Snowflake is a fully managed SaaS that provides a single platform for data warehousing, data lakes data engineering, data science, data application development, and secure sharing and consumption of real-time/shared data. Snowflake features out-of-the-box features like separation of storage and compute, on-the-fly scalable compute, data sharing, data cloning, and third-party tools support in order to handle the demanding needs of growing enterprises.
Modern cloud computing services such as the Snowflake Data Cloud make it easy for users to develop and scale data-intensive applications. A Snowflake Data Warehouse can be deployed on any of the three major cloud providers - AWS, GCP or Microsoft Azure. Snowflake querying follows the standard ANSI SQL protocol and it supports fully structured as well as semi-structured data like JSON, Parquet, XML, etc.
Snowflake is famous for pioneering the Data Cloud and for championing consumption-based pricing. It’s innovative, and the architecture is incredible. It has delivered significant value in large part because of its SQL interface and how easy it is to get a project up and running. As companies increasingly run workloads in the cloud, it has become more challenging to properly attribute, monitor, and find surplus workloads to turn off to be more efficient.
That’s where Bluesky comes in. We exist to make data efficient and simple, and to make data drive more business value, faster. With Bluesky, you can eliminate data infrastructure inefficiencies—not only improving your Snowflake user experience, but freeing up engineering and financial resources that, in turn, can be funneled back into your business.
Bluesky enables data cloud users to get the most out of each “unit” of computing by ensuring resources are used efficiently and with guardrails to align cost to value. Bluesky’s product analyzes historical query patterns to detect similar or duplicative groupings. Bluesky can use these groups to suggest high-impact tuning options for valuable workloads and kill long-running queries that don’t provide much value.
#1 Gain insight and control over your Snowflake environment. #2 Maximize the return on our Snowflake investment with insight into performance, quality, cost and much more. Improve resource efficiency and align cost to value.
We want customers to be able to automate safeguards that allow experimentation and innovation but prevent known wasteful spending. Our advanced AI engine provides full visibility into how much you’re currently paying for data cloud resources, as well as how much you would save if you followed Bluesky’s tuning recommendations to optimize those resources.
Bluesky delivers an intelligent workload optimization and cost governance solution for modern data cloud environments, helping Snowflake users continuously improve workload performance, optimize costs for superior financial management and accelerate data-driven innovation.
