Snowflake started with a clear vision: develop a cloud data platform that is effective, affordable, and accessible to all data users. Snowflake developed an innovative new product with a built-for-the-cloud architecture that combines the power of data warehousing, the flexibility of big data platforms, and the elasticity of the cloud at a fraction of the cost of traditional solutions.

It is critical that our customers are able to manage access to their data, audit its usage and ensure its safety.  The security infrastructure also enables customers of Snowflake to share data and protect privacy which is a key ingredient of the Data Sharehouse.
