Pure Storage And Snowflake To Deliver Increased Data Accessibility


The joint solution will combine the agility of FlashBlade’s Object Store with the Snowflake Data Cloud to give customers greater control of their data, in-cloud or on-premises

Pure Storage and Snowflake announced a partnership to develop a solution that increases data accessibility for global customers with on-premises data. Pure Storage FlashBlade is a dynamic, high performance unified file and object platform purpose-built for modern analytics, offering real-time response for data with cloud-like agility.

Once available, Pure and Snowflake customers will be able to analyse multiple data sources stored on Pure Storage FlashBlade with the Snowflake Data Cloud while keeping their data local. This will enable enterprises to work with data directly stored on FlashBlade object storage using Snowflake in the cloud, eliminating the need to create separate copies of data shared with other tools or workflows.

“Our collaboration with Snowflake to increase data accessibility allows us to truly meet customers where they are in their journey to the cloud, driving every organisation to become a data-driven business to reach faster outcomes. Pure continues to strengthen its leadership in delivering advanced data storage technology and services across the industry. Our joint solution with Snowflake reaffirms our commitment to simplifying how organisations interact with data to extract the most value and drive meaningful business outcomes,” said Rob Lee, Chief Technology Officer, Pure Storage.

Christian Kleinerman, Senior Vice President of Product, Snowflake said “Snowflake and Pure Storage’s partnership will allow organisations to gain more value from their on-premises data while leveraging Snowflake’s analytical and governance capabilities. Our joint solution will help organisations mobilise the world’s data by eliminating silos, further bringing data together to unlock more value and deeper insights for customers.”

This solution is expected to go into public preview by the second half of 2022.
