Connector Snowflake

Snowflake is a cloud-based data warehousing platform that revolutionizes how organizations manage and analyze their data. With its unique multi-cluster, multi-cloud architecture, Snowflake enables seamless data sharing and collaboration across various platforms. When used as a connector to export data from Snowflake to a CDP, Snowflake plays a key role in facilitating the secure and efficient transfer of structured and semi-structured data. This connection enhances data-driven decision-making by ensuring that customer data is readily available and actionable within the broader context of marketing, analytics, and other customer-centric initiatives.

Loaded tables will be visible in out/tables.


Remember: Snowflake is able to handle very large data. Usually, when you have such large datasets, you do not store them in 1 file, Because files have a size limit and it is hard working with 1 file compared with hundreds of small files (eg. better for parallelization of calculations). Hence, each query is output into a folder as a set of csv.gz files. If you want to work with a single CSV, you can use bash to cat it together, then gunzip.
