Modern enterprise applications represent an emergent application arena that requires the processing of queries and computations over massive amounts of data. Large-scale, multi-GPU cluster systems potentially present a vehicle for major improvements in throughput and consequently over-all performance. However, throughput improvement using GPUs is challenged by the distinctive memory and computational characteristics of Relational Algebra (RA) operators that are central to queries for answering business questions. This paper introduces the design, implementation, and evaluation of Red Fox, a compiler and runtime infrastructure for executing relational queries on GPUs.
