Limit upgrade downtime with data schema upgrade improvements (8.5)

Suggest edit Updated on May 3, 2021

Experience minimal downtime during upgrades to Pega Platform™ 8.5 because of several data scheme upgrade improvements that increase the speed of the data schema upgrade.

The optimized use of the data schema ensures that applying new database indexes to tables takes significantly less time. Additionally, the schema synchronization process during the upgrade no longer scans the entire rule inventory to delete rules, resulting in a faster synchronization.

Pega Cloud® Services clients can experience faster, seamless upgrades to Pega Platform and client applications, because the data upgrade step now ignores the Pega rules that were already imported during the rules schema upgrade step.

With these service improvements, Pega Cloud Services clients in particular can upgrade their environments within their scheduled maintenance windows.
