Boy are things going bananas at Snowflake these days. The really big news a few weeks back was another round of funding! This time we got another $450 million.
We are gaining marketshare everyday with name brands signing up in droves. I am constantly taken aback by the names I see on our win-wire. In my role as evangelist, I am getting to speak with folks at places like Sony, NBC Universal, Nike, and CapitalOne to name a few. Not only here in the US but over in EMEA as well (as my frequent flyer status will attest). And early next year I will be heading out to Australia and New Zealand too (stay tuned for details).
As exciting as all that is (#ILoveMyJob), even more exciting is how our engineering team is putting all that funding $$ to use to continue to improve what is already the leading cloud-built data warehouse. This week we announced two new major features.
From today, two new automation and performance capabilities are available in Snowflake. They are the latest advancements to Snowflake’s ability to deliver the best performance and scalability without requiring administration or maintenance from our customers. They also lay the foundation for a series of new features to come in the months ahead.
