What makes snowflake different?
Snowflake is a data warehouse (Data Warehouse) that works in a service mode operated from the cloud. Compared to traditional Data Warehouse systems, Snowflake is faster, more flexible, and simpler to use.
Stambia's component for Snowflake is built on the same philosophy: to provide fast, flexible, and easy-to-use data integration, especially with Snowflake. Stambia's unified approach enables users to quickly familiarize themselves with integration tasks, thereby significantly reducing Time to Market.
What are the advantages of Snowflake?
With Snowflake, companies can benefit from the performance of a Data Warehouse combined with the flexibility of the Cloud. Thus, users can gain insights from data instantly. In addition, usage is billed per second. This allows for infinite scalability and cost reduction. The performances are also elastic and can be adapted to the needs of the users.
The data sharing can be done in real-time and safely, enabling businesses to collaborate with their partners without risk. In addition, data can be replicated between multiple regions and cloud providers to ensure continuous availability without downtime. Snowflake is compatible with AWS Clouds, Microsoft Azure, and more recently with the Google Cloud Platform.
Why is the Snowflake platform a revolution?
In the era of digitalization of the company, and thanks to the rise of new technologies, organizations generate more and more data. Now all industries are crumbling under vast volumes of information. Big Data overwhelms computer systems traditionally, to the extent that these data are too often untapped.
A Data Warehouse-type platform makes it possible to store, process, and analyze data from multiple sources in order to generate value and use it. However, Snowflake offers to take advantage of this advantage in the form of a Cloud service.
Users benefit from simplified access and elasticity of resources. The storage capacity and processing power are theoretically unlimited. In addition, maintenance and update operations are taken into account by the service provider.
Of thousands of businesses now use Snowflake. Users range from small businesses to Fortune 500 giants.
A vast ecosystem of technology partners
Snowflake is also distinguished by its large ecosystem of technology partners. Here are oneof the technologies that complement the Cloud Data Warehouse.
