GAIA-X Kick off Summit – Data Centre World
On the 27th of January, Cloud Expo Europe, Data Centre World and Big Data & AI World Frankfurt will be hosting their first GAIA-X virtual summit, bringing together founding and day 1 members of the project to discuss the ideas behind GAIA-X, its potential use cases and the plans for the project in 2021.
About this Webinar
GAIA-X is a project initiated by Europe, for Europe, with the aim of developing common requirements for a European Data Infrastructure. It is based on the principles of Openness & Transparency, Interoperability, Federated systems, Authenticity and Trust, reflecting the core values of the European Community.
This summit is for all who are interested Data Protection, Compliance, Ecosystems, Digital Business Models, Data Sovereignty and Digital Transformation in general.
In 5 main panels, we will be looking at the current implementation of Gaia-X. Not to discuss technical details, but to understand how the core values of Gaia-X determine its whole architecture. Thus we will look at Gaia-X from both a user’s and an architect’s perspective.
9:00-9:25 – Opening Panel
What Gaia-X is and what Gaia-X is not. Learn more about the underlying principles of Gaia-X and its potential for providers, end-users and society as a whole.
9:30-10:10 – Products and Services Panel
One of the main goals of Gaia-X is to provide a framework inherently favourable to the creation of new and innovative business models. But what does it take to be part of Gaia-X? How can one become a node in this ecosystem? And what can the end-user gain from all this?
10:20-11:00 – Software & Architecture Panel
Meet the architects behind the ecosystem. How do we make sure the underlying principles are “by design” part of the system? Who are the actors in this ecosystem? How do data and infrastructure come together to form one?
11:10-11:50 – Operational Infrastructure Panel
Digging deeper, this panel looks at how physical infrastructure is seen by the Gaia-X ecosystem. What happens if a node is down? How to prevent such an incident? And finally, can Gaia-X contribute to the much-needed advancement towards Green IT?
11:50 – 12:20 Lunch Break
12:20-13:00 – Storage, Compute and Network Panel
This panel will outline the technical requirements of computing and network technology of Gaia-X nodes.
13:10-14:50 – Certification and Accreditation Panel
How is this ecosystem regulated and how do actors gain trust from each other? This panel looks at procedures and mechanisms that allow actors to explicitly qualify for Gaia-X requirements.
15:00-15:25 – Closing Panel
A wrap-up and opportunity to discuss open questions as well as a glance at future developments.
