Snowflake Announces Data Sharing Rebate Program
novembre 2018 par Marc Jacob
Snowflake Computing announced a rebate program to reward customers who use Snowflake Data Sharing with their external “data consumers” by reducing their monthly costs and potentially driving their Snowflake expense to zero. Snowflake Data Sharing, aka the Data Sharehouse, allows customers to share any part of their data among their internal business units, with their ecosystem of partners and customers, and with other external data consumers.
Qualified customers who use Snowflake Data Sharing will automatically be eligible for the rebate program beginning December 1. Snowflake customers, who share data as “data providers” with external organizations (data consumers), will automatically receive a credit rebate equal to 10 percent of their data consumers’ usage when those consumers perform operations on a data provider’s shared data inside Snowflake’s data warehouse-as-a-service. Snowflake customers already get the most powerful, flexible and cost-effective data warehouse. Now they get additional savings, while securely sharing governed data in real time with qualified, third-party data consumers.
Snowflake Data Sharing is one of many innovations to support Snowflake’s mission of enabling every organization to be data-driven. Other Snowflake innovations include instant elasticity, per-second pricing and multi-cloud availability. Modern data sharing functionality, which is uniquely available on Snowflake, allows organizations of any size to participate in the Data Economy via a data-sharing network enabled by Snowflake.
