Overall, Snowpipe is a powerful and versatile data loading tool that is easy to use and scalable. It is a good choice for loading small to medium-sized data sets of semi-structured or streaming data.

COPY INTO is a simpler data loading tool that is also easy to use and scalable. However, it does not support semi-structured data or streaming data.

ELT tools are more complex to use than Snowpipe or COPY INTO, but they offer more flexibility. They can be used to load data from a variety of sources, transform the data, and load it into a data warehouse or data lake.

The best data loading tool for you will depend on your specific needs and requirements. If you are looking for a simple and easy-to-use tool for loading small to medium-sized data sets of semi-structured or streaming data, Snowpipe is a good choice. If you are looking for a more flexible tool that can load data from a variety of sources and transform the data, an ELT tool is a good choice.
