What are AWS legacy workspaces, and what are they being replaced with?

AWS Legacy workspaces were released in May of 2015. They predate the next generation Databricks platform, the E2 version, which was released in September 2020.

Why are AWS legacy workspaces being deprecated?

The E2 platform, which continues to be enhanced, provides a richer set of features such as Unity Catalog, Delta Live Tables, Databricks SQL, the unified account console for multi-workspace support, and more. E2 also has scalability and security enhancements for regulated industries that will benefit customers in other segments as well.

How can you update a legacy AWS workspace to E2?

Migrate your legacy workspaces to E2 by December 31, 2023. The sooner you migrate, the sooner you can benefit from the latest features and better experience provided by E2.

The workspace migration guide will help you:

  • Check whether your workspace is a legacy workspace.

  • Migrate your legacy workspace to an E2 workspace.
