Table partitioning is a very handy feature supported by several databases, including PostgreSQL, MySQL, Oracle, and YugabyteDB. This feature is useful when you need to split a large table into smaller independent pieces called partitioned tables or partitions. If you’re not familiar with this feature yet, consider the following simple example.
Let’s pretend you develop an application that automates operations for a large pizza chain. Your database schema has a PizzaOrders table that tracks the order’s progress.
