Ambassador Labs Releases World's First Managed Developer Control Plane To Transform The Kubernetes Developer Experience
BOSTON, June 23, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Ambassador Labs, the cloud native developer experience leader, today announced the Ambassador Developer Control Plane 1.0 (DCP), the company’s new managed developer control plane solution that lets developers code, ship, and run apps using Kubernetes faster and easier than ever before. Ambassador DCP provides a new managed cloud UI and integrated toolchains built entirely on top of Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) open source projects. With Ambassador DCP, developers and platform teams can intuitively view and manage their organization’s apps and services across development, deployment, and production environments - without the burden of stitching together Kubernetes tools or compromising productivity. Ambassador Labs also unveiled two new developer programs designed specifically to elevate hands-on learning with Kubernetes (Summer of Kubernetes) and recognize top community contributors worldwide (Ambassador Community Advocate program).
“Kubernetes has become an industry-standard and organizations are now faced with a dizzying ecosystem of cloud native open source tools. To deal with increasingly complex tool sprawl, companies have resorted to gluing together various homegrown systems to improve the Kubernetes developer experience,” said Richard Li, CEO & Founder, Ambassador Labs. “A modern developer control plane is necessary to accelerate Kubernetes adoption with less complexity and our mission is to put one in the hands of every developer and at the heart of every organization.”
Introducing Ambassador Developer Control Plane 1.0
The role of developers building applications on Kubernetes has expanded well beyond writing code and now includes shipping and running the code. This expanded responsibility has been accompanied by massive open source tool sprawl, further reducing organizational agility and developer productivity. Developers and companies need a developer control plane to manage and visualize all the tools in their modern app development workflows. Ambassador Labs now delivers a turnkey Developer Control Plane built on major CNCF open-source projects. It includes:
"Emissary-ingress has been a vital part of our Kubernetes adoption efforts, providing us with an open source platform for our microservices transition as we grow beyond the 150,000 businesses using our platform,” said Phil Peble, Senior Software Engineer at ActiveCampaign. “The community leadership and valuable support from the Ambassador Labs team gives us great confidence in our commitment to the project."

The Ambassador Labs community currently benefits from a variety of technical content, open source tools, events, discussion forums, support channels, and more.
