CUSTOMER SUCCESS STORY: Stackable Data Platform for The Global Biodiversity Information Facility

Global biodiversity data at GBIF

Background: GBIF – the Global Biodiversity Information Facility – is is an international network that promotes free and open access to biodiversity data from around the world. GBIF collects, shares, and standardizes biodiversity data, enabling scientists, researchers, and policymakers to better understand and manage global biodiversity.

Challenge: GBIF faced the challenge of managing vast amounts of biodiversity data contributed by various institutions and researchers. They needed a solution that could effectively handle diverse data formats, ensure data quality, and provide seamless data access and sharing while adhering to FAIR principles.

Solution: GBIF selected the open-source Stackable Data Platform to migrate from a commercial data management product. The solution is designed to support FAIR data principles and provide advanced data management capabilities. The platform’s modular architecture allowed GBIF to customize and configure components to meet their specific needs.


a digital maritime data space

Marispace-X aims to create a digital maritime data space based on the data sovereignty, security, interoperability and modularity of Gaia-X. Marispace-X offers new ways in maritime Big Data processing and sensor data analysis via edge, fog and cloud computing. FAIR and open datasets are a cornerstone for comprehensive and integrated data analysis especially for these use cases:

  • Technologies and sensors for the Internet of Underwater Things
  • Data-driven management of offshore wind parks
  • Data analytics and management for ammunition in the sea
  • Assess CO2 saving potential for biological climate protection
