Pega Platform changes with upgrade impact

Version:

Only available versions of this content are shown in the dropdown

As Pega Infinity software advances, Pega is committed to providing software upgrades with minimal disruption so both you and your customers can continue to access and use Pega applications throughout the entire upgrade 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 upgrades.
  • Changes are backwards compatible for your applications that are based on Pega Infinity.
  • Performance and security enhancements may impose a minimal upgrade impact, since application stability and security are our highest priorities.

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