The STACKIT way of cloud computing: sovereign and secure for an independent Europe – digital, leading

It has been 6 years since the German Schwarz Group, one of the world’s leading retail groups with the well-known companies Lidl and Kaufland, has entered the cloud computing market with the STACKIT Cloud. From the very beginning, sovereignty and independence were key factors when building their own cloud platform. Being their own most critical customer, the STACKIT Cloud has come a long way ever since. Since 2022 STACKIT has been offering their cloud services to third-party companies outside their own group.

The German way of Cloud Computing – Compliance with GDPR guaranteed

One key factor of the STACKIT Cloud is their servers based in Germany. While US-based providers are subject to the Cloud Act and data on their clouds may be accessed by US governmental authorities, STACKIT guarantees full compliance with GDPR. That makes it a perfect fit for many partners and customers with very critical data subject to KRITIS, such as public institutions, the financial and health sector but also AI and security providers.

Here to stay: Economic Solidity and Independence

With the strength of the largest retail group in Europe, STACKIT is here to stay. While other providers may be bought by global players or merge when the market turns into a consolidation phase, STACKIT can keep on focusing on their own cloud and their own vision. Clearly, by belonging to a large retail group, STACKIT is also able to make decisions based on quality and not on numbers. As one result, STACKIT prefers open-source standards and doesn’t promote vendor lock-ins.

A Rising Star in the Cloud World

STACKIT’s vision and their work towards that vision has been recognized by many partners and leading analysts. One of STACKIT’s latest achievement is the award as Rising Star at the 2023 ISG Provider Lens ™ Multi Public Cloud Services Study in the category “Hyperscale Infrastructure and Platform Services” for its impressive offerings. STACKIT’s key strengths according to ISG: a modern, flexible cloud environment, a high level of data protection and a sovereign cloud.
