Big Data Cloud Provider Snowflake Opens Israeli Office
Snowflake, a bid data cloud provider from Bozeman, Montana, announced its entry into the Israeli market Monday, with the opening of a local office.
The company named Yaron Ben Schlusch, formerly an executive at Sisense, Jacada, Alvarion, Ericsson, and Motorola, as its country manager in Israel.
Snowflake employs more than 3,000 people globally, providing cloud-based data services to its thousands of worldwide customers, including in Israel. Its platform enables companies to maximize the value of their data by easily managing it, eliminating data silos and storing data in the cloud. The company was founded in 2012 by Benoit Dageville, Thierry Cruanes, and Marcin Żukowski and its current CEO is Frank Slootman.
“Snowflake regards Israel as an important expansion destination,” said Ben Schlusch. “The revolution championed by Snowflake has empowered many startups and organizations worldwide to tap into data and build applications on top of Snowflake’s platform. In Israel too, many local high-tech companies are running their data operations in the cloud, with many of them choosing the Snowflake solution as their main cloud data platform.”
Snowflake’s Data Cloud runs on all three major cloud platforms, AWS, Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform worldwide, and can accommodate massive, near-endless data repositories.
The company runs an extensive range of data workloads on a unified platform, including Data Warehouse, DataLake, Data Engineering, DataScience, Data Sharing, and Data Applications. By centralizing data in the cloud, Snowflake’s platform requires significantly fewer resources for managing the solution’s infrastructure and maintenance.
Snowflake recently announced the launch of its Media Data Cloud enables marketers, publishers and data and ad technology businesses to unlock their data for identity, insights, activation and measurement across the advertising ecosystem.
