Utilities have taken a step towards a smarter grid by virtualizing critical grid management applications within the control center, using VMware Cloud Foundation and North American Electric Reliability Corporation Critical Infrastructure Protection (NERC CIP) compliant VMware Validated Designs. It has never been a better time to extend that capability into modernizing substations with the availability of IEC-61850-3 certified servers built for substations and VMware vSphere supporting latency-sensitive workloads in the substation.
