The only data warehouse built for the cloud
Snowflake’s mission is to enable every organization to be data-driven. This cloud-built data warehouse makes that possible by delivering instant elasticity, secure data sharing and per-second pricing, across multiple clouds. Snowflake combines the power of data warehousing, the flexibility of big data platforms and the elasticity of the cloud at a fraction of the cost of traditional solutions.
Snowflake is a fully-managed service with a pay-as-you-go-model that works on structured and semi-structured data. Its unique architecture delivers proven breakthroughs in performance, concurrency and simplicity. For the first time, multiple groups can access millions of gigabytes of data at the same time, up to 200 times faster and 10 times less expensive than solutions not built for the cloud.
Prior generations of data warehouses created the struggle for data which results in groups waiting in line to get at data; not looking at the same data; and, wondering if they’re acting on the most recent data. Snowflake’s data warehouse built for the cloud finally ends this struggle. With Snowflake, you get your data without limits.
Snowflake is easy to set up as there is no hardware (virtual or physical) for you to select, install, configure, or manage. All ongoing maintenance, management, and tuning is handled by Snowflake. Snowflake leverages standard SQL. This will be an advantage for organizations who are already making use of SQL ensuring that teams will not need to be “re-skilled”.
Complete SQL Data Warehouse
Snowflake is a fully relational ANSI SQL data warehouse, so you can leverage the skills and tools your organization already uses. Updates, deletes, analytical functions, transactions, stored procedures, materialized views and complex joins give you the full capabilities you need to make the most of your data.
Snowflake is a true data warehouse-as-a-service running in the cloud. With built-in performance, there’s no infrastructure to manage or knobs to turn. Snowflake automatically handles infrastructure, optimization, availability, data protection and more so you can focus on using your data, not managing it.
Snowflake’s patented technology natively loads and optimizes both structured and semi-structured data such as JSON, Avro, or XML and makes it available via SQL without sacrificing performance or flexibility.
Snowflake processes queries and tasks in a fraction of the time conventional on-premises and cloud data warehouses require. Combined with the capacity to scale up and down, automatically and on the fly, you get the exact performance you need, exactly when you need it.
Any Scale of Data, Workloads, and Users
Snowflake’s patented multi-cluster, shared data architecture separates storage and compute, making it possible to scale up and down on-the-fly without downtime or disruption. Automatically scale to support any amount of data, workloads and concurrent users and applications without requiring data movement, data marts or data copies.
Failover and Business Continuity
Replicate data across cloud regions, across cloud providers, keep data and apps where they are, operate confidently with failover and business continuity.
Pay Only for What You Use
Usage-based pricing for compute and storage means you only pay for the amount of data you store and the amount of compute processing you use. Say goodbye to upfront costs, over-provisioned systems or idle clusters consuming money.
Seamlessly Share Data Across your Organization and Beyond
Snowflake’s multi-tenant architecture extends the data warehouse to the Data Sharehouse, with governed and secure, modern data sharing in real time. Within minutes, and without ever having to move data, share any slice of your data across your organization or with any of your business partners and customers.
