    Team,
    How can I determine which software release to use when planning to upgrade my ICOS environment?
    For the Spectrum Virtualize Family I always have a look at the Products Upgrade Planning

    Thanks!

    Hi there,

    I generally use the IBM Docs website to have a look at the What's new section in each code release and decide if its critical to my clients.

    for ICOS System the current code version is: 3.15.7  this introduces better support for object versioning in line with the S3 API ... I would be looking at migrating to this version.

    The answer from @ANDREW BEATTIE ​ is good, as it's the latest GA release. The IBM Cloud Object Storage Product Support team currently recommends 3.15.7.60

    Keep in mind that ICOS supports "N up to N+2 upgrade" where N = the 2nd digit in the ClevOS releases.  Besides the latest GA release, it's also recommended to check with ICOS Product Support team for the recommended ClevOS version from each release line.
