Snowflake, Inc. provides a cloud data platform, which leverages the public cloud and enables customers to consolidate data into a single source of truth to drive business insights, build data-driven applications, and share data. The platform enables customers to unify and query data to support a wide variety of use cases. The platform also provides frictionless and governed data access so users can securely share data inside and outside of their organizations, generally without copying or moving the underlying data. Delivered as a service, the Snowflake platform requires near-zero maintenance, enabling customers to focus on deriving value from their data rather than managing infrastructure. Founded in 2012 the company is based in San Mateo, California.
