Snowflake’s fully managed platform provides automatic provisioning, availability, tuning, data protection and more—across clouds and regions—for an unlimited number of users and jobs.
Snowflake’s elasticity enables you to rightsize compute resources to respond to workload fluctuations within seconds—without resource contention or performance degradation. Combined with consumption-based pricing, this helps avoid over-provisioning.
In addition to ongoing performance improvements, the platform also offers native optimizations that help make costs more efficient, transparent and predictable.
To ensure your data stays secure as it’s queried and shared globally, Snowflake combines powerful security controls—which provide identity and access management across CSPs, networking and encryption—with a unified governance model that enforces policies, tags and lineage.
Snowflake fuels a full spectrum of use cases with the same copy of data—all on a data warehouse that feels familiar yet robust. Visualize insights with BI and reporting, process location data with geospatial analytics, or forecast time-series data with ML-based Snowflake Cortex functions (anomaly detection and forecasting in GA soon).
Snowflake’s separation of storage and compute helps you easily share live data across business units, eliminating the need for data marts or maintaining multiple copies of data. You can also share data with partners and customers—regardless of region or cloud—whether or not they’re on Snowflake.
“We wanted to make the most people the most productive in the shortest amount of time, and Snowflake was the clear winner.”
