The boss of OVHcloud told Politico that the choice to let actors like Alibaba, Huawei or Microsoft sponsor the annual event of the European consortium was “ in bad taste ”.
Especially since these are actors who “ do not respect the rules and objectives ” of Gaia-X, he adds, calling for not to be naive and to move on. As a reminder, the project aims in particular to develop common tools such as the recently announced labels.
This release follows the departure of Scaleway in mid-November. On the side of OVHcloud we prefer “ not to leave the ship before the battle ” and hope that it is still possible to have a positive influence within this project.
