As you are facing the long side of the building – the main entrance is to your left. To the right, around the corner at the end of the building is a door which leads to the hallway where the new room is, and the first door on your right is “it”.
Data Warehouse Snowflake Overview

Last month, Jody presented a practical methodology to approach a data warehouse selection PoC project. Snowflake and Redshift are the two strong contenders in the marketplace. Continuing last month data warehouse topic, this month we invited Brian Whittington from Snowflake to give us a technical overview of their data warehouse product. If you are interested in adopting or evaluating a scalable, performant, and affordable data warehouse solution, please come to the meeting and join the discussions. If you are SQL Server DBA or developers, you will be inspired by the new Snowflake technology inside of their product.

Brian Whittington is a 20 year IT veteran whose career has focused largely on advanced analytics and big data solutions.
His experience with databases started while working at a document imaging company, Kofax Image Products, where he administered the company's Onyx CRM system used by technical support, sales and marketing. Onyx was based on SQL Server with all business logic encapsulated in stored procedures.
Today he works as a Sales Engineer for one of the hottest tech companies around, Snowflake Computing, covering Oregon and southwest Washington.
Brian resides in Portland, Oregon with his wife Jennifer and their two teenage kids Brad and Amanda…oh, and their Puerto Rican rescue dog Baxter.
