SNOWFLAKE AS SAAS

Snowflake is a Data Solution provided as Software-as-a-Service (SaaS). Snowflake enables data storage, processing, and analytic solutions that are faster, easier to use, and far more flexible than traditional offerings. It combines a new SQL query engine with an innovative architecture natively designed for the cloud. Snowflake releases new features weekly.
