PostgreSQL Table Partitioning Part I – Implementation Using Inheritance

In earlier PostgreSQL versions, it was not possible to declare table partitions syntactically. Partitioning can be implemented using table inheritance. The inheritance approach involves creating a single parent table and multiple child tables (aka. Partitions) to hold data in each partition range.

In this post, I’ll discuss the implementation of table partitions using inheritance. However before proceeding, let’s first understand why do we need partitioning? Continue reading “PostgreSQL Table Partitioning Part I – Implementation Using Inheritance”

Hello world….once again

package main

import "fmt"

func main() {
    fmt.Println("hello world (^-^*)/")

This is continuation to my SQL Server blog on MSDN. With this blog post, I intend to help fellow database engineers community using PostgreSQL / SQL Server as a Database Platform, with occasional other stuff thrown in related to other RDBMS platforms and their respective integration issues. Thanks to my wife who’d been pestering me to blog for a year or so.

I’ve spent more than a decade working on various different RDBMS platforms including PostgreSQL, SQL Server, Oracle, MySQL. My current focus area is PostgreSQL and it’s implementation in a large enterprise landscape overcoming challenges of scale, manageability and automation.

Thanks for your time reading and I hope all my effort will help (or at least entertain) you at many levels. I would really appreciate if you could let me know what you think about it, good or bad. I always appreciate feedback 🙂

Sincere Thanks!
