Availability, resiliency, and backup
Pega Cloud provides services that are available to customers and their end users 24 x 7 x 365. Pega services are delivered so that there is built-in continuity and data replication to meet service level agreements. Deployment is across multiple availability zones within a geographical region to protect against zone faults and localized service disruption.
Pega Cloud Services provides various levels of backup and redundancy for customer data to ensure full recovery of environments in the event of service disruption or failure.
Pega Cloud provides support for application data tier configuration changes not enabled on Pega Platform.
Business Information Exchange (BIX) for Pega Cloud lets you extract Pega Platform application data from your Pega Cloud application to your customer-provided site.
Pega Cloud Operations monitors for infrastructure component issues and failures, system performance degradation, and resource usage issues, and proactively responds to infrastructure alerts to remediate issues. Proactive database monitoring and tuning is also available to support availability and performance. Customers manage application health by using self-service access to Pega Predictive Diagnostic Cloud (PDC), the System Management Application (SMA), and the last 30 days of application logs.
Networking and integration
Your Pega Cloud Services environments are deployed into a dedicated virtual private cloud (VPC) to ensure isolated and secure networking, as well as the ability to implement changes without affecting other customers.
Most applications require access to data and information that are provided by another system, or they need to respond to requests from other systems for data or computations. In Pega Cloud, the approaches, technologies, and facilities that support such information exchange are collectively known as integration. Integration includes services that provide information from your application running in Pega Cloud to your enterprise system requests and connectors that enable your application running Pega Cloud to receive information from your enterprise systems.
Pega Cloud Services provides a secure and robust infrastructure environment for Pega PlatformTM and Strategic Applications that achieves high levels of security and data integrity. Pega Cloud Services provides host-based virus protection, continuous security monitoring, vulnerability and security management of Pega Cloud-delivered environments, customer-specific encryption of data at rest, and sandbox environments that can be hibernated to block threats and conserve energy. Pega Cloud Services' dedicated security team manages compliance, security monitoring, and security event response.
Various access types to the Pega Cloud environment govern the level of access, determining which features are available and which Pega Cloud environment (development or test, pre-production, and production) can be accessed.
