Database Replication and Failover/Failback

These topics provide concepts and detailed instructions for replicating and syncing databases across multiple Snowflake accounts in different regions and even on different cloud platforms.

In addition, If you are using Business Critical Edition (or higher), these topics provide detailed instructions for configuring database failover across multiple accounts in different regions to enable continued access to your data in the event of a service outage in a region.

Note

Currently, Database Replication and Failover/Failback is not available for Snowflake accounts hosted on Google Cloud Platform.

Important

If you are replicating a database to a geographic region or country that is different from the region/country in which your source Snowflake account is located, you should confirm that your organization does not have any legal or regulatory restrictions as to where your data can be transferred or hosted.
