We are excited to announce a new deployment architecture for IBM Containers running on Bluemix. This new architecture will dramatically improve stability and reliability of the public cloud offering. New users and new spaces for existing users are automatically running in this environment beginning April 11, 2016. We will migrate existing Bluemix spaces on May 9, 2016. You have two options for this migration.
Today, we are announcing that the Object Storage Beta service plan is being withdrawn from the Bluemix catalog. We would like to share with you more details about this announcement and the actions that you can take as a result.
We’d like to remind you that the older free DataWorks Service and the DataWorks free Starter beta plan will be discontinued on March 8, 2016.
Today we are officially announcing first generation services as discontinued in favor of the new services. The first generation services, as well as the Mobile Cloud Boilerplate, will be removed from Bluemix Catalog in the upcoming weeks. Your existing instances of these services will continue to be fully operational, even after the services are removed from the catalog, for the next 12 months.
