Ambassador vs Google Cloud Endpoints: What are the differences?

Developers describe Ambassador as "Open source, Kubernetes-native API Gateway for Microservices built on Envoy". Map services to arbitrary URLs in a single, declarative YAML file. Configure routes with CORS support, circuit breakers, timeouts, and more. Replace your Kubernetes ingress controller. Route gRPC, WebSockets, or HTTP. On the other hand, Google Cloud Endpoints is detailed as "Develop, deploy and manage APIs on any Google Cloud backend". An NGINX-based proxy and distributed architecture give unparalleled performance and scalability. Using an Open API Specification or one of our API frameworks, Cloud Endpoints gives you the tools you need for every phase of API development and provides insight with Google Cloud Monitoring, Cloud Trace, Google Cloud Logging and Cloud Trace.

Ambassador and Google Cloud Endpoints belong to "API Tools" category of the tech stack.

Ambassador is an open source tool with 2.03K GitHub stars and 288 GitHub forks. Here's a link to Ambassador's open source repository on GitHub.
