GE Digital and Amazon Web Services (AWS) are partnering to help utility organizations more rapidly modernize their power grids. The relationship involves GE Digital's new grid operating system software -- known as GridOS -- paired with various AWS services.
Take a closer look, and GE Digital’s Advanced Distribution Management System (ADMS) software will support the pure AWS cloud service as well as AWS Outposts -- which delivers the AWS cloud capabilities as an on-premises service. Early adopters include Vector Ltd., a distributor of electricity and gas in New Zealand.
Key executives quoted in the announcement include:
- Mahesh Sudhakaran, general manager of Grid Software at GE Digital.
- Howard Gefen, general manager for Energy and Utilities at AWS.
GE GridOS has a partner ecosystem for global solution integrators and hyperscalers to "help utilities advance IT and OT alignment, adopt hybrid cloud, develop new applications on the GridOS platform, and accelerate transformation to a scalable and flexible grid built for change."
Additional GridOS partners beyond AWS include Accenture and Infosys.
