Aladdin Data Cloud


Aladdin Data Cloud brings together Aladdin—the language of portfolios—with Snowflake's data platform. Aladdin Data Cloud powered by Snowflake gives clients the ability to unlock the power of their data, while retaining the same security and controls that are hallmarks of Aladdin.

What is Aladdin Data Cloud?

Aladdin Data Cloud is BlackRock’s managed data-as-a-service solution, powered by Snowflake’s data platform. It is an evolution of Aladdin Data Warehouse (ADW) that includes all the features of ADW in a new centralized, automated, and cloud-agnostic platform. Aladdin Data Cloud provides users with a single platform to host all of their data—from both inside and outside Aladdin—and the ability to harness that data efficiently for a myriad of uses. It is a premium add-on that is available in Aladdin Studio, a workshop for building on top of Aladdin, that provides all the tools you need to quickly build scalable solutions. Aladdin Data Cloud can be positioned side by side with your Aladdin in Azure, or in the commercial cloud of your choice.
