How does Snowflake work?

How does Snowflake work?

  • Data ingestion: Snowflake stores data in cloud object storage like Amazon S3 or Microsoft Azure Blob Storage, using immutable micro-partitions that are compressed and encrypted for security.
  • Process query: When a query is submitted, Snowflake automatically spins up compute resources to process the query. This allows for parallel processing across multiple nodes for faster query performance.
  • SQL-based analytics: Snowflake uses a combination of its own proprietary technology and standard SQL for query processing, enabling a wide range of SQL-based analytics and reporting functions.
  • Security and compliance: Snowflake’s focus on security and compliance includes data encryption, access controls, and regular security audits. Its multi-tenant architecture ensures data isolation between customers.
  • Robust performance: Snowflake’s unique architecture and focus on performance and security make it a valuable platform for businesses seeking insights from their data.

Frequently Asked Questions

How will you make a transition from the current on-premises data warehouse to Snowflake on time and within budget?

Before discussing how you will transition from the on-premises data warehouse to Snowflake, let’s look at what data types you can migrate to Snowflake and how to prepare your data for a Snowflake migration.

You can store structured data at any size in Snowflake, according to your needs. Snowflake supports any valid, single-byte delimiters, including CSV and TSV formats. Snowflake also supports semi-structured data types, including JSON, Avro, ORC, XML, Parquet, etc. For unstructured data, use Snowflake’s Snowpark. Snowpark enables the storage, processing and querying of unstructured data, such as medical images or call center recordings.

Here’s a three-step process to migrate data from the on-premises data warehouse to Snowflake. The following steps use a CSV example to illustrate simple data migration.

  • Select and split your data
  • Migrate data to a Snowflake staging area
  • Verify your cloud migration

Why is Snowflake all you need for all your data-related needs, or what are the benefits of Snowflake?

Snowflake is a cloud data warehouse available as software-as-a-service (SaaS). It has a pay-as-you-go model. Snowflake can be hosted on cloud platforms such as AWS, GCP and Azure. Snowflake’s architecture separates cloud services, storage and computing. So, one can run multiple workloads in parallel with no resource contention.

Snowflake data warehouse separates computation from storage. Hence, data loads can continue to run on virtual warehouses without interfering with business users who retrieve data for reporting purposes. Snowflake, an elastic cloud data warehouse, automatically scales up and down according to your needs. That’s how the platform balances between performance and cost. It supports a multi-cluster, meaning it can add resources to manage user and query concurrency needs during peak hours. All of these solve traditional data warehouse resource contention limitations.

How much does the Snowflake data warehouse cost?

Snowflake’s elasticity and multi-cluster architecture make it popular. Snowflake’s pricing model is based on two consumption-based metrics: compute usage and data storage.

Compute charges

Snowflake charges compute usage through the number of credits you use. The platform consumes your credit based on queries you run or performs a service like data loading with Snowpipe, data analysis with SQL, etc. Considering compute hours you need per hour need per hour for each of your warehouses and the number of warehouses by the size you require, Snowflake has different rates and editions to offer:

Snowflake calls X-Small, Small, Medium, Large, and X-Large to to 4X-Large ‘T-Shirt’ buckets. These T-shirts are virtual data warehouses that provide compute resources that power query execution. The platform provides 10 T-shirt sizes. Nevertheless, 5X and 6X are in preview, currently only available on AWS. With each data warehouse, you will consume credits per second of usage.

Data storage charges

Two factors determine Snowflake’s charges for data storage. First, consider the number of bytes you store per month and how frequently you move data between regions or clouds. Automatic compression of all data stored reduces storage costs and the total compressed file size is used to calculate an account’s storage bill.

Snowflake charges are usage-based

In the United States, for example, Snowflake storage costs start at a flat rate of $23 per compressed TB of data stored. Snowflake Standard Edition has a cost of $0.00056 per second for each credit consumed. Snowflake Enterprise Edition costs $0.0011 per second for each credit consumed.

Adopt the platform’s USP: the pay-as-you-go model

With Snowflake’s consumption-based pricing model, you are billed for usage by the second. With the platform’s auto-stop and auto-resume features, you can stop resources you don’t need.

The virtual warehouses run their queries independently and automatically. This is the biggest benefit benefit of using Snowflake. Users can suspend a specific virtual warehouse manually or automatically if no queries are active, with user-defined rules (for example, ‘suspend after two minutes of inactivity.’). Charges are also suspended for idle compute time once the warehouses have been suspended.

Snowflake’s operations are instantaneous, including suspending, resuming, increasing, and decreasing operations. Hence, customers can pay only for their actual use.

How do you plan for the successful implementation of Snowflake for a client?

We consider multiple factors when implementing Snowflake. The following are some points to consider based on that:

From deciding the data types of the client need to migrate to Snowflake, and the compute layers they will require to meet their business needs. In addition, to cloud services that provide reporting and analytics, our Snowflake developers help plan an end-to-end Snowflake implementation.

Additionally, we help clients in selecting the right data warehouse size based on diverse query types and requirements. Our team ensures data security both in transit and at rest during Snowflake implementation.

It is not enough to decide on the data journey. It is equally imperative to manage and validate the pipeline data to gain trustworthy, valuable and actionable insights. We emphasize maintaining quality pipeline data for our clients. This optimizes costs and improves query performance by streamlining data loading.

To help clients maximize Snowflake and optimize their data, we take a detailed look at each consideration.
