Our scope of services
Nowadays cloud computing is used in just about every industry and by many different sizes of companies, because the cloud transformation is one of the deciding factors in remaining competitive. In light of the strategic importance of cloud computing, Fraunhofer ISST deals with the construction of sovereign cloud infrastructure and current technological and political developments and trends which have a significant effect on the cloud transformation of companies.
At Fraunhofer ISST, together with our partners, we develop sovereign cloud infrastructures based on standards and initiatives such as GAIA_X or the International Data Spaces Association (IDSA), with a focus on the development of open source software components. Using microservice architectures with lightweight interfaces and using container technologies, we drive cloud-native computing forward in our projects. Furthermore, we develop solutions for the simultaneous use of cloud offers from different cloud providers as part of a multi-cloud strategy. In addition, we deal with the use of cloud computing in connection with other trends such as edge computing, artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things or the digital twin.
