Ambassador Edge Stack Wins 2020 People's Choice Stevie® Award for Favorite New API Management Solution

July 21, 2020 | 5 min read

Boston, MA – July 20, 2020 – Datawire, the company behind the fastest growing Kubernetes API gateway, Ambassador, today announced it has been named a winner of a People’s Choice Stevie® Award for Favorite API Management Solution.  Winners of the crystal People’s Choice Stevie Awards, as well as all other winners in the 18th Annual American Business Awards, will be celebrated during a virtual awards ceremony on August 5.

The American Business Awards are the nation’s premier business awards program. All organizations operating in the U.S.A. are eligible to submit nominations – public and private, for-profit and non-profit, large and small.

The People’s Choice Stevie Awards for Favorite New Products are a feature of The American Business Awards in which the general public can vote for their favorite new products and services of the year.  More than 87,000 votes were cast in 52 people’s choice categories this year.  All new products and services honored in the ABAs’ new product categories were included in people’s choice voting.

With Ambassador, developers own services, not just the code behind the services. Developers can safely write, deploy, release, and run code, enabling them to rapidly change services and observe the impact of those changes. This process creates an accelerating loop of experimentation and improvement.

Built for Kubernetes managed environments, the Ambassador Edge Stack, goes beyond traditional API Gateways and Ingress Controllers with the advanced edge features needed to support developer self-service. Built on the industry-leading Envoy Proxy, the Ambassador Edge Stack is available in both open-source and commercial editions. Ambassador Edge Stack is the most popular Kubernetes-native API Gateway.

In May 2020, the Ambassador Edge Stack won a Silver Stevie Award for Best API Management Solution in the 2020 American Business Awards®.

“Being recognized with a People’s Choice Stevie Award is a true testament to the value Ambassador Edge Stack provides in helping organizations manage the microservices development cycle,” Richard Li, CEO of Datawire, Inc. “We have a vibrant, growing community and their voices were heard. We are committed to continually driving innovation to ensure the Ambassador Edge Stack delivers the most value for improving the developer experience. Congratulations to this year’s winners!”
