ALSO CALLED: Array Processing, Parallel Computing
DEFINITION: MPP (massively parallel processing) is the coordinated processing of a program by multiple processors that work on different parts of the program, with each processor using its own operating system and memory. Typically, MPP processors communicate using some messaging interface. In some implementations, up to 200 or more processors can work on the same application. An "interconnect" arrangement  …

Ovum Technology Review of Vertica’s Analytic Database
sponsored by Vertica Systems
WHITE PAPER: Column-based databases can be slow deleting and updating data. Vertica’s Analytic Database is designed specifically for storing and querying large datasets. Vertica’s differentiator is that it combines a columnar database engine with MPP and shared-nothing architecture, aggressive data-compression rates, and high availability.

PARALLEL PROCESSING DEFINITION (continued): … MPP (massively parallel processing) is the coordinated processing of a program by multiple processors that work on different parts of the program, with each processor using its own operating system and memory. Typically, MPP processors communicate using some messaging interface. In some implementations, up to 200 or more processors can work on the same application. An "interconnect" arrangement of data paths allows messages to be sent between processors. Typically, the setup for MPP is more complicated, requiring thought about how to partition a common database among processors and how to assign work among the processors. An MPP system is also known as a "loosely coupled" or "shared nothing" system.An MPP system is considered better than a symmetrically parallel system (SMP) for applications that allow a number of databases to be searched in parallel. These include decision support system and data warehouse applications.
