Migrate Analytics for Apache Spark Notebooks to the IBM Data Science Experience

Share this post:

Hello IBM Analytics for Apache Spark Users,

We will be discontinuing support for the Jupyter notebooks on Bluemix as of April 6, 2017. As an IBM Analytics for Apache Spark user, we’d like you to leverage the latest Jupyter Notebooks on the Data Science Experience by migrating your notebooks (Spark 1.4.1 and later versions). Please note this service update affects the US South, Sydney and United Kingdom Regions.

The IBM Data Science Experience brings together Jupyter Notebooks, RStudio and machine learning tools in a collaborative workspace designed for data professionals.  We believe this change will make working with your data easier and more powerful than ever.

As always, we want to provide you the best Data Science environment for your Spark workloads. Please reach out to us at if you have any questions or comments. Your input is greatly appreciated!

Spark Service Team
