An Integrated Data Solution: Astrato’s Partnerships
As challengers to the traditional Business Intelligence model, we at Astrato believe that an organization must stand out from the crowd to achieve success and make an impact. As such, we appreciate that a one-size-fits-all approach won’t work for every organization as each business is unique in its own right.
Unlike other competitors in the BI space, our technology delivers a comprehensive, cloud-native analytics platform that enables you to play your data where it lives. Also, Astrato doesn’t lock your visualizations into any proprietary vendor, which gives you the freedom to grow or evolve in line with your business needs.
At Astrato, we fully support some of the largest data clouds and data warehouses. In this article, we’ll cover how our partnerships and integrations work with some of the biggest names in data to bring you modern analytics.
Snowflake is a cloud-based data warehouse that uses a multi-cluster shared data architecture to unite your data silos. Much like Astrato, Snowflake is designed to be scalable, secure and easy to use.
As a trusted Snowflake Technology Partner, Astrato has complete integration with Snowflake. With Astrato, you can connect to your Snowflake database in just a few short steps. When you connect to Snowflake you’ll be able to add various functions to your data objects and reports.
Astrato’s partnership with Snowflake also allows you to take advantage of Snowpark, the powerful feature from Snowflake that combines the use of SQL and Python, Java, or Scala to create more complex data analysis. By utilizing Snowpark, you’ll be able to conduct forecasting, clustering, and even machine learning.

Google BigQuery is a serverless and fully managed, enterprise-level data warehouse that offers a unique, pricing structure that allows you to only pay for as much data as you use. With Google BigQuery, all customers get 10 GB storage and up to 1 TB of queries free per month. In addition, the platform is also capable of handling petabytes worth of data, making it a must-have solution for even the most demanding, data-hungry customers.
Google BigQuery integration is fully realized on Astrato with users being able to access and visualize their data directly from its source. As a result, BigQuery users are able to easily create quality real-time data insights with security and peace of mind.
In addition to supporting Snowflake and Google BigQuery, Astrato also provides support for PostgreSQL. Also known as Postgres, Astrato offers full integration with the free, open-source relational database management system.
Due to its ease of use, longevity and the open-source (free-to-use) nature of the PostgreSQL platform, the service is immensely popular with startups and businesses with their own in-house developers. As such, Astrato’s partnership with PostgreSQL makes it easier than ever before for businesses of all sizes to create enterprise-quality data visualizations on our analytics platform.
