Pure Storage and Snowflake Partnering on Data Accessibility

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. and BOZEMAN, Mont. — The data cloud company Snowflake and the data storage company are working together.

Snowflake and Pure Storage entered a partnership to develop a solution that increases data accessibility for global customers with on-premises data, according to the companies last month.

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 analyze multiple data sources 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.

This solution will go into public preview by the second half of 2022.

“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 organization to become a data-driven business to reach faster outcomes,” said Rob Lee, CTO, Pure Storage. 

“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 organizations interact with data to extract the most value and drive meaningful business outcomes.”

The partnership will allow organizations to “gain more value from their on-premises data, while leveraging Snowflake’s analytical and governance capabilities,” said Christian Kleinerman, SVP of product, Snowflake. 

“Our joint solution will help organizations mobilize the world’s data by eliminating silos, further bringing data together to unlock more value and deeper insights for customers,” Kleinerman said.
