By DatabaseJournal.com Staff

Partitioning of a database to optimize performance has been around for a long time.  Oracle first introduced partitioning in 1997.  With Oracle Database 11g, Release 2 partitioning is even easier.

The idea behind partitioning is to separate your data and store it based on a partitioning criteria.  By doing this you can separate your data on different storage devices.  This can help lead to having older data in your database, on cheaper storage media, and help with archiving of data.
