Snowflake Database Services from Atlas Systems

Snowflake Database Services from Atlas Systems

Snowflake is an analytic data warehouse provided as Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) offering that runs completely on cloud infrastructure. There’s no hardware or software to select, install, configure, or manage, so it’s ideal for organizations that don’t want to dedicate resources for setup, maintenance, and support of in-house servers. Snowflake architecture allows storage and computes to scale independently and provides a lot of flexibility for companies to reduce operational costs.
