Abilis Corp Executive Vice President Pat Dionne attended the 2019 Snowflake Summit earlier this week and came back with some exciting news for Snowflake users and for clients who are considering Snowflake’s data warehousing capabilities.
Perhaps most importantly, Snowflake announced its future deployment to the Google Cloud Platform by end of 2019, becoming the only cloud data warehousing provider to work with all three major cloud providers. In addition to adding increased flexibility to clients, the move will extend cross-cloud redundancy options for best business continuity.
Snowflake also shed light on efforts to better support streaming use cases through upgrades to the Snowflake Data Pipeline, adding a Kafka connector for near real-time data ingestions, improving auto-ingest functionalities, and implementing a Streams and Tasks scheduling feature for Snowflake SQL jobs.
This is an exciting time to be in Business Intelligence and Data Architecture, and we are proud to partner with companies that are committed to staying on the cutting edge of analytics, data processing and warehousing technology.
