The first European cloud computing platform has appeared. EU authorities say they don’t want to depend on platforms that operate in the US and China.

The authorities of Germany and France announced the creation of the first European platform for cloud computing Gaia-X. Its creators note that they want to create a competitor for the same services from other countries –– the USA and China. For the first time that the platform will appear, they spoke back in 2019. However, now the authorities have introduced commercial partners – these are 22 German and French companies, including Dassault Systemes, Orange, Siemens, SAP, Bosch and Deutsche Telekom.

European officials said Amazon Web Services (47.8%) dominated the global public cloud computing market, followed by Microsoft Azure (15.5%), Alibaba (7.7%), Google (4%), and IBM ( 1.8%). None of them represent Europe.

“During the crisis, companies massively switched to remote work. Therefore, the need for a secure European cloud solution has become urgent. We are not China and not the USA, we are European countries with our values ​​and our economic interests that we want to protect, ”said French Minister of Economics and Finance Bruno Le Mer.

Gaia-X will use software and analytical systems based on artificial intelligence (AI) and will provide a cloud …

broadband – types & their benefits to cloud computing

BEGIN ARTICLE PREVIEW:

Listen : Audio version of this article Broadband changed the entire prospect of the internet with its appearance in the early 2000s. Before broadband, one could not have phone calls at the same time as using the internet because only one could receive signals if used simultaneously.But, with the start of the first decade of the 21st century, the world witnessed a huge transformation of the internet that enabled people to make phones call and use the internet simultaneously. Thanks to the splitting of signals in broadband connections, people no longer have to use dial-up connections and wait for one phone line to disconnect to be able to use the internet. This is what broadband is, a highly convenient solution to the crawling and agonizing dial-up connection. There is no doubt about the fact that broadband is used widely in the Uk, but do we all know different connections available within it? If your answer is no then we got you covered. In this article, we will talk about different broadband connection types, how they differ from each other, and what benefits each one offers.  Fiber connectionThis new and much advanced type of connection is spreading its wings at a …

Cloud Computing: Deployment Models – Verdict

cloud computing: deployment models – verdict

BEGIN ARTICLE PREVIEW:

A range of cloud models are available for deploying and managing enterprise cloud computing environments. Some enterprises demand that sensitive, mission-critical apps remain on-premises, while others can access cloud features through a private cloud, and others still may be offloaded to the public cloud. Over the past two years, management solutions that support hybrid cloud environments and, increasingly, multi-cloud management have grown in importance.
Listed below are the key deployment models for cloud computing environments, as identified by GlobalData.
Public cloud
Public clouds are computing services typically associated with leading public cloud services, like AWS, Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud, which are available over the public internet under a pay-per-usage model. Public cloud IaaS solutions include on-demand compute and on-demand storage, in which clients pay for the capacity they use. Public cloud solutions are attractive to customers because there is no upfront capital expenditure (capex), and providers typically offer very flexible contracting models.
Private cloud
Private clouds are typically designed for the benefit of a single enterprise. Private clouds come in different forms and can be distinguished according to where the cloud infrastructure is located, i.e., in an enterprise data centre (on-premises) or a service provider or infrastructure vendor’ …

France, Germany back European cloud computing ‘moonshot’

france, germany back european cloud computing ‘moonshot’

BEGIN ARTICLE PREVIEW:

by Thomson Reuters

By Nadine Schimroszik and Mathieu Rosemain
BERLIN/PARIS (Reuters) – France and Germany threw their weight on Thursday behind plans to create a cloud computing ecosystem that seeks to reduce Europe’s dependence on Silicon Valley giants Amazon, Microsoft and Google.
The project, dubbed Gaia-X, will establish common standards for storing and processing data on servers that are sited locally and comply with the European Union’s strict laws on data privacy.
German Economy Minister Peter Altmaier, speaking in Berlin, described Gaia-X as a “moonshot” that would help reassert Europe’s technological sovereignty, and invited other countries and companies to join.
“We are not China, we are not the United States, we are European countries with our own values and with our own economic interest that we want to defend,” his French counterpart Bruno Le Maire said in Paris in a joint video news conference.
The initiative comes as France and Germany step up economic cooperation to offset the impact of the coronavirus pandemic. Both have backed an EU-wide recovery plan while Berlin has just announced a major fiscal stimulus.
In an initial step, 22 French and German companies will set up a non-profit foundation to …

Germany, France hope cloud data project to boost sovereignty

germany, france hope cloud data project to boost sovereignty

BEGIN ARTICLE PREVIEW:

BERLIN (AP) — Germany and France on Thursday launched a project to set up a European cloud computing platform that they hope will enhance European economic sovereignty in the wake of the coronavirus crisis and break the continent’s dependence on U.S. and Chinese companies.The platform, entitled GAIA-X, is meant to be up and running — at least in prototype form — at the beginning of next year and be open to users from outside Europe that commit to adhere to European standards. German Economy Peter Altmaier said that the aim is “nothing less than a European moonshot in digital policy.”ADVERTISEMENTGermany and France will set up a non-profit association to coordinate and organize the data infrastructure, Altmaier said. Conceived last year and initially announced in October, GAIA-X follows on the heels of an existing push by the European Union’s two biggest economies to set up a car battery consortium aimed at catching up with Asian rivals.The cloud computing project “could not have been more timely” as Europe tries to dig itself out of a deep recession caused by the coronavirus crisis, French Economy Minister Bruno Le Maire said. “With the COVID crisis, companies massively shifted to teleworking.

Full cloud ahead: Storage giant NetApp buys cloud cost control startup Spot

full cloud ahead: storage giant netapp buys cloud cost control startup spot

BEGIN ARTICLE PREVIEW:

In its third acquisition this year, Data storage firm NetApp Inc. said Wednesday it’s buying the Israeli cloud infrastructure optimization startup Spot.
The companies didn’t reveal the amount, but a source told Calcalist the price was $450 million. Spot had raised about $52 million in funding and employs 150 people in Tel Aviv, San Francisco and London.
Spot sells a platform that helps companies to optimize their cloud computing spending across multiple providers in order to save them more money. It uses artificial intelligence software to help its customers manage cloud workloads across different data centers, claiming it can achieve savings of 80% on average.
Spot does that primarily by tapping into excess server capacity offered by public cloud providers such as Amazon Web Services Inc., Microsoft Corp., Google LLC and Alibaba Cloud, the subsidiary of Alibaba Group Holding Ltd.
These cloud companies sell excess data center capacity, which is usually referred to as “spot instances,” at significantly discounted rates, rather than not sell it at all. But most enterprises fail to benefit from these cheaper prices because they can’t predict their availability.
But Spot says it can accurately predict the availability of this excess capacity thanks to its AI-powered software. …

cloud computing takes on the legacy issue | pymnts.com

BEGIN ARTICLE PREVIEW:

Isn’t it surprising to know that 70 percent of financial institutions are just now adopting cloud computing solutions? Or how about this fact: over 90 percent of the world’s top 100 banks still use physical mainframes running 20th century style. So, what’s holding up the upgrades?It’s that old devil, legacy, and a smidgen of caveat emptor on the part of upgrading banks. But known unknowns aside, this is not the economic climate in which to do business without agile, resilient cloud computing at your beck.That point is driven home with numerous examples in PYMNTS’ latest Digital Banks And The Power Of The Cloud Tracker® done in collaboration with NuoDB. The new Tracker provides a detailed map of the cloud computing terrain for financial institutions (FIs), and the competitive urgency it creates.“Challengers such as Monzo and Revolut have turned to the cloud to support core banking services, and many FinTechs and digital- or mobile-only banks are following their lead,” the report states. “Legacy banks must examine how to best adopt or develop cloud solutions of their own to provide that same nimble customer support during a time when customers are going digital first and branch second.”The …
