Created in 2012, Snowflake is a fully managed SaaS tool that centralizes data warehousing, data lakes, data engineering, data science, and data application development on any of the leading public and private clouds.

The tool works equally well on a single server in the cloud as in a deployment spanning hundreds of servers and hundreds of terabytes of data. Snowflake’s unique selling point comes from its layered architecture. At the base is the Database Storage layer, where Snowflake stores data loaded into the platform.

The Compute layer is made up of multiple node clusters. At each data warehouse, any data loaded does not compete for the same resources. In addition, Snowflake uses a common language, SQL, to interact with the Snowflake technical architecture.
