Snowflake Computing Offers Data Sharehouse™

Snowflake Computing offers a cloud-based data warehouse. They’ve just announced a “Data Sharehouse™”, which is an awesome name if nothing else. But the product sounds interesting too: it makes it easy to share data with outside organizations or – sometimes even harder – between departments or divisions of the same organization. Key features include real-time access without data movement, tight control over data distribution, and both structured and semi-structured data storage.
