Hewlett Packard Enterprise has announced solutions to help organizations advance data monetization by tapping into Gaia-X, an emerging federated data infrastructure supported by more than 300 organizations in Europe and globally.
The HPE Solution Framework for Gaia-X was designed for companies, service provider that want to get ready to participate in Gaia-X. It supports virtually all capabilities that are required to both provide and consume data and services in a decentralized, federated environment. As a result, organizations can advance their ability to create value from data, tap into huge distributed data pools, and strengthen their sovereignty over their data-driven business model.
The framework is based on a reference architecture, leveraging key components of HPE’s software portfolio, third-party software, and the Cloud28+ business platform, a marketplace for the monetization of data and services. Individual solution components and entire solution environments are available as a service via HPE GreenLake cloud services.
HPE also announced the HPE Roadmap Service for Gaia-X which helps customers assess their Gaia-X readiness and develop a roadmap.
Gaia-X enables sharing and aggregation of data, insights, and services at scale without a central intermediary. This creates a level playing field, with power and opportunities distributed across all parties. Gaia-X is emerging as a focal point of this endeavor. Gaia-X connects centralized and decentralized infrastructures to strengthen the ability to both access and share data securely and confidently. Gaia-X is now entering its operational phase with first flagship projects, and first Gaia-X-compliant solutions are expected to be certified in December 2021.
A central element of the HPE Solution Framework for Gaia-X is a reference architecture that defines the foundation of the components necessary to build Gaia-X use cases. It ensures secure infrastructure operation for decentralized workloads and includes a central governance structure.
An active contributor to the Gaia-X architecture and standards, HPE will equip its solution framework with the required interfaces, connectors and services so customers can seamlessly connect to the Gaia-X platform and ecosystem.
The HPE Solution Framework for Gaia-X and the HPE Roadmap Service for Gaia-X are available in Europe. Individual solution components and entire solution environments are available via HPE GreenLake cloud services. Gaia-X interfaces and connectors will be made available as soon as Gaia-X specifications are final.
