LAS VEGAS and BOZEMAN, Mont. — Dell Technologies and the cloud data platform Snowflake are working together.

Dell and Snowflake are collaborating to connect data from Dell’s storage hardware portfolio with the Snowflake Data Cloud, according to the companies this month. 

The collaboration is intended to help customers have greater flexibility operating in multicloud environments, meet data sovereignty requirements, and turn data into insights.

Dell and Snowflake customers will be able to use on-premises data stored on Dell object storage with the Snowflake Data Cloud, while keeping their data local or copying it to public clouds. 

The companies plan to “pursue” product integrations and joint go-to-market efforts in the second half of 2022.

Dell aims to provide customers with the tools to “derive insights from their data wherever it resides,” said Jeff Boudreau, president, Dell Technologies Infrastructure Solutions Group. 

Boudreau said the collaboration will expand Dell’s “SaaS provider ecosystem for data insights on-premises and in public clouds.”

Snowflake’s mission is to “mobilize the world’s data by empowering organizations to eliminate silos and bring data together to unlock more value and deeper insights,” said Christian Kleinerman, SVP of product, Snowflake.

“This collaboration with Dell will allow organizations to gain more value from their on-premises data,” Kleinerman said.
