Hybrid Online Analytical Processing


Hybrid online analytical processing (HOLAP) is a database processing technique that takes advantage of the best of both relational online analytical processing (ROLAP) and multidimensional online analytical processing (MOLAP) by combining aspects of each into one platform. Usually, this means that HOLAP stores data in relational and multidimensional databases, employing whichever type suites a given a task. Because it combines aspects of ROLAP and MOLAP, HOLAP achieves the advanced processing of MOLAP, and the massive data capacity of ROLAP.
