After October 25, 2024, all IBM Cloud Databases for Redis instances on version 6.0 that are still active will be upgraded in-place to Redis version 6.2.

This will be done according to our Database Versioning Policy.

Next steps

Users are expected to upgrade their IBM Cloud Database for Redis instance to version 6.2 using the backup and restore process before the EOL date of version 6. 

We strongly recommend that you do not wait for the in-place upgrade due to the following reasons:

  • We provide no SLAs for this type of forced migration.
  • Customers may experience some data loss. Applications may experience downtime.
  • Applications might stop working if they are incompatible with the new version.
  • There is no control over when this upgrade will happen to the deployment.
  • There is no rollback process for this forced upgrade.
