Calculate and estimate your future Snowflake data cloud costs with this DIY Biztory Snowflake pricing calculator. Understand where costs lie, what you're paying for and adjust your Snowflake usage patterns to reduce your anticipated costs.
Things To Remember Before You Start
When guesstimating running times in the calculator, know that you shouldn't always tick the "we're running 24/7" checkbox. Only fill-in the running duration of your processes - ETL, analytics etc. Snowflake is a managed service and is, by definition, always-on.
After some idle time - typically 5 minutes - Snowflake auto-suspends your warehouse (or, in simpler words - goes to sleep). When you execute a new query, Snowflake warehouse will resume automatically.
A small-volume warehouse is powerful enough to handle a couple of hundred millions of records
This is an unofficial calculator from Biztory, a snowflake premier partner. All calculations do not represent final pricing.
Cost estimations are calculated per second, with a minimum of 60 second.
Snowflake offers a built-in data pipeline (aka Snowpipe) to ingest data from external files. In some scenarios, using Snowpipes can reduce your data loading costs.
Be aware of Snowflake versions and plans. They may utilize different resources and each may carry a different price-tag (more on this below).
You may benchmark Snowflake using your existing, real-life data by performing a POC.
