CData Connect Cloud, a powerful data connectivity, semantic layer, and data virtualization platform, is now natively accessible from within the Snowflake Data Cloud with just one click through Snowflake Partner Connect.

Snowflake users can now access CData Connect Cloud right from their Snowflake account and begin working with live Snowflake data using the applications and client tools they already use. Users can quickly create an account with a free trial of CData Connect Cloud and automatically configure a Snowflake connection to gain real-time bi-directional data integration from any cloud reporting, analytics, or business tool.

“CData is a proven and reliable Snowflake Data Connectivity Partner with easy-to-use drop-in real-time connectors,” said Calvin Brown, Snowflake Director of Global Alliances. “Now, with CData Connect Cloud on Snowflake Partner Connect, customers can start using their Snowflake data wherever they need it, with nothing to install and without ever needing to replicate, move, or store the data.” 

"As a Premier Snowflake Partner, we're committed to helping Snowflake customers have one-click access to a proven and intuitive cloud-based data integration service,” said Mike Albritton, CData SVP, Cloud. "We look forward to giving our joint customers around the world easier access to their Snowflake data in the tools and applications they love and use every day.”
