Snowflake Data Sharing is the most streamlined way to share data with your customers. Other methods for sharing data -like EDI, FTP, or even e-mail- require data deconstruction, file transmission, copying, reconstruction, and duplicative storage. Even cloud file services fundamentally require the copying and sending of files, an inherently manual, static and time consuming process.
With Snowflake’s innovative cloud architecture, the world of sharing data is vastly simplified. Fundamentally, any Snowflake customer who wants to share data with someone else (a data provider) can share secure, live access to their data with one -or many- other organizations. Rather than physically transferring the data to the consumer, the data remains in the provider’s account and is visible and accessible to the consumer through SQL.
