Pegasystems adds Kubernetes support to Cloud Choice Guarantee offering

Pegasystems has expanded its Cloud Choice Guarantee with Kubernetes support. Now clients can deploy Pega with Kubernetes on AWS, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud, Pivotal, and Red Hat while removing technical lock-in, according to the company.

The Pega Cloud Choice Guarantee gives clients the flexibility to run their Pega applications on Pega's fully-managed Pega Cloud Services or on their Pega-certified cloud infrastructure provider of choice. At the same time, containerisation has changed the way organisations manage their cloud applications, with Kubernetes a key player in this space due to the fact it enables scalability, flexibility, and data security, according to Pega.

With this announcement, Pega now expands its Pega Cloud Choice Guarantee by supporting the following flavors of Kubernetes offered from leading cloud providers: AWS Elastic Kubernetes Service (EKS), Microsoft Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS), Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE), Pivotal Container Service (PKS), and Red Hat OpenShift.

This means Pega clients can host their Pega applications on these top cloud providers while also leveraging Kubernetes to orchestrate their containerisation strategies. This demonstrates Pega’s ongoing commitment to continually certify in-demand cloud choice options requested by clients, according to the company.

According to Pega, customers today want flexibility and scalability when it comes to their cloud deployments. As such, Pega manages the platform and in doing so enables customers to manage other issues. Clients also have the option to self-manage their Pega software on their preferred Pega-certified cloud infrastructure provider.

Regardless of which arrangement clients choose, Pega offers penalty-free migration to and from all these options if and when the business need arises,the company states.

Pegasystems CTO and vice president product marketing Don Schuerman says, “As organisations continue to turn to the cloud, they want a modern cloud architecture that gives them the flexibility and cost control needed to succeed in today’s fast-changing markets.

“Pega understands our clients have different needs, so we provide them powerful ways to manage their cloud deployments without taking any of their options away. By supporting containerisation with Kubernetes, we continue to provide the flexibility our clients need to run their applications while also future proofing their technology as they scale their business.”

Pega Cloud Choice Guarantee with Kubernetes is available now for all Pega clients currently operating on the current version of Pega Infinity.
