No. of Recommendations: 1 would use Mongo or Snowflake to address a different part of the requirement. E.g., IoT, one might use Mongo to handle the incoming data stream and organize it, but then use Snowflake to analyze it.

Right, that's part of my question. Would one really choose Mongo as the front-end database? Is the cost/benefit ratio for data ingestion worth it for Mongo over other choices? What about other types of data for which there's a known schema and so one can choose a relational database?

I'm not so much trying to justify SNOW as I am wondering how SNOW impacts MDB.
