How to Manage Your Pega Cloud Instances
You can perform the following maintenance tasks in Pega Cloud Instance Manager (PCM):
Hibernate the instance no longer runs but its data remains within the application server and
database volumes. When in hibernation, you are not charged for the instance. This option is useful
when you plan to pause and resume project development. The data is intact and available when the
instance is restarted.
Restart Restarts a hibernating instance. Typically, it resumes operating status within a few
minutes.
