By now you surely know that you can build a Data Vault on Snowflake. In fact we have many customers doing so today. So much so that we formed a Snowflake Data Vault User Group.
Over the years I have had hundreds of calls and meetings with organizations around the world discussing this topic from just basic Data Vault 101 type questions to best practices to who is doing Data Vault on Snowflake. Because of that we developed a Data Vault Resource Kit that points you to all the key blog posts, videos, and customer stories on the topic (scroll down to see everything!). Be sure to bookmark that page. Most of your questions on this topic can be answered there.
To take it a step further and to a deeper level, I partnered up with Snowflake Field CTO Dmytro Yarashneko (CDVP2) and wrote a post with reference architectures and discussions related to doing real time feeds into a Data Vault 2.0 on Snowflake. Check that out here. This article even has code!
And, at long last, for those that want to jump in feet first and try it for yourself, the team built a Data Vault Quickstart , based on the above article and a hands on lab from WWDVC 2021, that gives you a step-by-step guide and all the code to build and load a Data Vault 2.0 system, including an information mart on top of the Data Vault, all in your very own Snowflake account.
So, what is your excuse now? You have all the resources you need to give it a go!
