About Snowflake Marketplace¶
The Snowflake Marketplace is where you can explore, access, and provide listings to consumers.
About the Snowflake Marketplace¶
You can use the Snowflake Marketplace to discover and access third-party data and services, as well as market your own data products across the Snowflake Data Cloud.
As a data provider, you can use listings on the Snowflake Marketplace to share curated data offerings with many consumers simultaneously, rather than maintain sharing relationships with each individual consumer. With Paid Listings, you can also charge for your data products.
As a consumer, you might use the data provided on the Snowflake Marketplace to explore and access the following:
Historical data for research, forecasting, and machine learning.
Up-to-date streaming data, such as current weather and traffic conditions.
Specialized identity data for understanding subscribers and audience targets.
New insights from unexpected sources of data.
The Snowflake Marketplace is available globally to all non-VPS Snowflake accounts hosted on Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud Platform, and Microsoft Azure, with the exception of Microsoft Azure Government. Support for Microsoft Azure Government is planned.
If you are using private connectivity to access the Snowflake Marketplace through Snowsight, you must first create a CNAME record, as described in the Snowflake documentation:
