How Snowflake’s Founders Architected the Rise of the #DataCloud

On the heels of a very successful #DataCloud Summit, I am pleased to let you all know that Snowflake CEO Frank Slootman is publishing a book that really illuminates the Data Cloud and how we got here.

According to Gartner, the public cloud services market continues to grow, largely due to the data demands of modern applications and workloads. And data is one of the leading factors in this transition. In recent years, organizations have struggled with processing big data, sets of data large enough to overwhelm commercially available computing systems.

For a long time, the only real solution was data warehousing services. These services relied on specialized computer hardware to increase the scale of data processing. But these systems had major drawbacks in terms of their extremely high cost and performance constraints. Increasing scale this way wasn’t feasible for many or even most companies. With demand continuing to explode, the world desperately needed a more democratic solution for big data delivery.

A new book, The Rise of the Data Cloud, looks at how that problem can be solved over a few short years. As the founders of Snowflake came together to design a better big data solution, they built an entirely new class of cloud computing in the process.
