Ocient vs Snowflake

A query performance comparison for typical SQL patterns

What's Inside?

We loaded a 256 TB dataset and schema on Ocient and Snowflake systems to see how query performance would compare at hyperscale. We ran performance tests using typical patterns used in data warehouse solutions.

Learn how our benchmark comparison found that Ocient performed all hyperscale data queries faster than Snowflake, in most cases up to 10x faster, and in some specific cases up to 900x faster.

In this paper we cover:

– Remote Object Storage Architecture vs. Compute Adjacent Storage Architecture
– SQL Performance Analysis
– Individual Queries Run
– And More!
