Upgrading Cloud Pak for Data System
This section describes how to upgrade Cloud Pak for Data System.
- Due to the discontinuance of full support for Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform 3.11 on June 30, 2022, it is removed from the system. Version 22.214.171.124 disables all software components related to Cloud Pak for Data. This includes Red Hat OpenShift, Portworx, and the Cloud Pak for Data application itself together with its add-ons (excluding Netezza Performance Server).
- Netezza Performance Server and Cloud Pak for Data System releases are independent of each other. The Netezza Performance Server release that is mentioned in the table is the latest release that was available at the time, but it does not mean only this release is supported. It is always recommended to have the latest Netezza Performance Server/Cloud Pak for Data System version.
