Optimizing Price for Performance
with the Snowflake Performance Index
The Snowflake Performance Index (SPI) is an aggregate index for measuring improvements in Snowflake performance experienced by customers over time. The SPI is calculated based on a comparable cohort of stable customer workloads consisting of millions of jobs each month.
Query Duration for Customers' Recurring Workloads Improves by 7% Over the Last 6 Months Ending April 30, 2023 and by 15% Since We Started Tracking Metric¹
Cost & Performance
Snowflake optimizes cost and performance for customers by both minimizing TCO and continuously improving price for performance.
¹Based on internal Snowflake data from August 25, 2022 to April 30, 2023. To calculate SPI, we identify a group of customer workloads that are stable and comparable in both amount of queries and data processed over the period presented. Reduction in query duration resulted from a combination of factors, including hardware and software improvements and customer optimizations.
