27 european technology companies submit a timetable to the eu commission on friday for the next generation of the internet with the focus on cloud computing. Politics and companies in europe are intended to develop the development of the 75-page paper in the coming years "data sovereign services" driving advancing with the offers of hyperscalers in the us and asia and thus make serious alternatives to the cloud services of amazon, alibaba, google and microsoft.
European cloud industry is intended to start worldwide standards
To the wressers of the "roadmap" accuses such as airbus, amadeus, atos, de-cix, deutsche telekom, ericsson, ionos, nokia, orange, ovhcloud, sap, schneider electric, siemens, telefonica and telecom italia. She developed her proposal after a round table with eu internal market commissioner thierry breton in december. The commission has just announced with an update for its industrial strategy to call a cloud alliance in the second quarter.
By 2025, the european cloud industry is intended according to the initiative "be known worldwide for their technological fuference and competitive reliability in terms of climate neutatility, cyber security, trustworthy data exchange and interoperability and proven worldwide standards". Through the development of high energy-efficient infrastructures, the use of low-consumable hardware and software, improved resource management, energy mixes, and an increased cooling performance of data centers, the eu will take a pioneering role in this field.
Definition of common standards
In order to create sustainable data services in the computer clouds and on the edge of the network with the so-called edge computing, the eu must focus on security and about "innovative hardware shutter technologies" insert, writes the it farm. Solutions that ensure safe communication networks, as well as an adequate management of cyber attacks are important.
Also, the demand of openness, interoperability and the ability to manage an okosystem with multiple providers is decisive in the phrases in the sense of the conceptual demand. The users were so at the same time enabled, "cloud edge services continue to adapt to their own needs". Due to the definition of common standards and the construction of central components, european actors could take a leading role.
The european infrastructure will be in the interest of efficient use "advanced network management and orchestration technology" as well as neutral connection services needed, it is called in the task book. Only in this way, innovative application trap can be realized in the coarse scale. In addition to fast landline connections, a powerful 5g mobile network is the prerequisite.
Existing european offers for infrastructure services had to be initiated, demand the signatories. The focus should be on "soveran options" lie, "comply with global standards in terms of price and reliability". Especially with online platforms, europe is behind after. A killer app for dafur could be legal compliant offers and standards for sharing above all non-personal machine data. Existing public and private initiatives such as the european cloud project gaia-x should be used, "to align yourself on this common goal".
"Nanotechnological components" in the form of "smart dust"
The eu should also prepare for big dataclets according to the industry representatives, "which are expected to be mature until 2030, are". To do this you pay "swarm computing" with the help of intelligent edge devices, "the automatic and safe work together to fulfill complex tasks". Such a computer swarm will "increasingly nanotechnological components" about in the form of "smart dust" include.
At the horizon, the companies also see collaborative robots and exo skeletal traces, advanced human-machine interfaces and interactive augmented reality environments. These were neuronal interfaces, computers that can understand emotions, as well as progress towards "general artificial intelligence". With such new forms of computational power, many questions about safety, ethics and sustainability should be linked to which the eu should face.
With such trends, the amount of data to be processed zetta-mabstabe achieved, ie the area of trilliar by bytes, the covenant estimates. So "the dependence of the company from the integration and availability of digital solutions the level of critical national infrastructures" reach. To prevent this challenge, forcibly more regulation and interdisciplinary work are required at different levels.
"Europe can already score in many areas today", explained ionos boss achim weib. He referred "competitive data centers, a strong open source culture or new technologies such as 5g". With gaia-x show the european it industry, "that she works together and produces together and fast carrying solutions". Further investments are necessary. He appealed to the commission, "together with us" to care, "that europe remains in eye-catching". Histaffing and governments of the member states should "take a role model function and even stroll on cloud provider from europe".
