Continuous integration and continuous deployment using Datavault Builder on Snowflake.
We have uploaded a short presentation on how Snowflake’s unique Zero Copy Cloning feature can be used with the Datavault Builder to create a very powerful CI/CD pipeline
This works so well as the Datavault Builder is storing all its metadata, structures, and data in one database. By cloning this database, you get a perfect copy of an existing environment. This process is simple – just start a new environment with Datavault Builder using docker – and very fast – thanks to Snowflake’ outstanding, scalable performance.
Setting up a new environment is taking literally just minutes.
Datavault Builder leverages the Zero Copy Cloning feature for full CI/CD by enabling developers to start new sandboxes in instances and deploy the changes back into the model using GIT and APIs. Your GIT flow-based CI/CD enables you to work on different development branches simultaneously and create a strong development pipeline. The combination of Datavault Builder and the Snowflake makes DataOps a reality.
