Powerful and reliable pipelines with the ease and performance of Snowflake.


Data Engineering for Performance, Simplicity and Reliability

Easily ingest, transform, and deliver your data for faster, deeper insights. With Snowflake, data engineers can spend little to no time managing infrastructure, avoid capacity planning and concurrency handling, and focus on building reliable, enterprise-ready data pipelines.

Why Snowflake

for Data Engineering

All Data at Speed With An Open Ecosystem

Collaborate in the Data Cloud with access to an open data ecosystem with streaming, batch, structured, and unstructured data, all in a single platform.

Performance and Reliability at Scale

Run enterprise-ready data pipelines with near-instant scalability and virtually no resource contention, powered by the elastic performance engine.

Radically Simple Data Pipelines

Simplify and eliminate unnecessary pipelines with intelligent infrastructure, pipeline automation, and data programmability.





Batch and Streaming Data Pipelines with an Open Data Ecosystem

Modern data-driven applications can’t wait for data. Snowflake handles both batch and continuous data ingestion of structured, semi-structured, and unstructured data.

  • Access ready-to-query data in the Data Cloud.
  • Get native support for semi-structured and unstructured data in a single platform.
  • Ingest data in a serverless manner with Snowpipe and Snowpipe Streaming (in private preview) for real-time data pipelines.
  • Simplify change data capture (CDC) with Snowflake’s Streams and Tasks.
  • Simply load data and run with auto-schema detection and instant data availability.

Performance at Scale with Tailored Transformation Needs

Traditional solutions require dedicated time windows for executing pipelines. On the flip side, Snowflake is uniquely architectured to provide multi-clustered computing, with resource isolation for each workload, in a secure and governed platform.

  • Maintain performance across a near-infinite number of concurrent workloads thanks to Snowflake’s multi-cluster shared data architecture.
  • Process with Snowflake’s elastic performance engine for data transformation workloads. 
  • Only pay for what you use by optimizing pipeline performance and price, with instant resizing of dedicated compute clusters.
  • Scale a near-infinite amount of computing resources, up or down, with just a few clicks.
  • Gain trust with Snowflake's consistent and strong governance and security protocols.

Simplified Data Transformation and Architecture

Streamline pipeline development and management with Snowflake, with less time spent on managing infrastructure, and no more unnecessary data pipelines.

  • Collaborate and bring users together with different coding preferences thanks to Snowflake’s developer framework, Snowpark, and our native support for ANSI SQL.
  • Build with Python, Scala, and Java; expand more functions; and execute faster in Snowflake with no additional processing systems needed.
  • Build resilient data pipelines with Schema-on-Read and without the need to define schema in advance.
  • Enable your other workloads with Snowflake: data warehouse, data lake, unistore, collaboration, cybersecurity, data science & ML, and applications.
  • Easily and securely share and consume live, governed data in real time.
  • Automate data pipelines with serverless features.


Use Python, Java, or Scala, with familiar DataFrames and custom function support to build powerful and efficient pipelines, machine learning (ML) workflows, and applications.  And gain the performance, ease of use, governance, and security that comes from working inside Snowflake's Data Cloud.
