Shaping the future data infrastructure together –
secure, open and transparent
The Gaia-X Federation Services (GXFS) represent the minimum technical requirements necessary to set up and operate a cloud-based self-sovereign data infrastructure ecosystem. 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.
The goal of Gaia-X is to foster innovation and data sovereignty. This is achieved by establishing a digitalecosystem, where data is made available, collated, and exchanged in a trustworthy environment, with data owners retaining full sovereignty over their data. Gaia-X enables and promotes the creation of the so-called Gaia-X Federations in the market. Federations are self-determined ecosystems where individual Participants join forces to offer services to be consumed within the Federation, to provide value to its Participants and to create further market value.
