Snowflake’s mission is to enable every organization to be data-driven.

Their cloud-built data platform makes that possible by delivering instant

elasticity, secure data sharing and per-second pricing, across multiple

clouds. Snowflake combines the power of data warehousing, the flexibility

of big data platforms and the elasticity of the cloud at a fraction of the cost

of traditional solutions.


Conventional data platforms weren’t designed to keep up with the

exploding demand for data-driven insight. They are complex, costly and

inflexible systems that have become obstacles rather than solutions to

accessing and analyzing all your data.


Alternative, “Big Data” platforms such as Hadoop are merely toolkits, not

complete solutions, that require massive resources to build and maintain.

They’re even more complex, require specialized skills, and simply weren’t

designed for modern data analytics.


Snowflake designed and implemented a new, unique architecture to stay

clear from the limitations of existing architecture and software offerings.

On-premise solutions are too complex, too expensive and getting more so

each day. Snowflake developed the service from the ground up for the

cloud, capitalizing on the leading architecture and technology of the public



People want to focus on deriving insight from data – not configuring,

tuning, and managing a data platform. Rather than just deliver traditional

software hosted in the cloud, we deliver a data platform as a service.
