MQ Light Retirement Reminder

Share this post:

We announced on August 9, 2016, that we would be retiring the MQ Light service and we’d like to remind you that MQ Light will cease on August 9, 2017.

Here’s what you need to know:

  • End of Support date Aug 9, 2017
  • Any instance still provisioned as of the End of Support date will be deleted.
  • Users are urgently encouraged to unprovision their MQ Light service instance(s) and back up any data prior to Aug 9, 2017.

The MQ Light Service has been replaced with Message Hub on Bluemix.  We encourage users to migrate to Message Hub on Bluemix, which includes the MQ Light API, and Kafka APIs. Message Hub is designed to be a natural progression from the MQ Light service. By moving to Message Hub, users will benefit from lower costs and tighter integration with other Bluemix services, including analytics engines and on premises IBM MQ.

You can learn more about Message Hub from the from the Message Hub documentation.

As always, we’re here to help! Please reach out to us in the support forums, or on Twitter.
