  • Description
    We are removing the Warehousing feature from IBM Cloudant, which allows Cloudant data to be analyzed in Db2 Warehouse for Cloud. This change will happen in stages, as follows:
    • January 16, 2018: If you are not using the Warehouse functionality already, you cannot start using it.
    • March 31, 2018: New Warehouse jobs cannot be created by clients who were using the Warehouse capability before January 16, 2018.
    • May 5, 2018: Existing Warehouse jobs will be stopped. You will still be able to view the final status on the dashboard.
    • May 31, 2018: The user interface for the Warehouse feature will be removed. The status of Warehouse jobs will be unavailable.
    Data that has been transferred to Db2 Warehouse on Cloud by April 30, 2018 will remain in Db2 Warehouse on Cloud and Cloudant data will also be unaffected.

    Alternatives to the Warehouse feature
    IBM Cloud has several alternatives to the Warehouse feature. We have documented alternative approaches using Spark SQL, which you can read in the Alternatives to the Db2 Warehouse on Cloud feature section of the documentation.

    Having to remove features is a difficult decision and we fully understand the inconvenience this will cause. We hope our advanced warning helps you to rework your applications with sufficient time.
