Taking action to secure our IBM Cloud Container Service against recent Spectre and Meltdown security vulnerabilities
We’re taking action to secure our IBM Cloud Container Service against the recent Spectre and Meltdown security vulnerabilities. We’ve been working closely with our vendors and IBM Cloud Infrastructure teams concerning the security vulnerability announced on January 3, 2018. This vulnerability has the potential to allow those with malicious intent to gather sensitive data from computing devices. Intel believes these exploits do not have the potential to corrupt, modify, or delete data.
We are retiring the Dreamface service on IBM Cloud.
IBM Cloud Experimental Plan and IBM Marketplace Free Plan users have until Feb 1, 2018 to switch to the new service on IBM Cloud. Paid users have until June 29, 2018.
We hope you have been having a great experience discovering, cataloguing and governing data with IBM Data Catalog as part of IBM Watson Data Platform. We’d like to inform you that the Data Catalog service is now generally available (GA), and all Beta plan instances will be retired on January 31, 2018.
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.
Due to feedback of the market we’d like to inform you about the deprecation of the IoT for Insurance service. However, IoT for Insurance is not going away -- but rather as of July 31, 2017 IBM IoT for Insurance became a SaaS offering. To utilize IBM IoT for Insurance please utilize the SaaS offering available on the IBM Marketplace at https://www.ibm.com/us-en/marketplace/ibm-iot-for-insurance .
We are retiring the IQP IoT Code-Free App Development service on Bluemix.
