Understanding Cost in Snowflake

Snowflake cost falls into three areas:

  • Compute — User-managed (Virtual Warehouses), Snowflake-managed (serverless features like Snowpipe), and Cloud Services.

  • Storage — Data staging, database tables, materialized views, time travel, fail-safe and similar features.

  • Data transfer — Data transfers into and out of Snowflake.
