Snowflake is great when you need to store large amounts of data while retaining the ability to query that data quickly. It is very reliable and allows for auto-scaling on large queries meaning that you're only paying for the power you actually use. It's taken queries that took 20+ minutes to run on redshift down to 2 minutes on Snowflake.

Pros

  • One of the oldest distributors of enterprise standard Hadoop.
  • Distribution is based on open source Hadoop even though customizations are done on top of that.
  • Faster updates and bug fixes to the products as they have Apache committers.
  • Central configuration and control of your Hadoop platform (but still needs improvements).

Cons

Cloudera Enterprise Data Hub

  • As any new technology, difficult to hire resources who know the solution specially in APJC to help with Lab and PoC activities.

Snowflake

  • Very limited amount of tabs - saved queries, which requires us to store the code somewhere else and re-use existing queries.
  • Performance can really be a problem if there are many users on the system at the same time.
  • SnowFlake support sometimes can be hard to reach.

Cloudera is expanding with varied range of products and it looks to me as a challenging company and very competitive in the Big Data market. I would recommend to using the latest stable version as new features are added with each version and different bugs are fixed. As Big data is a constantly evolving so trying new Cloudera products helps businesses to stay competitive in the market domain as every big organization is now trying to move to Big Data.

SnowFlake is very cost effective and we also like the fact we can stop, start and spin up additional processing engines as we need to. We also like the fact that it's easy to connect our SQL IDEs to Snowflake and write our queries in the environment that we are used to

The web front end is OK, but they could improve the product with a front end GUI. We have connected DBEAVER to snowflake with an ODBC driver, but the queries are a lot slower from DBEAVER, compared to the web front end. SSIS also has an ODBC connection, but it is also a slower to pull data from snowflake. Overall the usability is good.

Overall, the support from Snowflake has been very good. Since we are one of the major users for Snowflake and have a dedicated tech team to solve all the technical problem on our way. On the side of the technical problem, any sql related questions can be found from everywhere online.

I have not evaluated any similar products, and in fact, don't know of any direct competitor. Amazon's Redshift has a similar spirit.

Snowflake

The average percentage of time that a data warehouse is actually doing something is around 20%. Given this, the price by query estimate becomes an important pricing consideration. For this, Snowflake crucially decouples of storage and compute. With Snowflake you pay for 1) storage space used and 2) amount of time spent querying data. Snowflake also has a notion of a “logical warehouse” which is the “compute” aspect of the database. These warehouses can be scaled up or down to deliver different grades of performance. You can also configure the number of compute nodes to parallelize query execution. These warehouses can be configured to “pause” when you’re not using them for cost efficiency. As a result, you can have a super beefy warehouse for BI queries that’s only running when people are using your BI tools, while your background batch jobs can use cheaper hardware.
