labs. “With the acceleration of the availability of these tools, teams will be able to ship changes to production without fear, and once development teams can ship without fear, they’ll be able to truly take advantage of cloud-native platforms.”
K8s Initializer 1.0: Accelerate CNCF technology adoption for Kubernetes developers
Building cloud-native applications requires more than just Kubernetes. The K8s Initializer is a free tool that enables developers to configure a full platform stack on Kubernetes built on Ambassador (ingress), Argo (continuous delivery), OpenTelemetry (tracing), Prometheus (monitoring) and more. The Initializer has been used by thousands of developers to configure Kubernetes already, and has generated over 70 million lines of YAML.
Ambassador Labs is thrilled to announce the 1.0 release of the Initializer which makes building and sharing Kubernetes playgrounds even easier, with additional support for observability and serverless as well as new features that make sharing proof-of-concepts with teammates more accessible.
Edge Stack 1.9: Self-service API Gateway for accelerating development
Edge Stack is the award-winning API Gateway from Ambassador Labs. Used by over 10,000 organizations every day, Ambassador Labs is announcing the release of Edge Stack 1.9. This release includes additional features to empower self-service development teams, including:
- IP allow/deny lists, which enable requests to be accepted or rejected based on the originator’s IP address
- Customizable user-friendly error messages
- An improved Developer Portal that now supports public/private API documentation
Telepresence 2: Powered by Go to accelerate developer productivity
Ambassador Labs is also announcing Telepresence 2.
The Ambassador Labs team is excited to announce an improved version of the CNCF Sandbox tool, Telepresence, coming this year. Telepresence 2 will be rewritten in Go to foster more collaboration and community contributions while also increasing speed and performance. You can sign up to get early access to the release now.
“Tech teams approach cloud-native with varying degrees of readiness for the massive workflow shifts that accompany the tech shifts to a distributed model,” said Richard. “We are committed to making Kubernetes and Ambassador accessible, simple, and effective for as many people as possible,” said Richard, “and we think these latest releases are a strong step forward in that direction.”
