Snowflake Partner Australia
Analytics8 is an official Snowflake partner in Australia
Snowflake offers a fresh, future-focused approach to data warehousing. It is built from the cloud up with patent-pending new architecture that delivers the power of data warehousing, the flexibility of Big Data platforms, and the elasticity of the cloud – at a fraction of the cost of traditional solutions.
Snowflake: The data warehouse built for the cloud
As data sources become less structured and more diverse, and users become more demanding, traditional data warehouses are struggling to cope without redesign and feature updates.
Because it has been built in the cloud and for the cloud, Snowflake offers completely unlimited storage and compute. It can take full advantage of cloud infrastructure, while retaining the positive attributes of existing solutions.
With Snowflake you can:
- Support all of your data in one system
- Seamlessly share data across organisations
- Use the SQL that your team already knows
Snowflake is paid for as a usage-based service. You pay for the data that your store, and the number of Snowflake Compute credits you use. This linear pricing model makes it easy to plan expenditure and avoid massive upfront expenditure.
Snowflake’s automated tuning and elastic compute have proven real game changers for the data & analytics solutions that we deliver for our customers. Infrastructure planning and performance optimisation, which would normally take up a significant amount of effort on any initiative (both with on-premise as well as with competing DBaaS cloud offerings), are no longer an issue.
The ability to granularly break down as-a-service cost to the level of individual database queries and users makes Total Cost of Ownership transparent and easy to manage. Snowflake has generated a level of excitement that we do not see very often in our industry, both from our customers and our own technical team – Thomas Janssen, Data & Integration Practice Lead
