Gaia-X backers officially establish European cloud association

Wednesday 16 September 2020 | 09:24 CET | News

Twenty-two founding members have officially signed the document to establish Gaia-X AISBL, the association at the core of the European cloud project Gaia-X. The association aims to build digital infrastructure for Europe. Gaia-X AISBL is a non-profit association that will support the progress of the project through funding and commitment from its members.

The founding process has not yet been formally completed. The next steps are the establishment of its headquarters in Brussels and the architecture of the organisation. The founding members of Gaia-X AISBL invite national and multinational, European and non-European companies, partners from science and politics, to join the association. Members work closely together to define the standards from both a provider and a user perspective, as well as developing prototypes and products.

German carmaker BMW has joined Gaia-X as it considers the cloud to be the future of automotive software. Joining the Gaia-X project is a logical step for the group, head of DevOps Platform and Cloud Technologies Marco Goergmaier said.
