Configure Snowflake

  1. Log in to your trial Snowflake account. You can sign up for a Snowflake Trial Account using this form if you don’t have one.
  2. Ensure that your account is set up using AWS in the US East (N. Virginia). We will be copying the data from a public AWS S3 bucket hosted by dbt Labs in the us-east-1 region. By ensuring our Snowflake environment setup matches our bucket region, we avoid any multi-region data copy and retrieval latency issues.
