The ‘Most Exciting’ Things About The New Dell And Snowflake Collaboration.
“This collaboration between Dell and Snowflake is going to bring our two wonderful platforms together,” said Snowflake’s Patterson. “I think what’s most exciting about this is this the first time we’re bringing on-premise datasets to the Snowflake data cloud. So now, users of our respective platforms are going to be able to bring all their data, regardless of whether it sits in the cloud, or on premises, get the benefits of analytics through Snowflake, and be able to connect and share that with their customers and suppliers.”
“For the data that we want to retain on premise, for whatever reason; security, privacy, whatever reason we choose, we now have access to Snowflake analytics without having to move our data. We’re using a native set of capabilities in Snowflake called external stages, and external tables that allows us to expose data in object storage platforms like Dell to make it look like that data is native to Snowflake, so you can just get right at it and not have to worry about any complexity.”
