Service Level Agreement for Pega Cloud

Updated on February 16, 2023

This content applies only to Pega Cloud environments

This article is part of the Pega Cloud Subscription Documentation.

The Pega Cloud production Environment Service Level Agreement (SLA) is a policy that governs the use of Pega Cloud production Environments under the terms of the Client's Pega Cloud Subscription Agreement.

Pega will use commercially reasonable efforts to make the Pega Cloud production Environment available with a Monthly Uptime Percentage of 99.95% (the service level agreement, or “SLA”), as calculated below.


  • "Scheduled Availability" means the total number of minutes in the subscription month during which the production Environment is scheduled to be available, per the Pega Cloud Maintenance Policy.
  • "Unavailability" means the number of minutes that the production Environment was not Available.
  • “Available” means the production Environment URL(s) is responding to requests.

Exclusions:  Pega cannot guarantee Availability due to issues such as, but not limited to:

  1. Using unsupported integrations
  2. Using the service not in accordance with the documentation or Acceptable Use (see the Acceptable Use Policy)
  3. Exceeding the contractual entitlements under the applicable production schedule
  4. Connectivity issues between client and Pega Cloud which are outside of Pega’s controls

In the event that the Monthly Uptime Percentage does not meet the SLA during a subscription month, client is eligible to receive a credit equal to 10% of the subscription fees for that subscription month. Pega will apply any SLA credits against subscription fees due under the applicable production schedule in future months.

To receive an SLA credit, client must submit a written request to Pega. The request must include the dates and times of each incident of unavailability, within 30 days of the end of the subscription month in which the client alleges that the Monthly Uptime Percentage did not meet the SLA.  If the Monthly Uptime Percentage is confirmed by Pega not to have met the SLA, then Pega will issue the SLA credit to client within one billing cycle following the month in which the request is received.

Client's sole and exclusive remedy for the subscription not meeting the SLA is the receipt of the SLA credit as described in this policy. Any unavailability that is the basis for an SLA credit cannot be the basis for a future claim.

Client acknowledges that this SLA does not apply to unavailability that may result from temporary suspension of the Pega Cloud subscription in the event of a denial-of-service (DoS) attack or other external event that Pega reasonably determines may create a risk to the subscription. During such times, Pegasystems will use reasonable efforts to give the client prompt email notice of the suspension, as well as updates regarding resumption of service.
