We can now run an entire set of monthly reports, what used to take 2–3 days, in just 45 minutes. A single, month-end report that took 20–22 hours now takes 4 minutes.

Snowflake is built for speed, even with the most intense workloads. Its patented architecture separates compute from storage so you can scale up and down on the fly, without delay or disruption. You get the performance you need exactly when you need it.
Snowflake is a fully columnar database with vectorized execution, making it capable of addressing even the most demanding analytic workloads.
Snowflake’s adaptive optimization ensures queries automatically get the best performance possible – no indexes, distribution keys or tuning parameters to manage.
Snowflake can support unlimited concurrency with its unique multi-cluster, shared data architecture. This allows multiple compute clusters to operate simultaneously on the same data without degrading performance.
Snowflake can even scale automatically to handle varying concurrency demands with its multi-cluster virtual warehouse feature, transparently adding compute resources during peak load periods and scaling down when loads subside.

With Snowflake, you can concentrate on solving business problems rather than managing your data warehouse. Snowflake is a zero-management data warehouse-as-a-service.
Snowflake’s automated tuning eliminates the manual work required by other cloud and on-premise solutions. There’s no software or hardware to deploy and configure, and Snowflake automatically scales to support any amount of data and concurrency with consistently great performance.
Hear Celtra explain how Snowflake simplified its data environment, supporting fast, easy access for their analysts and customers.
Snowflake has rid Chime of the restriction of a rigid data modeling world, allowing for a much faster pace of business and far greater efficiencies for our small technology team.

Built for the Cloud
Snowflake is built for the cloud from the ground up. It delivers the flexibility and efficiency that simply isn’t possible with a traditional data warehouse or big data platform that has been shifted to the cloud. Learn about our patented approach in our architecture video.
