No, Snowflake’s stages are specifically designed to work with the cloud storage platforms that Snowflake natively supports. As of my knowledge cutoff date in September 2021, Snowflake natively supports cloud storage platforms such as Amazon S3, Microsoft Azure Blob Storage, and Google Cloud Storage.
You cannot directly use a Snowflake stage to load data from a cloud storage platform that is not natively supported by Snowflake. The external stages in Snowflake are tightly integrated with these supported cloud storage platforms, and Snowflake manages the communication and data movement between the stage and the storage service.
If you need to load data from a cloud storage platform that is not supported by Snowflake, you would typically need to perform an intermediate step of transferring the data to a supported cloud storage platform (such as S3, Azure Blob Storage, or Google Cloud Storage) and then use a Snowflake stage to load the data from there.
It’s important to check the latest Snowflake documentation or resources for any updates or changes beyond my knowledge cutoff date, as Snowflake’s capabilities and integrations may evolve over time.
