Can anyone explain the Architecture that Openspan (Pega Robotics) follows? What type of DB the Openspan use for storing the intermediate results?
i see it as a Client - Server architecture with its local Database. if you have any diagramatic representation that would give me a clear picture, Kindly Share.
Also how should we handle the Server Sizing like (memory, Network Issues?) . Are there any points that we need to take care of before deploying our solution to Server? During my experience I never deployed my builds to Openspan Server. I used to handover my builds directly to the clients.( Even it may be a RDA or RPA solution).
Pega Robotics is a desktop application created in C# (for the most part). It has no server or internal database. Everything is stored in memory. When you execute an automation and get results back, those are not stored anywhere. Should you wish to retain any data you've collected, you would need to provide a means for storing that data. Your machine requirements may vary depending on what you are automating. You can follow the guidelines in the installation guide as a minimum, however if your solution is large and you are performing complex parallel tasks, you would need to plan for that accordingly in terms of the power of your desktops.
Since Pega Robotics Runtime isn't really a client-server application, I think a diagram wouldn't show much more than the desktop unless using the Pega Robotics Deployment Portal below.
Pega Robotics Deployment Portal is a cloud-based (soon to have an on-premise version) product that can be used to manage your deployment packages to your end-users. Below is the user guide for the Portal. It is a robust solution allowing you to manage the deployment packages to your end-users, their runtime settings, and to get some high-level operational reporting on what automations are being executed and how long they are taking. Keep in-mind though, that this is not a database that you can write your own data to.
I am unaware of any documentation on the on-premise version of the Portal, so I do not have any sizing information. For now, it is a cloud-based solution.
1) Do we not have any software executable for OpenSpan (Pega) Deployment Portal (Management Console) yet.
2) How can we create an account for cloud-based Deployment Portal, for my organization / domain. I understand, this cloud-based Deployment Portal is a Public Cloud network, please confirm if otherwise.
3) By when can we expect Deployment Portal on-premise product to be available.
Currently, the Pega Robotic Automation Deployment Portal is only available in the cloud. Each organization utilizing this has their own cloud instance - it is not public. In order to set up an instance, you will need to discuss this with your Sales Executive. The on premise version release date has not been announced at this time.
