Scanning an entire table to return output for a single query is computationally intensive, so many technologies rely on partitioning tables to improve query performance for big data. Snowflake implements a form of partitioning known as micro-partitioning where all tables are automatically divided into micro-partitions that users don't need to manage. In this course, explore and execute queries using Snowflake's web interface, Snowsight. Next, learn how to create dashboards in Snowsight and add various charts. Finally, discover how permanent, temporary, and transient tables in Snowflake differ and how such tables can be created, used, and cloned. Upon completion, you'll be able to view database objects in Snowsight, run queries and build dashboards, and differentiate the types of Snowflake tables.
