An Introduction to Oracle Partitioning March 15, 2007

Posted by Muhammad Habib in Oracle General.

Oracle partitioning makes it easier and faster to manage any amount of data. Just as a bookstore organizes its books on shelves by subject area, partitioning allows you to organize your database to simplify administration and improve performance.

Although your database may have twice as much data next year as it does today, end-users will not tolerate it if their applications are running twice as slow. Partitioning is a feature that allows a database to scale for very large datasets while maintaining consistent performance, without unduly increasing administrative or hardware resources.

Oracle partitioning enables a “divide and conquer” technique for managing the large tables in the database, especially as those tables grow.
