In the digital world, everything in and around us has become “data” one or the other way. When it comes to organizations, data must be managed and accessed by advanced business analytic tools to grab crucial business insights. Maintaining legacy data warehouses would create performance bottleneck, scalability issues, high-cost infrastructure, and maintenance costs with their predefined and inflexible service bundles, continuous patches & DBA activities to be in line with the market trends. This is the key reason for organizations to modernize their data platforms.
Here are the 6 ways, how the Snowflake platform reduces your data warehouse maintenance cost with its unique architecture!
Snowflake platform accepts both structured and semi-structured data models. Since this platform automatically optimizes the data storage without the need for transformation or standardization of schema, you need not employ and pay for ETL tools and resources.
The flexible architecture of the Snowflake platform makes it effortless for DBAs to load high volume data by automatically scaling up compute resources. On successful completion of high-volume loads and queries, the users can scale down the compute resources as per their needs.
With this automated scalability of the Snowflake platform, you can reduce the costs spent on integrated data warehouse bundles.
Legacy data warehouses are difficult to manage in terms of concurrent activities and complex queries. With these complexities, your enterprise requires expertise developers and DBAs to tune your database schema’s & queries now and then.
Snowflake cloud data platform has made it more seamless with its multi-cluster architecture for multi-users. The compute resources leveraged by one virtual instance would not affect other instances in the Snowflake platform, each can operate and scale independently. DBAs and other resources accessing data platforms can work independently without any wait time. You can cut off the compute resources that are not in use to save the Snowflake platform cost.
The Snowflake cloud data platform enables data sharing within the community and to third parties. Snowflake users can share their data with third-party consumers by signing up for a reader account on the platform. In terms of legacy data warehouses, you need to download/export data and then share it with specific tools for accessibility of business partners and third parties. Whereas, with the Snowflake data cloud, you can create a reader account and share the specific zero-copy clone for accessibility. The changes made in source data of Snowflake platform automatically reflects in the third-party or customer clone. The data sharing features on the Snowflake are with no extra infrastructure cost! This architecture of Snowflake can cut down the cost spent on data-sharing tools and other resources.
Snowflake operates on top of cloud infrastructure and is distributed across geographical locations. This architecture of the Snowflake contributes to reliability and better disaster recovery management for enterprise data. The Snowflake aligns with security compliances and is SOC 2 Type II certified. They have add-on features for HIPAA customers such as PHI support and encryption across the major networks. These features can reduce the costs spent on security maintenance, disaster recovery activities, resources, and a huge impact on customers when there is downtime.
Snowflake platform renders auto-resolving data platform activities for its users. Some of those activities are:
Automating these repetitive and hectic tasks reduces the workload of data engineers, thereby focusing on high-potential activities.
