IBM Cloud Databases for PostgreSQL 10: End-of-Life in November 2022

less than a min read

On November 3, 2022, all IBM Cloud Databases for PostgreSQL instances on version 10 that are still active will be disabled.

Users are expected to either be on PostgreSQL version 11 or get the latest preferred version of IBM Cloud Databases for PostgreSQL with all the great features added to the versions 12, 13 and 14.

To upgrade to the latest PostgreSQL version, customers do not have to upgrade their database through the major proceeding versions. For example, customers can upgrade their PostgreSQL 10 database straight to PostgreSQL 12.

Upgrade your database 

Customers can upgrade their database via Read Replicas for a low-downtime upgrade solution or choose to use backup/restore.

We recommend customers use the Read Replica method for lower impact and its ability to allow you to dry-run the upgrade.
