THE CLOUD DATA PLATFORM FOR MODERN DATA LAKES
Organizations that deploy and manage complex computing environments contend with slow performance, lack of data governance, and the headache of maintaining incomplete data security. These are the struggles organizations face today when using generic cloud storage environments or Hadoop-based solutions as their data lakes. The result is significant overhead to manage these systems, the inability to get all the insight from all your data, and the increased possibility of putting your data at risk.
Snowflake’s cloud data platform combines the power of data warehousing, the flexibility of data lakes and the near-infinite resources of the cloud. You can choose to land your data in Snowflake as your central repository and experience the highest level of performance, relational querying, security, and governance. Or, you can land your data in cloud storage from Amazon S3, Azure Data Lake Storage, or Google Cloud Storage and use Snowflake to accelerate data transformations and analytics in your existing data lake.
