Retirement of Blockchain High Security Business Beta plan

Share this post:

We’d like to inform you that the Blockchain High Security Business Beta plan became Generally Available on October 20, 2016. As a result, we are retiring the Blockchain High Security Business Beta plan on November 1, 2016.

What you need to know

  • End of Beta Marketing: As of November 1, 2016, you will no longer be able to provision new Blockchain High Security Business Beta plan instances. However, existing instances will continue to be supported.
  • End of Beta Support: For a period of 45 days starting November 1, 2016 , through December 15, 2016 , all existing instances will continue to be available to users through their Bluemix dashboard, and will continue to be supported by Blockchain.

Any instance still provisioned as of the End of Beta Support Date will be deleted.
Users are therefore asked to unprovision their Blockchain High Security Business Beta plan instance(s) prior to the End of Beta Support Date.

We are not currently making the High Security Business Beta plan available for self-service use. In order to gain access, please contact us and have a free discussion with our Blockchain Garage team. You can do this directly within the Blockchain service page in the Bluemix catalog:

Just select the HSBN plan and click on the “Request” button to fill in your contact information. As always, we’re here to help! Please reach out to us in the support forums, or @IBMBluemixSupport on Twitter.
