Relational Online Analytical Processing


Relational online database processing (ROLAP) is a database processing technique that analyzes data stored in relational databases rather than multidimensional databases (as in multidimensional online database processing or MOLAP). Because it utilizes a relational database, ROLAP can support massive amounts of data—certainly more than MOLAP.
