Utilities seeking Grid Modernization require new innovative approaches to the standard challenge of protection and control. There has been an evolution from electromechanical relays to Intelligent Electronic Devices (IEDs), e.g. protection relays, to new virtualized Software Defined Systems – improving reliability, availability and manageability without compromising security. The many virtues in migrating to a Software-Defined Data Center (SDDC) significantly outweigh the limitations of deploying more dedicated hardware platforms throughout the data center.
