Storage Change for Shearwater Cloud Beta
In order to support Predator dives as well as support importing dives from Shearwater Desktop Beta, we needed to alter how dives are stored in the cloud. We are calling the previous solution the Legacy Cloud, and the new solution Upgraded Cloud. In order to minimize impact on customers who are using Shearwater Cloud Beta, we have broken down this migration into several steps.
Step 1) Side-by side support of Legacy Cloud and Upgraded Cloud
- This means that Shearwater Cloud Desktop Beta and Shearwater Cloud Mobile will first sync with Legacy Cloud and then Upgraded Cloud.
- Dives that are in Legacy Cloud will automatically be migrated to Upgraded Cloud
- No new information will be added to Legacy Cloud. All edited information and new dives will be stored in Upgraded Cloud
Step 2) Dropping support of Legacy Cloud in upcoming releases
- New Apps will only access Upgraded Cloud
- Versions of the app that work with side-by-side support will still work and continue to migrate dives added to them.
Step 3) Sunsetting Legacy Cloud (time to be announced)
- Old versions of the app must be updated to continue to be able to sync.
All current versions of Shearwater Cloud Mobile Beta use side-by-side support of both Legacy Cloud and Upgraded Cloud. Shearwater Cloud Desktop has always supported side-by-side support. Shearwater Cloud Mobile Beta 2.0.0 will be the first version of Shearwater Cloud to drop support for Legacy Cloud.
How Does this Affect Me?
First of all, it is very important to keep your apps up to date and to synchronize with the cloud regularly. As long as you have recent versions of Shearwater Mobile Beta, and you sync your dives to Shearwater Cloud Beta, your dives will already be migrated. There’s nothing special that you need to do!
If you use Shearwater Cloud Desktop Beta, you also don’t need to do anything special to upgrade, just keep Shearwater Cloud Desktop Beta up to date.
If you have a very old version of Shearwater Cloud Mobile Beta (1.0.1 or earlier), you need to make sure that you sync before updating to the latest version of Shearwater Mobile Beta. This will ensure that your dives can be imported by the new version.
Before we sunset Legacy Cloud, we will run migration scripts to ensure that everyone’s dives have been migrated over to the new system.
I use the mobile app, but I don’t use the Cloud functionality. Does this affect me?
No, if you do not use the Cloud functionality, you are not affected.
