Leaseweb Global, a leading hosting and cloud services company, has announced that it has officially become a member of Gaia-X AISBL, the European Association for Data and Cloud, which was founded in January 2021.
Gaia-X was a project initiated by market parties in the European Union to create federated secure data infrastructures jointly developed based on EU rules. Organisations involved in Gaia-X like Leaseweb, are committed to working together to design a next-generation sovereign European cloud infrastructure, covering the needs of business and residents in Europe.
Leaseweb is engaged in the mission to design and rollout these new cloud infrastructures based on the Gaia-X principles and has delegated three senior executives with different skillsets to participate in key parts of the Gaia-X working groups. The Leaseweb team includes Robert van der Meulen, Leaseweb Global’s Director of Product Strategy; Jaqueline van de Werken, Leaseweb Global’s Group General Counsel responsible for Regulatory, Legal and Compliance, both supporting the Netherlands Hub of Gaia-X; and Marcus Busch, CEO of Leaseweb Deutschland, as part of the DE-hub.
Busch said: “To create this open, transparent and secure digital ecosystem successfully, international representatives from business, science and politics need to work closely together.”Click below to share this article
