Common Use Cases

  • A data provider uses Bobsled to share a data product stored in GCP to a customer as a shared “view” in Snowflake.

  • A SaaS application uses Bobsled to share application data stored in AWS S3 into a customer’s Azure blob storage for analysis.

  • A data team uses Bobsled to share weekly sales data stored in Azure to a partners’ AWS S3 bucket.

Key Features

  • Cloudless Provisioning. Share ready-to-query data to a team in another platform without managing infrastructure in the destination.

  • Credential-Free Sharing. Bobsled builds on the native sharing protocols built by each platform to allow teams to share data without ever exchanging private credentials.

  • Single Pane of Glass. See status and usage statistics on your shares from a single interface. Make sure all transfers are complete and see whether customers are actually accessing the information.
