Snowflake was built from the ground up for the cloud. It is not bound by the limitations of a legacy on-premises solution ported to the cloud.
Its multi-cluster shared data architecture separates compute from storage, enabling customers to elastically scale, up and down, automatically or on the fly.
Users can apply dedicated compute clusters to each workload in near-unlimited quantities for virtually unlimited concurrency without contention.
Once a workload is completed, compute is dialed back down so customers don’t have to pay for over-provisioned resources.
All usage is billed by the second, and easily and transparently governed. Organizations can also meter usage to allocate costs to different departments.
Governed & secure collaboration
The Data Cloud enables an organization’s most critical workloads, including seamless data collaboration within an organization; across its business units; with its ecosystem of partners, suppliers, and customers; and between any combination of the thousands of Data Cloud customers and Snowflake Marketplace providers.
The opportunity to securely share and access governed data, tools, applications, other technologies, and data services– while preserving privacy– creates a near-endless combination of strategies and solutions to advance any organization’s business.
Snowflake’s security and governance features were baked into the platform from day one, including end-to-end data encryption in transit and at rest.

Choose from a number of options to build and run your modern applications in the Data Cloud.
Snowflake enables any organization to create applications that capitalize on the data, architecture, and features inherent to the Data Cloud, and accelerate their development and go-to-market strategies through the Powered by Snowflake program.
Many choose to deploy connected apps, where data and code remain separate from each other. In this instance, the application provider maintains the application code while its customers apply the app to data that remains in their own Snowflake accounts.
In addition, Snowflake’s new Unistore workload enables a modern approach to bringing together transactional and analytical data, to power new types of applications.
