Is Greenplum Database ACID compliant and, if so, can I use it for transaction processing (OLTP applications)?

Yes, Greenplum Database provides full compliance with ACID (Atomicity, Consistency, Isolation and Durability) semantics of a transaction. Greenplum Database can be used for transaction processing (OLTP) applications; however, the full performance advantages of the MPP architecture are best leveraged by large-scale analytical workloads.
