What’s new

Find out what is new in IBM Event Streams version 10.3.0.

Reduced footprint of lightweight sample

The lightweight without security sample does not request the following IBM Cloud Pak foundational services by default:

  • IAM
  • Monitoring Exporters
  • Monitoring Grafana
  • Monitoring Prometheus Ext

This reduces the minimum resources required for foundational services.

Support for Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform 4.6.8 and later

Event Streams version 10.3.0 introduces support for Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform version 4.6.8 and later.

Deprecation of Event Streams

The Event Streams component in IBM Cloud Pak for Integration 2021.1.1 and later has been deprecated. Event Streams will continue to be supported but will no longer be enhanced (see announcement). For self-managed software solutions that require Apache Kafka, IBM recommends the Confluent Platform available as an add-on for Cloud Pak for Integration.

This deprecation does not apply to the managed service of IBM Event Streams on IBM Cloud.
