HiSo new NPS is container inside CP4D (CloudPak for Data) which when I look on release notes in on: 3.11
When I check Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform Life Cycle PolicyRed Hat OpenShift Container Platform Life Cycle Policy (non-current versions) - Red Hat Customer Portal
It seems that RedHat (an IBM company) seems to provide Full Support only by end of June 2021. I understand taht this comes as an appliance and support is going to be same as for Netezza (the whole). But seems like on day 1 we are going into legacy / abandonned technology.What is the upgrade plan for CP4D to something more modern (for example OCP 4.6)?
Hello Adam,Our current OCP 3.11 is the latest 3.x version and is fully supported by redhat until Jun 2022
v3.X End of Maintenance Schedule
Still not answered question: why there is no OCP 4.X?
1,5 year (Jun 2022) is not the time you are buying large enterprise data warehouse. And this date is time for extended support. Full support (so more focus on support side) is by June 2019.
I would not complain if OCP 4.X would not exist yet – but it is: for last half year is officially GA.
Again – it seems we are on day 1 getting on tech which is obsolete .
When CP4D will be upgraded to newer version? Where we can find IBM's official commitment for that?
So to clarify: IBM is working on upgrade of existing CP4D/NPS appliances which are having OCP 3.11 to upgrade to OCP4.X – without a need to replace hardware, data migrations, system reinit etc. We just treat it as software patch I hope/NPS upgrade? If that is the case then I'm relieved.
