Cloud&Heat GC Tech-Talks: Monthly discussions on projects and use cases
The Tech-Talks provide a platform to discuss projects that have the potential to improve digital infrastructures and cloud services, as well as the use cases that rely on these infrastructures and services.
What to expect in the GC Tech-Talks?
- Concepts, technologies or prototypical implementations that improve the sustainability of cloud infrastructures and services
- Concepts or technologies to achieve interoperability, security, scalability and openness of cloud services in Multi-Cloud settings
- Initial implementation and prototypes of the concepts that are being jointly developed in communities such as Gaia-X
- Use cases that rely on Cloud services and determine the requirements that the next generation Cloud technologies must fulfill.
Speakers on 28 July, 2022
- Lothar Geßlein | 23 Technologies
„How to create beautiful cloud native landscapes?“
Cloud computing with Kubernetes has evolved to a widely accepted de-facto standard without vendor lock-in for creating scalable and flexible applications for critical business systems of record. 23KE, based on the open source project Gardener, is a production proven open-source Kubernetes-as-a-Service solution to fully automate and operate a global, multi-cloud, and hybrid Kubernetes service. It often serves as a fundamental gateway platform for important cloud services.
We will demonstrate how we can enable the Gaia-X vision of an open, independent multi provider and cloud-edge continuum and how we enabled #Cleura (previously known as City Network) to do Managed Kubernetes right on their public cloud offering.

„Cloud Services for Earth Observation Data Exploitation “
A widening gap exists between spatial Earth Observation data and its users and beneficiaries.
With repositories growing to hundreds PBs and daily data streams exceeding half a PB, offline manual interaction with it is not feasible anymore. Cloud services help bridge this gap with seamless data access and processing in an automated value chains.
You have an interesting project? Present it in the GC Tech-Talks!
If you have a potentially relevant contribution to this community, then we certainly want to know your ideas.
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).
The Tech-Talks are open to everyone. Thus, all speakers should use discretion regarding the disclosure of confidential information. Please submit your ideas for Tech-Talks to firstname.lastname@example.org
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.
