Las Vegas, USA: Dell Technologies and Snowflake – a cloud-based data warehousing company have joined hands to simplify data access and gain insights for customers.
Dell said on Monday that the two companies will work together to connect data from its enterprise storage portfolio with the Snowflake Data Cloud.
This unique collaboration will help common customers of two companies to have greater flexibility operating in multi-cloud environments, meet data sovereignty requirements, and turn data into insights. Under this announced collaboration both companies will jointly work toward product integration and go-to-market initiatives in the second half of 2022.
Post the product integration, Dell Technologies 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 seamlessly copying it to public clouds.
“As the industry leader in data storage, Dell Technologies provides customers with the tools needed to derive insights from their data wherever it resides,” said Jeff Boudreau, President of Dell Technologies Infrastructure Solutions Group.
“With the industry’s first collaboration between on-premises storage systems and the Snowflake Data Cloud, we are able to expand Dell’s SaaS provider ecosystem for data insights on-premises and in public clouds,” added Boudreau.
While both, on-premise and cloud solutions efficiently manage separate sets of workloads, there exists a need to eliminate silos by adopting seamless and integrated hybrid models.
“With this collaboration, we will be providing enterprises with the power to store and copy their data to the cloud while keeping it local”, said Srinivas Rao, Senior Director – System Engineering, Dell Technologies India.
“Snowflake’s mission is to mobilize the world’s data by empowering organisations to eliminate silos and bring data together to unlock more value and deeper insights,” said Christian Kleinerman, SVP – Product, Snowflake.
“This collaboration with Dell will allow organizations to gain more value from their on-premises data while leveraging the performance and simplicity of Snowflake’s platform and the powerful collaboration capabilities of the Snowflake Data Cloud,” added Kleinerman.
