Ocient vs Snowflake: A Performance Comparison

Tech Paper

What's Inside?

This paper provides a technical comparison of Snowflake and Ocient, examining the hardware, architecture, performance, and strengths of each system when used to store and analyze a 1.4-trillion row time series data set.

After running twenty queries spanning large data exploration queries that are I/O-bound, large data exploration queries that are CPU- or network-bound, and smaller data exploration queries, we compare the performance, scale, and pricing of each system, and more.
