With the Snowflake data warehouse your business will benefit from:
- Zero Management – Snowflake’s modern, cloud data warehouse reduces complexity with built-in performance, so there’s no infrastructure to tweak, no knobs to turn and no tuning required.
- All of your data - Create a single source of truth to easily store, integrate and extract critical insight from petabytes of structured and semi-structured data (JSON, XML, AVRO).
- All of your users - Provide access to an architecturally unlimited number of concurrent users and applications without eroding performance.
- Pay only for what you use - Snowflake’s built-for-the-cloud solution scales storage separate from compute, up and down, transparently and automatically.
