Palo OLAP GPU technology was developed in cooperation with researchers from the University of Freiburg and the University of Western Australia. It is a technology that uses NVIDIA Tesla graphics processing units (GPUs) to speed up large data processing jobs for Business Intelligence applications .

In addition to the CPU of the server, Palo OLAP GPU leverages the massively parallel architecture of NVIDIA Tesla GPU and uses their tremendous computing capability to speed up large OLAP aggregations. Modern GPUs come with hundreds of socalled streaming processors and with several Gb of graphics memory that allows us to store analysis and reporting data directly on the GPU. Palo OLAP GPU is available as a rampup version since the beginning of April and will be optimized with a few selected customers under business conditions.
