Final Reminder: Deprecation of Single Containers and Container Groups

Share this post:

The complete deprecation and deletion of all running instances from the old container service in IBM Cloud will take place December 5, 2017.  The deprecation of the old architecture was announced in July.  The new version of the container service went live in May and has seen tremendous growth and capabilities.

As a reminder, the end of support is December 5, 2017.  If you do not migrate your workloads, those running instances will be lost.

On December 5, 2017, we will begin deleting your existing single containers and container groups from the IBM Cloud public offering.  At that point the billing will stop.  If you do no longer require the volumes created as part of the old container service, you must delete those manually.
