The flagship project for secure networking of data centers in Europe
Today, large data centers are the most important hubs of the Internet. They have a huge computing power and are located far away from the customer. This leads to low flexibility, high traffic in the network, long delays and security concerns. The consequences are that more convergence of telecommunication networks and IT is needed and that data centers are more distributed and are located closer to the customers. The strategic goal of the 3 year CELTIC-NEXT project SENDATE is to pave the way to this new network topology through de-localized and securely connected date centers. Therefore, the SENDATE project is seen as the European answer for a secure, flexible and efficient control of data flows in the Internet.

SENDATE, Secure Networking for a Data Centre Cloud in Europe, is a 70 million euro public-private partnership project comprising 83 companies, research organizations, and universities from Germany, France, Finland, and Sweden. The project runs from April 2016 to May 2019 under CELTIC-NEXT, the EUREKA Cluster for a Smart Connected World, and is partly publicly funded by the research ministries/ agencies BMBF (Germany), DGE (France), TEKES (Finland), and VINNOVA (Sweden).
