Snowflake IPO shows strength of cloud data warehouse

Snowflake’s move to go public shows the strong demand for its cloud data warehouse technology.

The cloud data warehouse vendor, based in San Mateo, Calif., officially filed its S-1 initial public offering (IPO) with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission on Aug. 24.

Snowflake had already confidentially filed for an IPO in June under a federal law that allows smaller companies to informally file to go public while testing the market.

Snowflake was founded in 2012 and has raised $1.4 billion in funding to date as a private company. Its most recent funding round, in February, raised $479 million and valued the company at $12.4 billion.

The S-1 IPO filing document provides insight into Snowflake’s business, reporting that in the second quarter of 2020 the company grew revenues by 121% year over year. Revenue growth is being driven in part by customer growth, with the company reporting that it had 3,117 customers as of July 31, more than double the 1,547 it had a year ago.

Reusable Chinese Spacecraft Lands Successfully, State Media Reports

An experimental reusable spacecraft launched into orbit two days ago by China has successfully returned to a designated site on Sunday, marking a breakthrough that could lead to cheaper round-trips to space, the official Xinhua News Agency reported.

The mission had been kept low-key, and state media had yet to publish photographs or video footage of both the launch and landing of the spacecraft. No details were given on the technologies that had been tested.

Chinese social media has been rife with speculation over the spacecraft, which some commentators compared to the US Air Force’s X-37B, an autonomous spaceplane made by Boeing that can remain in orbit for long periods of time before flying back to Earth on its own.

Three years ago, China said it would launch a spacecraft in 2020 that can fly like an aircraft and would be reusable, increasing the frequency of launches and lowering mission costs.

It is not known if the experimental spacecraft launched by China was a fixed-wing craft like the US Space Shuttle. If it was similar to the X-37B, it would be about a fifth of the Space Shuttle in size.

The Chinese spacecraft was deployed into orbit on Friday
