H2O.ai Launches Generative AI Capabilities as Snowflake Native Apps on Snowflake Marketplace

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., June 6, 2024 — H2O.ai announced at Snowflake’s annual user conference, Snowflake Data Cloud Summit ‘24, that it has launched native H2O ML and Generative AI Apps in Snowflake Marketplace. H2O.ai’s Snowflake Native Apps provides seamless integrated workflows, natively within joint customers’ Snowflake accounts.

“This is a big step in making AI accessible to everyone,” said Sri Ambati, CEO and Founder of H2O.ai. “By embedding our Predictive and GenAI apps into Snowflake’s ecosystem, we’re helping organizations get powerful insights from large language models right within their Snowflake accounts. Now, Snowflake users can easily launch and securely use H2O.ai directly from the Snowflake Marketplace. It’s all about bringing AI power directly to the people.”

H2O.ai and Snowflake are working together to mobilize the world’s data with Snowflake’s Data Cloud, helping joint customers unlock the value of their data. Today, three H2O ML and GenAI Bundles are now available for Snowflake users: H2O Predictive Modeling Starter Pack, H2O GenAI LLM Starter Pack, and H2O Machine Learning Starter Pack.

Key features of H2O.ai’s native applications within Snowflake Marketplace include:

  • Seamless Integration: Users can leverage GenAI models directly within Snowflake Native Applications, eliminating the need for complex integrations or technical expertise.
  • Data Enrichment: GenAI applications enhance data by automatically generating new columns based on advanced calculations, enriching insights and driving informed decision-making.
  • Predictive AI: Combined with traditional predictive models, GenAI capabilities enable sophisticated question answering and content generation based on existing data stores.

“With the Snowflake Native App Framework and its new support for Snowpark Container Services, partners like H2O.ai can bring their complex applications directly to customers, running directly on their secure and governed data inside Snowflake,” said Chris Child, Senior Director, Product Management, Snowflake. “This means partners can deliver valuable capabilities like enriching data and deriving insights quickly, securely, and powerfully to customers in the Data Cloud.”

As a Snowflake Native Apps, H2O.ai enables customers to answer questions and derive insights based on data within their Snowflake account where their data already resides.

Using the combined capabilities of Snowflake Native App Framework and Snowpark Container Services (integration in private preview), developers can build sophisticated applications that run on a range of configurable hardware options, including GPUs, distribute and monetize them on Snowflake Marketplace, and deploy them within their customers’ Snowflake accounts, without requiring data movement.
