What is the Data Cloud?

Frank Bell Answered question September 11, 2021

The Data Cloud or the Snowflake Data Cloud is an overall Data Platform for analytical data workloads. Currently Snowflake is positioning their overall Data Cloud to handle 6 workloads:

  • Data Warehousing
  • Data Engineering
  • Data Lake
  • Data Science
  • Data Applications
  • Data Exchange

I wrote a more in depth article on the what I think the Snowflake Data Cloud is:
Snowflake now also has the overall Snowgrid which is the overall connected Data Mesh of all of Snowflake’s accounts across all cloud providers and regions. Snowflake has achieved this through replication features across clouds.
