Zero copy cloning in Snowflake is the feature that allows the duplication of an object without having to create a physical copy and without having to add any more storage costs. This can be done through the command word CLONE and this allows the creation of copies of tables, schemas, and databases. However, this feature is not limited to these things, it can also create clones of other objects such as file formats and sequences to name a few. The great thing about copy cloning is that this feature allows a lot of flexibility without having to worry about the cost.
