Effective July 7, 2016, we will be retiring the WebSphere Application Server (WAS) v9 Traditional Beta, as WAS version 9.0 became generally available on June 24, 2016. Please see this announcement to learn more about the WAS v9.0 release.
All WAS v9 Traditional Beta leases have been set to expire on July 7, 2016 and will be removed from Bluemix after their expiration. Here’s what you need to know:
- Download the files and data you want to keep from your free WAS v9 Traditional Beta plan on or before July 7, 2016. Then you can get started with one of the other WebSphere Application Server plans.
- If you need more time switching to another WAS plan, starting June 30, 2016 you can go to your Bluemix WAS v9 Beta dashboard and select “RENEW” to extend the Beta plan for 30 days.
- Please note that all remaining WAS v9 Traditional Beta plan leases will expire and be removed from Bluemix on August 7, 2016.
If you would like to provide feedback about your experience using the Beta plan or have any questions, we are here to help! Reach out to us in our support forums to get the answers you need.
