Snowflake can load data from the Google Cloud Platform (GCP), Microsoft Azure, and Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3) using external stages. Each cloud platform has one or more techniques for integrating with Snowflake. One method of integration that is supported across all three of the major cloud platforms is storage integration objects. Begin this course by loading data from Google Cloud Storage buckets. Create a Snowflake storage integration object and a GCP cloud storage service account for your Snowflake account. Then, load data from Azure Blob Storage using both the storage integration method and the SAS token method. Finally, integrate with Amazon S3 via storage integrations and using an access key and access key ID credentials. When you have completed this course, you will be able to easily integrate Snowflake with Google Cloud Storage, Azure Blob Storage, and Amazon S3.
