The system is designed to make sure there is no vendor lock-in. We adhere to the principle of “owned by no one and open to everyone”.
We have implemented a combination of a deltaDAO technology stack, based on web3 technology, and EuProGigant edge computing technologies which serve as Gaia-X nodes in the infrastructure ecosystem. This ensures an affordable and open platform. Furthermore, Gaia-X on Edge leads to full trust and resilience at the shop floor level, flexibility and reduced energy and data consumption.
Compute-to-Data and Compute-to-Edge
Compute-to-Data (CtD) allows for data to stay on-premises while other companies can run compute jobs on that data. The data must not be transferred to third parties any more to allow them to process data analytics on it. CtD allows for easier and more secure data sharing, as data owners do not have to relinquish control over their data. Clear rules for trust and policies regarding the algorithm enabled for CtD is needed.
Compute-to-Edge (CtE) completes the edge-to-cloud continuum. CtE is the application of compute-to-data directly at the edge, enabling technical data sovereignty where the data originates. This way, unnecessary replication, transport, and storage of data can be avoided, reducing the data footprint. CtE allows for AI-based manufacturing predictions and predictive maintenance on sensitive sensor data. The data can stay with the machine. This enables a sovereign data fabric across fleets of edge device.
EuProGigant demonstrates Gaia-X compliant self-descriptions. This means that our Portal adheres to the Gaia-X Trust Framework, which verifies the existence and veracity of participant and service offering characteristics. The Trust Framework makes sure that data protection, transparency, security, portability and flexibility are safeguarded.
The latest version of the Compliance Service has been integrated into the EuProGigant portal and self-descriptions have been created for the entire EuProGigant infrastructure in accordance with the latest version of the Gaia-X Trust Framework. These are validated in real time by the Gaia-X Compliance Service.
