Snowflake is an analytic data warehouse provided as Software-as-a-Service (SaaS). Snowflake provides a data warehouse that is faster, easier to use, and far more flexible than traditional data warehouse offerings.
Snowflake’s data warehouse is not built on an existing database or “big data” software platform such as Hadoop. The Snowflake data warehouse uses a new SQL database engine with a unique architecture designed for the cloud. To the user, Snowflake has many similarities to other enterprise data warehouses, but also has additional functionality and unique capabilities.
Why Snowflake is unique?
You can freely determine the available computing power for any number of users to get the desired performance. Snowflake Provides flexibility, effectively unlimited data size and any number of queries, handling of non-relational data types and security, based on the highest market standards.
- Per second billing
Compute usage is billed on a per-second basis, with a minimum of 60 seconds. Turn compute resources on and off, so you only pay for what you use. Store unlimited amounts of data at affordable cloud rates. Grow your analytics infrastructure with linear cost scalability
Security and governance tools ensure sensitive data maintained by an organization is protected from inappropriate access and tampering, as well as helping organizations to achieve and maintain regulatory compliance. These tools support a wide range of operations, including risk assessment, intrusion detection/monitoring/notification, data masking, data cataloging, and more.
Snowflake is provided as Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) that runs completely on cloud infrastructure. This means that all three layers of Snowflake’s architecture (storage, compute, and cloud services) are deployed and managed entirely on a selected cloud platform.
A Snowflake account can be hosted on any of the following cloud platforms:
