Loading Continuously Using Snowpipe¶
Snowpipe is Snowflake’s continuous data ingestion service. Snowpipe loads data within minutes after files are added to a stage and submitted for ingestion.
With Snowpipe’s serverless compute model, Snowflake manages load capacity, ensuring optimal compute resources to meet demand. In short, Snowpipe provides a “pipeline” for loading fresh data in micro-batches as soon as it is available.
