IBM Analytics Engine v1.2 will be available May 15, 2019

We are excited to inform you about the new version of IBM Analytics Engine v1.2 that will be available starting May 15, 2019. Along with this release, Analytics Engine v1.0 will be sunset.

IBM Analytics Engine, built on separate integration points and compute and storage architecture, incorporates Hortonworks Data Platform and Apache Spark. Analytics Engine v1.2 is built on Hortonworks Data Platform v3.1 (HDP). With this new version, almost all the components of HDP have been upgraded. For detailed list of software components, please refer to Analytics Engine Cloud Docs

The new version will be delivered in the following three packages

  • AE 1.2 Hadoop

  • AE 1.2 Spark

  • AE 1.2 Hive LLAP

AE 1.0 packages will be sunset on May 15, 2019. To start using the new version of the service, you can simply delete your AE 1.0 cluster and provision a new cluster with AE1.1 or AE1.2 packages.

Here’s what you need to know

Service changes announce date: April 30, 2019
