Snowflake is built for speed for even the most intense workloads. Its patented architecture separates compute from storage so you can scale compute up and down, and on the fly, without delay or disruption. You get the performance you need exactly when you need it.
Snowflake is also a fully columnar database with vectorized execution, making it capable of crunching demanding analytic workloads.
Snowflake’s adaptive optimization makes sure that queries automatically get the best performance possible – no indexes, distribution keys, sort keys, or tuning parameters to manage.
