partitioning vs many tables
Hi All, We are trying to devise schema in vertica for storing data for our application. There are a large number of publishers for that application and the confusion is whether to store the data in a single table and have partitioning based on publisher id or store each publisher data in a separate table. There are certain operations like delete , recovery et al which create locks on the entire table, hence data push might disrupt for everyone if the data is stored in a single table. However a single table is more easily manageable. Could someone throw some light on the pros and cons of each ? Thanks, Ravi.
