Configuring the Decision Data Store service

Suggest edit Updated on April 5, 2022

This content applies only to On-premises and Client-managed cloud environments

Store decision management data in a backing database, such as Cassandra, and manage the cluster by configuring the Decision Data Store (DDS) service. Examples of decision management data include customer data, decision results, and input data for adaptive and predictive models.

In on-premises and client-managed cloud environments, you have the following deployment options for Cassandra:

External
In this model, you need to install and operate your own Cassandra cluster, and connect it to Pega Platform. This option is recommended as it ensures future compatibility. For more information, see Connecting to an external Cassandra database through the Decision Data Store service.
Managed (embedded, internal)

In this model, the nodes that are designated to hosting the Decision Data Store have their Cassandra Java virtual machine (JVM) started and stopped for them, by the JVM that is hosting the Pega Platform instance. This type of configuration is deprecated starting in Pega Platform version 8.6 and therefore does not ensure future compatibility. It is not recommended for new deployments. For more information, see:

In Pega Cloud environments, the Cassandra database is preconfigured. No action is required.
