MPP database is a type of database or data warehouse where the data and processing power are split up among several different nodes (servers), with one leader node and one or many compute nodes.

MPP databases can scale horizontally by adding more compute resources (nodes), rather than having to worry about upgrading to more and more expensive individual servers (scaling vertically). Adding more nodes to a cluster allows the data and processing to be spread across more machines, which means the query will be completed sooner.
