DSA

The current legislation has been in place for 20 years, but now the European Commission has two renewed legislative initiatives to improve digital services within the EU. The Digital Services Act (DSA) and the Digital Markets Act (DMA). It didn’t just happen overnight; they presented the proposals in December 2020, and the political agreement followed on 25 March 2022 (DMA) and 23 April 2022 (DSA). The European Commission called it ‘an ambitious reform of the digital space, a comprehensive set of new rules for all digital services, including social media and other online platforms operating in the EU’.

Name: Bram Jobtitle: Python Developer/Backend Developer Employed at Fuga since March 1, 2022 What is your background (education, interests, experience, etc.)? I am very broadly interested. I like sports, currently in the form of mountain biking. Gaming also remains a fun activity, in which I also vary a lot in what I play. I also like to be creative, you can think of Photoshop, Illustrator, and After Effects. But I also love to draw on paper, make models from cardboard and tinker with wood.

CloudFest 2022

On Sunday evening, March 20, 2022, we can be found with the entire team at the test location in the Netherlands. We have packed our bags, loaded the cars with our stand and materials, and reserved seats for the train. For some of us, it will be the first visit to CloudFest others have been there before. The previous editions of CloudFest brought the global cloud computing industry together but it looks like the 2022 edition will be more European oriented, given the (Covid) circumstances.

Is GAIA-X still alive?

The GAIA-X project started at the end of 2020. A collaboration of European companies and organizations to counterbalance the hegemony of the heavyweights in the Cloud, such as Google Cloud, AWS, Azure and Alibaba Cloud. After all, the US Cloud Act is not offering nearly as much data sovereignty as what is contained within the GDPR. And yet, the Americans control about 70% of the market. At the end of November 2021, one of the first proponents of the project, Scaleway (cloud branch of the French operator Iliad), withdrew from the project.

5 reasons to choose Fuga Cloud

1. Meet all the requirements of the GDPR The Dutch requirements for secure data storage are very strict. And for many standards and certificates, you have to meet these requirements. The fact that Microsoft or Google are building data centers in the Netherlands does not mean that they instantly comply with the GDPR. They fall out of it. The rules apply to the location of the mother company and not to the physical location of the servers.

When did you start at the Cyso Group? I have been working at Cyso Group for 6.5 years. I started as a web designer/marketer at Cyso in the Internet Editorial department. Here we developed and maintained all communication activities of Cyso. Not much later we developed the first portal of an OpenStack project within Cyso. This eventually became Fuga Cloud. The marketing department has also taken the first steps in realizing a shared hosting company, called SQR.

Companies have embraced wholeheartedly tools and have started managing projects online, meeting online and sharing or storing files online.

Meet Release 2, Fuga’s new cloud platform

In September 2015, the birth of Fuga Cloud Platform became a fact. A public cloud developed by Cyso, one of the last independent hosting providers in the Netherlands. We have used our knowledge and expertise, which we have acquired in the field of cloud in the past 20 years, for the development of Fuga Cloud. Last September we celebrated the three-year anniversary of Fuga Cloud. In these three years, tens of thousands of instances have been launched and we are proud of that.

In the last two years, we worked hard with a dedicated team of DevOps engineers, developers and cloud specialists to develop the next major release of the Fuga Cloud Platform. We are finally able to proudly announce the newest release of Fuga Cloud. Our first release (launched in 2015) has proven to be a rock-solid cloud solution with OpenStack at its core. We encountered enough challenges and improvements to develop an entirely new platform, of course, with OpenStack at its core.
