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.

On the basis of technical specifications, services based on open-source code are being developed. They will then be developed into operational services and continuously improved by the Gaia-X Community. Read more
