Partitioning databases with ASE 15 improves system availability and speeds up common maintenance tasks by allowing you to divide tables into smaller partitions that are separately accessed and managed. Separate queries and processes can concurrently access different data partitions reducing database contention in systems with concurrent users or running routine database maintenance.
- Decrease maintenance time and costs - control costs by reducing the time and effort required to run maintainance tasks against the database
- Increase data availability ? operations are isolated to specific partitions of data enabling the bulk of your data to remain available for applications
