IBM extended the end-of-service date of IBM WebSphere Application Server V6.1 (WAS V6.1) from September 30, 2012 to September 30, 2013. Please see the announcement here.
We strongly encourage customers to migrate to more currently supported versions of WAS and this change to the end-of-service date provides more time to better plan a successful migration. Moving to current versions of WAS provides a much broader set of functions (for both developers and operations) and improves performance and total cost of ownership. For the latest information on special version-to-version migration incentives and assistance, refer to the Knowledge Collection.
It is there you will find information about:
A no-charge waiver that expands WAS license entitlements for WAS V6.1 migrations
Migration Assessment offers from IBM Software Services for WebSphere (ISSW)
Best practices for migration from WAS V6.1
and much more
If you have already purchased (or are contracted for) WAS Service Extensions, IBM will be contacting you to discuss appropriate next steps relative to those agreements.
For reference purposes, here are the original end-of-service announcements for WAS V6.1.
For any other questions, please contact your IBM representative.
