Join our new event format – the monthly GREEN-CIS Tech-Talks, an open platform for the sharing of innovative projects related to sustainable Cloud infrastructures, Cloud services and Cloud use cases!
30 June, 2022
(And for the upcoming tech-talks every last Thursday of the month, from 2:00 pm to 3:00 pm)
Kurt Garloff, CTO | Sovereign Cloud Stack
„Simplify operations of sovereign cloud/container stacks with SCS“
Sovereign Cloud Stack (SCS) is one of the two foundation projects for Gaia-X that has received funding from BMWK (German Ministry for Economic Affairs and Climate Action). Together with GXFS (Gaia-X Federation Services, the other one) a rather complete, modular and open source tool kit is provided that makes delivering and operating a Gaia-X conformant federated platform a lot easier.
This presentation will use the comprehensive view of digital sovereignty to motivate the vision and philosophy behind SCS and introduce the standards and technologies as well as the operational practices that support this goal.
The public sector is facing several major challenges as a result of current disruptive trends. Three major ones are: digitization of processes, staff shortages, and the need to digitize and port business applications to the cloud. Digitizing and automating processes using artificial intelligence (AI) would help address the challenges incrementally. AI must be made available to the public sector at an economically justifiable cost, while retaining data sovereignty. This requires the creation of extensible and configurable AI products. Here, the providers of expert IT themselves must be enabled to customize and configure these AI products without AI knowledge and minimal programming effort and to operate them securely in the cloud with a provider based in the EU. This is where elevait comes in. In the presentation, exemplary use cases, technical requirements and task packages will be outlined and discussed.
What is the focus of the GC Tech-Talks?
The GREEN-CIS Tech-Talks focus on projects that have the potential to improve digital infrastructures and cloud services, as well as on the use cases that rely on these infrastructures and services. Interesting topics include, but are not limited to:
Who can participate in the meetings?
Anyone who is interested in the discussed topics.
Who can present a project in the meetings?
Anyone who has a potentially relevant contribution to the community. The presentations can focus on projects in different maturity stages and should include technical aspects (i.e.: an initial technical concept or an overview of the implementation). Since the Tech-Talks are open, all speakers should use discretion regarding the disclosure of confidential information.

The story behind the GREEN-CIS Tech-Talk
In the summer of 2021, 28 partners joined forces to submit a project proposal to the call for expressions of interest for the IPCEI-CIS (Important Project of Common European Interest on Cloud Infrastructure and Services). The proposal was submitted under the name GREEN-CIS (General Purpose Resilient and Secure Energy Efficient Computing Infrastructure Network) and focused on developing and building a virtual, sustainable Cloud-Edge system for Europe, based on a decentralized, multi-provider open-source ecosystem that can operate as a seamless unit. Not all partners made it through the pre-selection process, but they still share the vision of an open, sustainable future of the Cloud infrastructure and services. The GREEN-CIS Tech-Talks were devised as an open community to continue driving this vision forward and to lay the grounds for an innovative and collaborative ecosystem for joint projects.
