IBM Data Refinery Beta Shutting Down

Share this post:

Dear Data Refinery Users,

Thank you for using IBM Data Refinery beta. We’d like to inform you that we are shutting down the beta version of the service on April 13,  2018. Data Refinery functionality will continue to be provided in the generally available services IBM Data Catalog and IBM Data Science Experience. We encourage all current Data Refinery beta users to provision a plan for either IBM Data Catalog or IBM Data Science Experience and continue benefiting from the functionality of Data Refinery.

Here’s what you need to know:

Beta End of Support: April 13, 2018

Last day beta instances can be provisioned: March 12, 2018

  • Anyone who has an instance of Data Refinery beta and also has any instance of either IBM Data Catalog or IBM Data Science Experience on April 13, will be able to continue using Data Refinery functionality as a tool within those offerings. Their data and jobs within Data Refinery will persist as a part of those offerings and those users will not be disrupted.
  • For a period of 58 days after the End of Marketing date, through April 13, all existing instances will continue to be available on the Services dashboard in the IBM Cloud console. All existing instances will continue to be supported until the end of beta date.
  • Any beta instance still provisioned as of the Beta End of Support Date will not be accessible through the service in IBM Cloud.
  • Please either provision Data Catalog or Data Science Experience or delete your IBM Data Refinery Beta service instance before the Beta End of Support Date.

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

Offering Manager, Watson
