Today Snowflake Computing announced that its data warehouse-as-a-service is immediately available on Microsoft Azure for preview. Up until today, Snowflake’s WaaS only ran on AWS. This expansion allows an entirely new set of customers to take advantage of the benefits of Snowflake’s cloud-built data warehouse.
Founded in 2012 by Benoit Dageville, Thierry Cruanes, and Marcin Zukowski, Snowflake Computing has had quite a surprising and tremendous rise. The company has a cloud-based data storage and analytics service that does not relay on Hadoop.
