Choice of infrastructure for Pega Deployment Manager

Hi Support Community,

Posting this topic to gather recommendations on choice of infrastructure for leveraging Deployment Manager for on premise Pega applications for our customer.

We recommended of having a dedicated Pega instance (where Deployment Manager will be installed) to function as the Orchestrator for the CI/CD pipeline. The customer plans to use the Orchestrator for multiple Pega applications in future.

In order to reduce infrastructure cost and support, customer is asking if we can reuse one of our existing Pega Development instance /infrastructure for this. We can foresee following disadvantages in going with that approach –

  1. By combining the Application Dev and Deployment Manager Pega instances into one , we are increasing dependency as future downtimes in one will impact the other.
  2. A platform version upgrade need for the Application (sharing the infrastructure) mandates upgrade of Deployment Manager Version.

What are the other limitations or challenges others can think of ?
