Shaping the future data infrastructure together –
secure, open and transparent
Innovation through digital sovereignty – that’s the goal of Gaia-X. This is achieved by establishing an ecosystem in which data is made available, collated and shared in a trustworthy environment where users always retain sovereignty over their data. What emerges is not a cloud, but a federated system that links many cloud service providers and users together.
GXFS-DE is the project name of an initiative funded by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Climate Action, based on a decision by the German Parliament. It has been established to kickstart the development of Gaia-X Federation Services as specified in a joint community process. The resulting specifications and open-source code out of this funded project are in ownership of the Gaia-X European Association for Data and Cloud AISBL – Brussels, Belgium.
The eco Association of the Internet Industry, with its Head Office in Cologne, Germany, acts as a procurer to coordinate the specification work and to award the contractors for the implementation, based on an open EU-wide tender process.
