Deploying Pega Platform

Suggest edit Updated on April 5, 2022

Pega provides three different deployment options to best fit your infrastructure needs. Options include a fully-managed deployment with Pega Cloud Services, a client-managed Cloud solution, or an on-premises deployment.

  • Pega Cloud Services – Pega manages your cloud service, which is optimized for running Pega applications in a cloud environment. A Pega Cloud Services subscription is the fastest time to value. For more information about Pega Cloud Services, see Pega Cloud.
  • Client-managed cloud solution – Pega clients are responsible for the orchestration, automation, and operation of their cloud environments on any of the validated infrastructure providers. Pega clients (or partners) manage performance, monitoring, scaling, security, and maintenance such as applying Pega software upgrades and patches. For information about deploying Pega Platform on your personal cloud, see Cloud Choice.
  • On premises deployment – Pega clients are responsible for the orchestration, automation, and operation of their own database and application server on any of the validated infrastructure providers. Pega clients (or partners) manage performance, monitoring, scaling, security, and maintenance such as applying Pega software upgrades and patches to their in-house environment. For information about deploying Pega Platform on premise, see the installation and upgrade guides for your release.
Regardless of your infrastructure decision, Pega supports most popular application servers and database platforms. For a comprehensive list of supported platforms, see the Platform Support Guide.
  • Understanding high availability deployments

    Highly available systems are accessible with minimal or no downtime, despite hardware failure, process crashes due to insufficient resources, memory leaks, maintenance, application upgrade activities, or natural disasters. Pega Platform provides tools to meet high level production service level agreements for mission critical applications with high availability features.

  • Updating Pega Platform

    Keep Pega Platform up-to-date, both for Pega Cloud Services and on-premises environments.
