BOSTON, Jan. 18, 2023 - Ambassador Labs, the cloud native developer experience leader, today announced a host of new capabilities available in Ambassador Cloud that make it easier for organizations to adopt Kubernetes and support developer productivity in how they code, test, ship and run workflows across these high scale environments. Edge Stack API Gateway, the company’s flagship API gateway, now contains a number of performance updates, beneficial to all users and especially large scale deployments, and also includes active health checking features that give developers more control of the overall resilience and scalability of services. Telepresence is now fully integrated with Ambassador Cloud Service Catalog, delivering real-time visibility into workflow performance and includes a new “team mode” to ease the developer onboarding process across large organizations. “We see organizations struggle to manage their Kubernetes environments, particularly developers who not only have taken on more ownership of the full app dev lifecycle, but also collaborate with dev teams across the business to support fast dev cycles,” said Richard Li, Chief Product Officer and co-founder at Ambassador Labs. “We long ago saw the advantage Kubernetes brings to organizations and importantly, the opportunity it provides developers managing apps across these high-scale environments.
