Share this post:

IBM Cloudant is removing the Warehousing feature, which allows Cloudant data to be analyzed in Db2 Warehouse for Cloud. This will happen in stages, as follows:

January, 16th 2018: Users not using the Warehouse functionality cannot start using it.
March, 31st 2018: New Warehouse jobs cannot be created by clients who were using the Warehouse capability before the 16th of January.
May, 5th 2018: Existing Warehouse jobs will be stopped. Final status can be viewed on the dashboard still.
May, 31st 2018: User interface to Warehouse feature removed. Status of Warehouse jobs becomes unavailable.

Data that has been transferred to Db2 Warehouse on Cloud by April, 30th 2018 will remain in Db2 Warehouse on Cloud and Cloudant data will also be unaffected.
