Snowflake Training

Snowflake is a cloud-based data warehousing platform that offers Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) capabilities. It provides a fully managed, scalable, and secure solution for storing, processing, and analyzing data. It is built on a multi-cluster, shared data architecture that allows users to access and analyze data with high concurrency and without complex infrastructure management. ExitCertified is proud to offer high-quality training on Snowflake. You can start with the Snowflake Fundamentals class, which prepares you for the SnowPro Core Certification, or move on to advanced classes for Data Engineers, Administrators, or Architects.

What makes Snowflake different?

Snowflake is an innovative, cloud-based platform for storing, processing, and analyzing data. It was designed to simplify data management and maximize the efficiency of data workflows, allowing businesses to focus on data-driven decision making. Snowflake features storage, compute, and global services layers that are physically separated but logically integrated. Data workloads scale independently from one another, making it an ideal platform for data warehousing, data lakes, data engineering, data science, modern data sharing, and developing data applications.

With so many SaaS Data warehouse solutions available competing against one another, Snowflake stands out among the crowd for its uniqueness in design and approach.  Unlike other data warehouse systems, Snowflake is not built on Big Data platforms but works on a new SQL engine best suited for the cloud.

Some of the well-known features of Snowflake are: 

  • Cloning – the clone feature creates an instant copy of any Snowflake object with no storage costUndrop – any dropped object (databases, schemas, tables, etc.) can be undropped
  • Pay-as-you-go pricing – Snowflake offers a pay-as-you-go pricing model that enables businesses to only pay for the resources they use
  • Data Sharing – Snowflake enables secure data sharing across multiple accounts, enabling businesses to collaborate with partners and customers without compromising data security
  • Time Travel – Time travel refers to the ability to query data as it existed at a specific point in time
  • Fail-safe – In the event of any disaster like hardware or disk failures, Snowflake engineers can recover the data for up to seven days

Before getting started with this software, it can be helpful to undergo Snowflake training. This training encompasses a wide range of topics and typically starts with an introduction to the basics, including Snowflake’s architecture, components, and functionality. Another crucial part of training involves learning how to load data into Snowflake. Learners acquire the skills necessary to move data from various sources into the platform, understanding different data loading methods and techniques. This includes using bulk loading operations and Snowflake's own data loading service, Snowpipe. Queries play an important role when it comes to interacting with data in Snowflake, and so most training programs cover Snowflake's SQL extensions and how to use them to perform complex data manipulations and analysis. Learners delve into creating databases, tables, and executing SQL queries within the platform. At the end of the training, learners usually gain some type of hands-on experience, applying critical skills and concepts to real-world scenarios. By doing so, they cement the knowledge they’ve acquired up to that point in training. This allows them to get the most out of Snowflake in the field. 

ExitCertified offers quality Snowflake training that prepares learners for six different SnowPro certifications. By completing ExitCertified’s training courses, you can be better prepared to take and ace these exams, thereby boosting your confidence with Snowflake and furthering your career goals.
