Still running on IBM i V5R4 or V6R1?


·   IBM i OS V6R1 will be withdrawn from marketing on December 14, 2014!
It will be withdrawn from support on September 30, 2015!

If you are still running on IBM iOS Version 6, you need to strongly consider upgrading to Version7!

has announced that IBM i OS V6R1 will be withdrawn from marketing on December 14, 2014 and withdrawn from service on September 30, 2015.  This means that if you are not already at V7 you should consider upgrading to V7R1 or V7R2 as soon as possible.

Service Extension will most likely be available for V6R1, but this will be an additional cost above Software Maintenance as Software Maintenance is a requirement for service Extension.

Extended support for V5R4 is ending!

·   Support for V5R4 ended on September 30, 2013.
·   Service Extension for V5R4 ends September 30, 2016.
