Pricing and Cost Advice
Information Not Available
"Pricing can be confusing for customers.""The whole licensing system is based on credit points. You can also make a license agreement with the company so that you buy credit points and then you use them. What you do not use in one year can be carried over to the next year.""You pay based on the data that you are storing in the data warehouse and there are no maintenance costs.""It is not cheap.""The pricing for Snowflake is competitive.""On average, with the number of queries that we run, we pay approximately $200 USD per month.""Pricing is approximately $US 50 per DB. Terabyte is around $US 50 per month.""The price of Snowflake is very reasonable."
