5 min read

What is IBM Streaming Analytics?

IBM Streaming Analytics for IBM Cloud is an advanced analytic platform allowing user-developed applications to quickly ingest, analyze, and correlate information as it arrives from a wide variety of real time-data sources. Analysis of structured and unstructured streaming data like text, video, audio, geospatial, and sensor data helps organizations spot opportunities and risks to make decisions in near real-time.

Feature changes in Washington

Streaming Analytics services and plans are currently available in Dallas, Washington DC, London, and Frankfurt. This change affects only the Washington DC region. All other regions are unaffected by this change.

This notice is to announce the End of Market for all plans for the Washington DC region.

End of Market date: December 12, 2019

As of that date, users will no longer be able to create new instances of Streaming Analytics in the Washington DC region. Existing instances in Washington DC will be unaffected at that time. Users with existing instances can continue to run streaming workloads or they can move them to Streaming Analytics services in other regions.
