PG-Storm: Let PostgreSQL run faster on the GPU

  PostgreSQL extension PG-Storm, allows users to customize the data scan and run queries faster. CPU-intensive work load is identified and transferred to the GPU to take advantage of the powerful GPU parallel execution ability to complete the data task. The combination of few number of core processors, RAM bandwidth, and the GPU has a unique advantage. GPUs typically have hundreds of processor cores and RAM bandwidths that are several times larger than CPUs. They can handle large numbers of computations in parallel, so their operations are very efficient. PG-Storm based on two basic ideas: On-the-fly native GPU code generation. […]
