Currently, we use Ambassador as a secondary ingress controller. It addresses our needs by facilitating adding dynamic routes for our incredible number of endpoints. That way it makes it very easy to get multiple parallel microservices we need to be deployed to support our testing and quality assurance needs.
  • Simple syntax
  • Easy to understand
  • Easy to install
  • Documentation is not updated
  • Implementing external authentication doesn't always work as described in the documentation
  • The Administration console is limited
Ambassador is really well suited for scenarios were you need to give power and freedom to your developers so they can take advantage of the self-service approach. One of the few scenarios I can not recommend using Ambassador is in the case you are planning to not using Kubernetes as it is a solution designed to work specifically on that platform.
  • Reduced downtime by redirecting traffic between DC.
  • Reduced engineering time, don't have to dedicate 1 person to manage it.
  • Increased training costs in the short term.
They both offer about the same in terms of end goal and purpose of use and scenarios. However, Ambassador does way better in terms of simplifying the syntax and makes offer a little bit more of control by adding the concepts of hosts, mappings while staying away from a hard to read single file configuration.

Overall the support has been great and quick to answer the requests I've submitted in the past. I was originally using the community/open source version and I can't say it was the best experience I had, it wasn't terrible but it wasn't great. I believe the biggest issue was that they refer to the documentation a lot but the documentation isn't updated regularly so I feel it's lagging behind the most recent versions.
It's great! it's amazingly simple to use and the best part is the self-service approach. I also like how easy it is to add a new route to a endpoint with the mappings definition.
