We are looking to deploy a new Pega application (v8.5) to Azure and are investigating supported deployment models.
Our current deployment patterns include multiple Linux VMs hosting multiple Pivotal TC Server nodes with a MS SQL Server database hosted on a separate Windows VM.
The Docker container option is not an option at the moment because we are also trying to establish a non container based deployment pattern for a pure lift and shift of some of our other existing Pega application environments (similar to the stack mentioned above).
For database we are settling on an Azure SQL Managed Instance.
For App server we want to investigate the option of using Tomcat/Linux on an Azure App Service.
We will have a cluster of Pega Tomcat nodes (all on their own individual Azure App Service instance) configured to act as "web nodes" and "background nodes" etc.
We will also have an external Kafka server hosted in Azure.
Does Pega support this type of Azure deployment (on Tomcat/Linux Azure App service, with Azure SQL Managed Instance)?
