Supports Self Service

The Ambassador Edge Stack enables platform teams to provide edge-as-a-service to application developers, improving agility and velocity.


The Ambassador Edge Stack provides the broad spectrum of functionality necessary to support edge microservices today, reducing edge complexity and overhead.

It All Starts with an Ingress Controller

Routing traffic into your Kubernetes cluster requires modern traffic management. The API Gateway contains a modern Kubernetes ingress controller that supports a broad range of protocols including gRPC and gRPC-Web, supports TLS termination, and provides traffic management controls for resource availability.

See all Ingress Controller Features:

* Kubernetes Integration

* Protocol Support

* Cross-Origin Resource Sharing


* Automatic HTTPS

Edge Policy Management - Key to Developer Self Service

The API Gateway empowers developers and devops teams with self-service functionality for managing changes to routing. This includes a declarative policy engine, CRD configurations, and an optional UI. In addition to managing the changes, Edge Stack contains observability and distributed tracing integrations.

See all Edge Management Features:

* Declarative Policy Engine

* Edge Policy Console

* Observability Integrations

* Distributed Tracing Integrations

Simplified Traffic Management to Ensure High Availability

Microservices may crash, but your application shouldn’t. The API Gateway includes support for automatic retries, timeouts, circuit breakers, and rate limiting to maximize application availability. In addition to keeping your application available, the API Gateway supports progressive releases with fine-grained traffic management controls.

See all Traffic Management Features:

* Load Balancing

* Circuit Breaking

* Progressive Delivery

Security and Authentication

The Ambassador Edge Stack makes securing microservices easy with a comprehensive set of security functionality, including automatic TLS, authentication, rate limiting, WAF integration, and fine-grained access control.

See all Security and Authentication Features:

* Authentication

* Rate Limiting

* Custom Request Filters

* WAF Integration

* External Filters

Integrates with Service Mesh

Ambassador natively supports service meshes for service discovery, end-to-end TLS, and observability. Datawire has customers with production integrations on all the most popular meshes. In addition to service mesh support, the API Gateway also supports multi-cluster Kubernetes when used with LinkerD.

Delivery Acceleration

Accelerated Workflows

The Edge Stack reduces friction in developer workflows and improves developer experiences.

Rich Ecosystem

The Ambassador Edge Stack is part of a larger ecosystem of tools for delivery accelerations, including Telepresence and Jenkins X.

Accelerate the Inner Dev Loop

Service Preview allows developers to test changes locally as if they are in the shared dev cluster without affecting the work of their peers and without lengthening the inner dev loop with container deployments.

Streamline CI/CD

The MicroCD Pipeline feature enables developers to stand up version 0 of their services. Once you confirm the infrastructure and start making improvements, you can switch to using a CI/CD solution like Jenkins X or continue using the MicroCD Pipeline for smaller, low-risk services.
