“We very much welcome the fact that Structura-X is focusing on the implementation of the Gaia-X standards. With Exoscale, we already offer a European solution to enable companies to host their IT workloads in compliance with the GDPR. The new initiative is an important step to enable digital sovereignty in Europe,” says Mathias Nöbauer, CEO of Exoscale and Director Cloud, A1 Digital.
The new project will further strengthen the European cloud market and data sovereignty.
