Supporting European data sovereignty standards on the Chinese cloud platform “COSMOPlat”

With Hai­er COSMO IoT Eco­sys­tem Tech­no­lo­gy Co, Ltd joi­ning the IDSA, “COS­MO­Plat” is among the first indus­tri­al Inter­net plat­forms out­side the Euro­pean Uni­on to adopt the Euro­pean values of data and cloud sov­er­eig­n­ty and to imple­ment them in their archi­tec­tu­re.

“COS­MO­Plat Mass Cus­to­mi­zed Model to GAIA‑X Archi­tec­tu­re” is a joi­ned pro­ject of Hai­er and the Fraun­ho­fer Insti­tu­te for Soft­ware and Sys­tems Engi­nee­ring (ISST). The pro­ject aims at a fea­si­bi­li­ty and poten­ti­al stu­dy for the imple­men­ta­ti­on of GAIA‑X princi­ples and Inter­na­tio­nal Data Spaces stan­dards on the COS­MO­Plat plat­form.

“It is very much wel­co­me that glo­bal com­pa­nies with pro­duc­tion sites and sup­plier net­works in Euro­pe like Hai­er do not only sup­port the deve­lo­p­ment of open stan­dards for data sov­er­eig­n­ty, but also actively con­tri­bu­te to it”

The Inter­na­tio­nal Data Spaces initia­ti­ve plays a key role in the secu­re and open GAIA‑X data eco­sys­tem in Euro­pe: The Inter­na­tio­nal Data Spaces refe­rence archi­tec­tu­re for main­tai­ning data sov­er­eig­n­ty when sharing data direct­ly con­tri­bu­tes to GAIA‑X's goal of crea­ting an archi­tec­tu­re of stan­dards.
