Snowflake provides a data warehouse built for the cloud, delivering a solution capable of solving problems for which legacy, on-premises and cloud data platforms were not designed.
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 for even the most intense workloads. Its patented architecture separates compute from storage so you can scale compute up and down, and on the fly, without delay or disruption. You get the performance you need exactly when you need it.
Snowflake is also a fully columnar database with vectorized execution, making it capable of crunching demanding analytic workloads.
Snowflake’s adaptive optimization makes sure that queries automatically get the best performance possible – no indexes, distribution keys, sort keys, or tuning parameters to manage.
Snowflake can support unlimited concurrency because its unique multi-cluster, shared data architecture allows multiple compute clusters to operate simultaneously on the same data without performance contention.
Snowflake can even scale automatically to handle varying concurrency demands with its multi-cluster virtual warehouse feature, transparently adding compute resources during peak load and scaling down when load subsides.
Learn how IAC Publishing Labs uses Snowflake to deliver real-time analytics to multiple groups of analysts.
You can concentrate on solving business problems rather than managing your database because Snowflake automates and eliminates the manual knobs and tuning required by alternative solutions.
Snowflake is a zero-management data warehouse as a service. 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 their data environment, supporting fast, easy access for their analysts and customers.
Because Snowflake can load and flatten a JSON structure of 2.5 million elements in less than two minutes, we’re able to run and process new event data every five minutes.

Built for the Cloud
Snowflake’s data warehouse is built for the cloud from the ground up. It delivers the full benefits of the cloud not possible with an on-premises data warehouse or big data platform simply moved to the cloud. Learn about our patented approach in our architecture whitepaper.
