Snowflake Review

Good performance and it is easy to write queries

What is our primary use case?

I work as a data scientist and our primary use of Snowflake is for machine learning.

Recently, we were trying to extract data to determine the best configuration settings for one of our products.

What is most valuable?

As it is SQL-like, it is easy to write queries.

The querying speed is fast.

What needs improvement?

We would like to have an on-premises deployment option that has the same features, including scalability.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been working with Snowflake for six or seven months.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

From what I have seen and heard, I think that Snowflake is pretty stable. I haven't faced any such problems, myself. I am not aware of the entirety of the lifecycle, but I haven't heard any complaints.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

My impression is that this product is pretty scalable.

How are customer service and technical support?

I have not been in contact with technical support, although my team has been and they are okay with it. My impression is that they are good.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The pricing for Snowflake is competitive.

What other advice do I have?

My advice for anybody who is considering implementing Snowflake is that from a user's standpoint, it is a good product. Having a database in a cloud setup means that you don't have to scale and it has got many features already included.

For our use case, we found this Snowflake was good enough and did not need any enhancements. I recommend using it.

I would rate this solution a ten out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?
