Pricing and Cost Advice

Information not available
"It is not cheap."
"The solution is costly, making it unsuitable for midsize organizations due to its price."
"There is a licensing for this solution and we purchased an enterprise license. Overall the solution is cost-effective."
"The solution is expensive but worth the cost because the quality is there."
"I have worked with multiple clouds, and cost-wise, it is a bit costlier than others, such as Redshift. Its price should be reduced."
"Pricing is approximately $US 50 per DB. Terabyte is around $US 50 per month."
"Snowflake goes by credits. For a financial institution where you have 5,000 employees, monthly costs may run up to maybe $5,000 to $6,000. This is actually based on the usage. It is mostly the compute cost. Your computing cost is the variable that is actually based on your usage. It is pay-per-use. In a pay-per-use case, you won't be spending more than $6,000 to $7,000 a month. It is not more than that for a small or medium enterprise, and it may come down to $100K per year. Storage is very standard, which is $23 a terabyte. It is not much for any enterprise. If you have even 20 terabytes, you are not spending more than $400 per month, which may turn out to be $2,000 to $3,000 per annum."
"Comparing Snowflake to on-prem options such as Oracle or SAP, it seemed more cost-effective."
