Structural process overview for Snowflake on Azure

The following high-level diagram describes how Tonic Structural orchestrates the processing and moving of data in Snowflake on Azure.

Structural orchestrates the moving and transforming of data between Snowflake databases that are hosted on Azure. Structural uses Azure Blob Storage for interim storage of files that contain the source and destination data.

At a high level, the data generation process is:

  1. Structural copies the table data from the Snowflake database to files in Azure Blob Storage. You specify the container path in the Structural workspace configuration. Structural places the files in an input folder within the container path.

  2. Structural applies the configured generators to the data in the files, then writes the resulting files to an output folder in the container path.

  3. As it finishes processing each file, Structural copies the data from the container path’s output folder into the Snowflake destination database.
