What is Snowflake?

Snowflake is the modern data warehousing solution. Designed exclusively and natively to be a cloud-native data warehouse, Snowflake sees data warehousing differently – through the speedy, elastic and scalable lens of the cloud. Snowflake enables you to spend more time seeing your data and driving analytics, and less time managing your data warehouse.

Red Pill + Snowflake = Power Couple


Here’s why Red Pill customers love Snowflake

All About the Cloud

All About the Cloud

Snowflake was built from the ground up to be cloud first. Built for the cloud and on the cloud, there’s no wasted time provisioning and configuring a data warehouse.

Speed

Speed

Snowflake’s unique architecture is designed for speed. With the separation of compute and storage, it quickly adapts to large workloads without sacrificing performance.

Easy Administration

Easy Administration

Snowflake is known as a data “Sharehouse.” Snowflake users can securely and easily share live data sets between different accounts: partners, customers, and departments within the same organization.

Elasticity and Scalability

Elasticity and Scalability

Businesses change and innovate at the speed of light, and so do data workloads. Snowflake scales up, down or out — automatically — and companies only pay for what they use. No more estimating, provisioning and paying for future workloads.

Immediate Insight

Immediate Insight

A common pain point with business intelligence projects is waiting for infrastructure to catch up to insight. Setting up infrastructure, configuring servers, and tuning databases distracts from the main mission: gaining valuable insights from data. Snowflake enables faster access to analytics and the impact it has on the business.

Familiarity of SQL

Familiarity of SQL

Snowflake uses ANSI standard SQL, so all the normal language structures will be familiar to developers who already speak the language. The addition of the VARRINT data type enables easy ingestion of unstructured data, extending the standard data warehouse to provide data lake capabilities as well.
