We often relate data warehousing to a central infrastructure that is hard to scale and manage with the growing demands around data. Snowflake, however, is a new SQL Data Warehouse as a Service solution built from the ground up for the cloud. With a bunch of neatly crafted features such as database-level atomicity, structured and semi-structured data support, in-database analytics functions and above all with a clear separation of storage, compute and services layer, Snowflake addresses most of the challenges faced in data warehousing.
