What is Data Storage?
Data storage is the fundamental process of archiving data, ensuring its availability for ongoing access or eventual use by a computer, device, or application. In recent years, cloud-based storage with SaaS access has become a highly flexible, scalable, and cost-effective alternative to traditional on-premise hard storage or offsite managed options such as DWaaS.
Snowflake and Managed Data Storage
Snowflake’s storage layer, using scalable Cloud blob storage, hosts data, tables, and query results, is designed to scale independently from compute resources. With storage and warehouse not tightly coupled, customers can increase and reduce storage and analytics requirements in complete independence.
