Gaia-X: Europe's new cloud computing platform

It seems that Europe decided to get rid of it America in terms of cloud computing services, creating "Gaia-X".

A team of 22 companies from France and Germany is developing a new platform in cloud, which will be released soon and hopes to help European countries get rid of their dependence on USA for cloud computing services.

In accordance with Reuters, the entity that manages the Gaia-X platform will be registered as a non-profit company, under Belgian law. The finance ministers of Germany and France will soon and officially announce the progress of the project in the media.

The companies that have undertaken this project estimate that it will be ready to start in early 2021 and hope that it will put an end to Europe's dependence on the United States in this area.

If all goes well, Gaia-X will be able to compete with services such as Google Cloud Platform, Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, Alibaba and IBM, which so far lead the field of cloud computing and data hosting services.

Both France and Germany have repeatedly referred to this issue of sovereignty and security, as their data is hosted on servers owned by Silicon Valley companies.

Recent geopolitical turmoil and trade wars between countries have worried European politicians, who no longer feel safe hosting their countries' data on servers in the United States and China.

Creating a safer local Cloud environment will not only benefit European countries, but will also be in line with the European Commission's strategy for a single digital marketplace.

The GAIA-X project was designed in Germany and Minister Peter Altmeier is responsible for it. Several companies and research institutes from different countries are currently participating in the initiative, including some big names such as SAP, Siemens, Deutsche Telekom and Bosch of Germany, as well as the French company Atos, which previously headed the European Commissioner Thierry Breton.
