Abstract

In this paper we examine different techniques which can be used to partition a database: horizontal, group horizontal, single vertical, physical vertical, group vertical, and mixed partitioning. We evaluate these techniques by examining eight properties which determine the behavior of database operations. For each property, we derive rankings of the partitioning techniques. These rankings can be used to help select the best partitioning technique for a database system. An approach to obtain the overall ranking is discussed. While no best partitioning approach exists for all environments, the information and discussions contained within this paper can be used by a database designer to aid in selecting the best technique for a target environment.
