Snowflake’s Secure Data Sharing

Snowflake’s Secure Data Sharing is transformative to the world of data. What other platform, environment, or vendor can touch this? The World Is Going to Run On Snowflake!

Snowflake secure data sharing

Gone are the days of old-school legacy slow, expensive, cumbersome, repetitive, and limiting transferring data. Snowflake enables the sharing of databases through shares, which are created by data providers and “imported” by data consumers.

With Secure Data Sharing, no actual data is copied or transferred between accounts. All sharing is accomplished through Snowflake’s unique services layer and metadata store. Because no data is copied or exchanged, Secure Data Sharing setup is quick and easy for providers and access to the shared data is instantaneous for consumers.

Through this architecture, Snowflake enables creating a network of providers that can share data with multiple consumers (including within their own organization) and consumers that can access shared data from multiple providers.
