Read about Snowflake's comprehensive approach to protecting data and access to data.

Snowflake’s mission is to enable every organization to be data-driven. Our cloud-built data platform makes that possible by delivering instant elasticity, secure data sharing and per-second pricing, across multiple clouds. Snowflake combines the power of data warehousing, the flexibility of big data platforms and the elasticity of the cloud at a fraction of the cost of traditional solutions.

Conventional data platforms and big data solutions struggle to deliver on their fundamental purpose: to enable any user to work with any data, without limits on scale, performance or flexibility. Whether you’re a data analyst, data scientist, data engineer, or any other business or technology professional, you’ll get more from your data with Snowflake.

What Makes Snowflake Unique:

  • A Multi-Cluster Shared Data Architecture Across Any Cloud: Easily scale up and down any amount of computing power for any number of workloads or users and across any combination of clouds, while accessing the same, single copy of your data but only paying for the resources you use thanks to Snowflake’s per-second pricing.
  • Secure Data Sharing and Collaboration: Eliminate the cost and headache of static data sharing methods by easily sharing any amount of live structured and semi-structured data, without having to move data, whether it be across your enterprise, with customers and business partners, or to monetize your data.
  • One, Near-Zero Maintenance Platform Delivered as a Service: Choose any combination of infrastructure providers, enable your workloads where you want, rely on Snowflake to manage the data platform, and deploy across and between different clouds and regions to support business efficiencies and data sovereignty.

A Modern Data Platform Built For Any Cloud.
