A true elastic data warehouse where you can scale computing by just issuing a SQL query

What is our primary use case?

We use Snowflake for our data warehouse. Amazing product. Redshift cannot compete with a true elastic data warehouse where you can scale computing by just issuing a SQL query (increase computer power) and resizing it down or putting computing unit to sleep. Snowflake has many more features: When combined with Alooma, it's the best data integration system. No need for Talend and all these cumbersome tools.
