Project fnx

Evolving for the future.

Project fnx (pronounced fee-nix) is the internal code name for an ongoing evolution of the underlying architecture of Pega Infinity™. Pega is evolving the runtime environment to allow for increased service isolation, improved support of cloud-native technologies such as Kubernetes and Docker, and use of leading-edge technologies for caching, search, and data storage. Project fnx is accelerating development in this area to ensure Pega Infinity™ is always a technically sustainable choice, carrying forward our clients’ intellectual property and investments in the Pega ecosystem.

Frequently Asked Questions

How is this related to Pega Infinity™?
Project fnx continues the innovation delivered with Pega Infinity™. It is a focused effort to accelerate architectural evolution with a goal to provide the best framework to embrace leading cloud native technologies now and in the future. We expect guardrail-compliant Pega Infinity™ applications to move forward seamlessly to take advantage of these architectural enhancements.

Is this included in my cloud subscription or maintenance contract?
Yes, the planned enhancements in Project fnx will be included with your cloud subscriptions and current maintenance contract.

Should I delay my upgrade?
No! There are already new features that have been released as part of this project, like the Digital Experience API (DX API). We will be continuously delivering enhancements throughout the next set of releases. Additionally, a key part of this project is to simplify upgrades. To take advantage of the new runtime architecture you will need to be running the latest version of Pega InfinityTM (currently 8.3), so upgrading is an essential pre-requisite to positioning yourself to leverage the enhancements from Project fnx.

Does this mean that Pega just added Kubernetes support?
We have and continue to support Docker, Kubernetes, and many other cloud native technologies. This project delivers tighter integration to expand more deeply into cloud technologies for improved performance, innovation, scalability, and faster time to market, while simplifying upgrades and updates.

When will this be available?
Keep in mind, this isn’t a new product, however, many enhancements from this initiative are already available. The impact of Project fnx will be felt across our coming releases.

Is this for Pega Cloud or Client Cloud?
We are working to ensure that our architectural enhancements support our Cloud Choice promise, so that clients running on either Pega Cloud or a self-managed client cloud can take advantage of these enhancements.

Is Pega becoming microservices-based?
We already allow Pega to deploy in small containers, expose discrete services as API’s, and isolate functions to specific runtimes, etc. This initiative will further allow for service isolation and other architectural and operational best-practices that are part of modern software architectures.
