Tip | Reduce data transfer volume and costs#

Data transfer between cloud storage providers can be considerable. In general, you can use the following strategies to reduce the data transfer volume and cost:

  • Work on compressed file formats.

  • Leverage push-down compute in-database as much as possible.

  • If you don’t have SQL-type cloud data storage, leverage the managed S3 storage for intermediate datasets in your Flows, and sync only the first input and last output to your external cloud storage to minimize data transfer.
