Pega Platform changes with update impact

Suggest edit
Updated on April 12, 2022

As Pega Infinity software advances, Pega is committed to providing software updates with minimal disruption so both you and your customers can continue to access and use Pega applications throughout the entire update process.

To achieve this goal, the development process follows a near zero-downtime standard that attempts to ensure that the latest Pega software features and enhancements impact your applications as little as possible from release to release. The near zero-downtime standard sets the following goals:

  • Changes allow your applications to run during updates.
  • Changes are backwards compatible for your applications that are based on Pega Infinity.
  • Performance and security enhancements may impose a minimal update impact, since application stability and security are our highest priorities.

For updates from Pega Infinity release 8.4.2 and later to release 8.5.1 and later, Pega supports near-zero downtime updates on Pega Cloud services and on-premises environments (for Apache Tomcat and PostgreSQL). For details about the process and standards for Pega software updates, see:
