About Greenplum

The Greenplum Database builds on the foundations of open source database PostgreSQL.It primarily functions as a data warehouse and utilizes a shared-nothing, massively parallel processing (MPP) architecture. In this architecture, data is partitioned across multiple segment servers, and each segment owns and manages a distinct portion of the overall data; there is no disk-level sharing nor data contention among segments.

Greenplum Database Architecture

Greenplum Database utilizes a shared-nothing, massively parallel processing (MPP) architecture that has been designed for business intelligence and analytical processing. Most of today’s general-purpose relational database management systems are designed for Online Transaction Processing (OLTP) applications. Since these systems are marketed as supporting data warehousing and business intelligence (BI) applications, their customers have inevitably inherited this less-than-optimal architecture. The reality is that BI and analytical workloads are fundamentally different from OLTP transaction workloads and therefore require a profoundly different architecture.

OLTP transaction workloads require quick access and updates to a small set of records. This work is typically performed in a localized area on disk, with one or a small number of parallel units. Shared-everything architectures, in which processors share a single large disk and memory, are well suited to OLTP workloads. Shared-disk architectures, such as Oracle RAC, can also be effective for OLTP because each server can take a subset of the queries and process them independently while ensuring consistency through the shared-disk subsystem.

However, shared-everything and shared-disk architectures are quickly overwhelmed by the full-table scans, multiple complex table joins, sorting, and aggregation operations against vast volumes of data that represent the lion’s share of BI and analytical workloads. These architectures aren’t designed for the levels of parallel processing required to execute complex BI and analytical queries, and tend to bottleneck as a result of failures of the query planner to leverage parallelism, lack of aggregate I/O bandwidth, and inefficient movement of data between nodes.


The Greenplum Database shared-nothing architecture separates the physical storage of data into small units on individual segment servers each with a dedicated, independent, high-bandwidth channel connection to local disks. The segment servers are able to process every query in a fully parallel manner, use all disk connections simultaneously, and efficiently flow data between segments as query plans dictate. Because shared-nothing databases automatically distribute data and make query workloads parallel across all available hardware, they dramatically out perform general-purpose database systems on BI and analytical workloads.
