Snowflake Connector for Spark

The Snowflake Connector for Spark (“Spark connector”) brings Snowflake into the Apache Spark ecosystem, enabling Spark to read data from, and write data to, Snowflake. From Spark’s perspective, Snowflake looks similar to other Spark data sources (PostgreSQL, HDFS, S3, etc.).

Snowflake supports three versions of Spark: Spark 2.4, Spark 3.0, and Spark 3.1. There is a separate version of the Snowflake Connector fo Spark for each version of Spark. Use the correct version of the connector for your version of Spark.

The connector runs as a Spark plugin and is provided as a Spark package (spark-snowflake).
