- Improved situational awareness with Ambassador Edge Stack. Any developer can preview routing configuration changes made to clusters and see the context and impact of those changes before they go live with Automated configuration analysis integration with GitHub.
- Easier configuration and debugging with Telepresence. Teams can troubleshoot configuration and operational issues with built-in support for OpenTelemetry and Prometheus endpoints.
- Easier sharing of debug configuration with Telepresence. Any operator or developer can now bundle their Telepresence debugging commands into a “recorded intercept” that is easily shared with their team. With a single click in Ambassador Cloud, multiple Telepresence debug settings, flags, and configurations can be reused by any developer on the team.
