Features of Snowflake Data Warehouse

Features of Snowflake Data Warehouse

1. Cloud Agnostic Solution:-

Snowflake is a professional data warehouse solution that runs on all three major cloud providers: AWS, Google Cloud Platform, and Azure all with the same consumer experience. Customers can simply integrate Snowflake into their existing cloud infrastructure and deploy it in systems that make commercial sense.

 

2. Scalability:-

Snowflake enables customers to optimize resources when huge volumes of data need to be uploaded quickly and down again when the operation is terminated without affecting service. Customers can begin with an extremely small cloud warehouse and grow up or down as necessary. Snowflake includes auto-scaling and auto-suspend capabilities to ensure minimal management.

 

3. Separation of Concurrency and Volume of work:-

Customers would thrive for resources in a typical data warehouse system, resulting in concurrency difficulties. Synchronization is no longer a problem due to Snowflake's multi-cluster design. One of the primary advantages of this design is that it allows for the separation of workloads to be run against their own computing clusters, referred to as virtual warehouses. Queries executed against one cloud warehouse would never have an effect on queries executed against another.

 

4. Security:-

Snowflake incorporates a variety of protective measures, from the means consumers use the platform to the way data is kept. You may control network policies by whitelisting IP addresses that you want to prevent from logging into your account. Snowflake supports a variety of authentication techniques, like two-factor identification and federated authentication for single sign-on.
