Connect to Snowflake from Azure vs AWS

What are the differences to consider when connecting to Snowflake running on AWS versus Azure? Because of the new enhanced connector, if I'm correct: now you DON'T need a gateway to connect from the Power BI Service to AWS, and that the gateway would need to be installed on a VM in AWS that would need to be able to connect outwards to the Power BI Service.

 

What could then be a disadvantage when choosing for AWS instead of Azure, in terms of performance and costs?

 

Thank you!

Hi @mmossel ,

For datasets that include separate queries one that connects to an on-premises data source and the other to a cloud data source, the gateway doesn't execute the query for the cloud data source. If datasets have cloud and on-premises data sources merged or appended in a single query, the web data sources also need to be added into the gateway.
