Sports App Strava Ditches Redshift for Snowflake


Popular sports app Strava has taken its 120 TB data warehouse, 13 trillion GPS data points, 15 million uploads/week and 1.5 billion analytics points to data warehouse Snowflake, after running into scalability issues with its existing AWS Redshift service.

Strava, based in San Francisco, has over 35 million cyclists, runners and other athletes in 195 countries using its service.

It started using Snowflake in early 2018 after running into concurrency issues, the company said; making the move after noticing that Redshift was taking more than 20 minutes to respond to hundreds of queries per week.
