SCADA virtualization done correctly can dramatically reduce downtime and maintenance of a SCADA system. This offer provides a highly qualified team to help you manage the transition from physical to virtual servers and clients, or to upgrade an existing virtualized system.
Documentation of a virtualized SCADA system is the key to a successful project. Good documentation makes long term maintenance and upkeep simpler and cheaper. The following documentation will be provided as part of this offer:
- SCADA software licensing support contract information
- SCADA, Windows, VMware, and generic software licensing roles
- Server roles, generic software, and SCADA software installed per guest (virtual computer)
- Virtual server specification criteria
- Domain Active Directory (security) specification (Domain Local, Global Groups, example users/computers, organizational units, etc.)
- SCADA security matrix specification
- Bill of materials
- Installation map
- Network drawings (Visio)
- Subnet and IP address specification and list
- Firewall rules specification
SCADA virtualization can be challenging for both a SCADA team, and an IT/IS team if it their first time interacting on a large scale. This is typically because the two teams have different missions. This offer includes SCADA engineers trained on both SCADA and IT/IS aspects of virtualized systems. We enjoy bringing together SCADA and IT/IS teams to create great systems that meet stakeholder requirements.
Successful SCADA virtualization projects require knowledge of multiple technologies. Below is a list of some of the different areas of expertise required.
- VMware training and certifications
- Wonderware / CitectSCADA training and certifications
- Networking training and certifications
- Site specific training and requirements
This offer includes people with the skillset listed above, and a desire to understand your SCADA and IT/IS needs and requirements. Each client has specific requirements that our team will learn and incorporate into the design.
