What is clustering key in Snowflake?

In Snowflake, a clustering key is a column or set of columns that determines the physical layout and organization of data within a table.  Basically,it’s like a blueprint that tells Snowflake how to sort and store data in smaller sections called micro-partitions. This sorting helps Snowflake quickly find the right data when you run a query, making your queries faster and more efficient.
