Partitioning for Beginners

Do you have problems executing queries that take too long because the entire table always has to be scanned?
The maintenance window for index management and statistics management is no longer sufficient because the database (s) are too large?
Loading data blocks access to tables urgently required by the application?

If you are familiar with at least one of the problems mentioned above, you should deal more intensively with the partitioning of large tables. This session, which deals with the basics of partitioning, will introduce solutions by the help of partitioning for all problems mentioned.
- Loading of data no longer takes hours but seconds
- Index and statistics maintenance are carried out in a fraction of the time
- Queries can run faster because they only search in the partitions that contain the data they are looking for.
