Data management services
Pega Cloud® Services offers a robust set of options to provide self-service for your data management requirements1.
Pega Cloud Services database management capabilities offer you the ability to interact with your internal Pega Platform database directly, store data within a secure cloud repository, restore data and attachments as needed, create external database instances for a variety of industry-standard database types, and extract data for use in other systems.
Pega Cloud Services provides the following database management options:
- Use Query Runner, Query Inspector, and Schema Tools to administer your database on Pega Cloud. For more information, see Managing your Pega Platform database in Pega Cloud.
- Rely on a 30-day database backup and restore for all Pega Cloud environments and file attachments. For more information, see Database backup and restore.
- Utilize Pega Cloud Services File Storage for a repository to place all your Pega Cloud environment application files. For more information, see Pega Cloud Services File Storage.

1As a customer, you are responsible for ensuring that production data is present only within production environments and that all data within lower environments is sample data that does not contain protected health information (PHI), personally identifiable information (PII), and other confidential, classified, private, or sensitive information, because such data is unsuitable for use in non-production environments. Pegasystems is not responsible for classifying or confirming whether production data contains sensitive information and whether that data exists within any cloud environment.
