How can I accurately estimate my Snowflake Monthly costs?
Hah. This is one of the key questions related to Snowflake. It really depends on your workloads and how you use Snowflake. The larger the organization and amount of people using Snowflake then the harder it typically is to estimate. We have tools here at Snowflake Solutions site that let you roughly estimate your Snowflake Monthly Costs.\n\nIf you really really need to maintain a budget and estimate costs very accurately then you need to have very standard workloads. Loading workloads if they are standard can be estimated very accurately. If you other workloads like reporting, CRM, and data science that are more ad hoc then it gets harder and harder to estimate costs. You can use resource monitors to completely control your max costs. Be very careful though to have very very limited access to who can change resource monitor limits. Also, you need to be very careful with time travel as well as any of the additional services with costs such as Materialized Views, Automated Clustering, Snowpipe, Search Optimization Service.
