VEP for Partner Applications

VEP is open to partner applications. As shown in the figure, the native services and Docker services developed by Venios are equivalent and parallel to those of partners. Docker containers are basically used as an execution platform for all algorithms of partners. The Docker containers encapsulate various execution environments for the partner components.

The bottom layer “grid input” describes the components that are stored in the customer’s infrastructure. Any infrastructure is connected to a server within the customer network by means of various protocols. The so-called Concentrator, a lightweight application, runs permanently and bundles the various devices in the customer’s network into a single data stream which is transmitted encrypted to VEP in the azure storages via VPN.

The middle layer “Venios” represents the backend and the core of the application. Data is stored in a scalable cloud storage. Information is exchanged between services through the Azure service bus. All native services were developed by Venios itself. You can access the Azure API directly without detours.

The algorithms at the partner level build on the RestAPI. Through the API, they have the ability to access both the static data and dynamic events in the system.
Partner Frontend Services: These Docker containers provide any frontend and can be developed by the partner.
Partner Backend Services: These Docker containers are externally invisible services which can be Usecases.

Stedin in Rotterdam foresee the challenges along with this trend and take steps into actively managing the grid.
