1. Snowflake Computing

Snowflake Computing

Founded: 2012

“Snowflake is the leading data warehouse built for the cloud. Its unique architecture delivers proven breakthroughs in performance, concurrency and simplicity. For the first time, multiple groups can access petabytes of data at the same time, up to 200 times faster and 10 times less expensive than solutions not built for the cloud.

Snowflake is a fully-managed service with a pay-as-you-go-model that works on structured and semi-structured data. Prior generations of data warehouses created the struggle for data which results in groups waiting in line to get at data; not looking at the same data; and, wondering if they’re acting on the most recent data. Snowflake’s data warehouse built for the cloud finally ends this struggle.”
