Title: Snowflake - A Data Warehouse built for the Cloud

Abstract:

Snowflake Is a young Silicon Valley startup that implements a data warehouse service in the cloud. Snowflake achieves scalability and elasticity by separating compute and storage. Snowflake provides data warehouse as a service: a user can spin up warehouses of different sizes and run queries on shared data. In this talk I will demo the Snowflake service and give a broad overview of the features and the architecture. Furthermore I will give a more detailed overview of our internal metadata store and my current project in this area.
