Snowflake hits Azure

By

The Snowflake data warehouse is now generally available on Azure.

As foreshadowed by its July preview, Snowflake Computing's data warehouse as a service is now available to all customers.

Snowflake integrates with Azure Blob Storage, Azure Data Lake Store, PowerBI and other Azure services, and is initially available in the Azure East-US-2 region. Other regions will be added "in the months and years ahead." 

Snowflake chief executive Bob Muglia previously told iTWire that one or more of Azure's European regions will be first on the list outside the US, and that availability in an Australian region won't happen this year.

"The demand for a cloud-built data warehouse continues to grow as more companies move their data and analytics workloads to the cloud,” Muglia said. 

“Microsoft customers and multi-vendor cloud users prompted us to offer Snowflake on Azure. We’re a customer-centric company and offering Snowflake on Azure is about delivering customer choice. We look forward to serving these customers.”

Microsoft welcomed the news.

Corporate vice-president for Azure compute, Corey Sanders, said "Having worked closely with Snowflake to create an outstanding user experience on Azure, I am really excited about this announcement.

"Through this collaboration, both Snowflake and Azure customers will benefit from Snowflake's performance, concurrency and flexibility along with Azure's hybrid, intelligent and trusted cloud capabilities."
