massively parallel processing

Short for massively parallel processing, MPP is computing that uses CPUs in parallel to execute a single program. A difference between SMP (symmetric multiprocessing) and MPP is that with MPP, each CPU (central processing unit) has its own memory to prevent delays. With SMP, you could experience delays when all the CPUs attempt to access memory at the same time.
