Fast Data Loader FAQ

Overview

What is SnapLogic Fast Data Loader?

The SnapLogic Fast Data Loader is a new offering from SnapLogic that enables IT and business users to load data to cloud data warehouses (CDW) WITHOUT writing any code or building any pipelines.

How does it differ from SnapLogic’s core offering?

The SnapLogic Fast Data Loader further simplifies the process of moving data to your CDW. Unlike SnapLogic’s core platform, you don’t even have to build pipelines. You can just pick a source from a list of available endpoints and the target CDW. You can then pick the data you want to load and the Fast Data Loader will do the rest.

How do I sign up for it?

Please fill out the form here to sign up for the Fast Data Loader.

Additional note for existing SnapLogic customers:

  • If your organization uses SSO, you will be sent an email telling you to sign up for the Fast Data Loader with a different email address.
  • If your organization does not use SSO, after signing up for the Fast Data Loader, you would need to log into the SnapLogic platform with your credentials, then go to the Fast Data Loader URL.

How much does it cost?

The SnapLogic Fast Data Loader is FREE for loading up to 1 million rows of data per month. When you go over a million rows in a month, we believe that you have found the Fast Data Loader highly useful. Someone from our sales team will contact you to upgrade to a paid version of the Fast Data Loader so that you can get the data you need FAST into a cloud data warehouse of your choice.
