Hi Experts,

Can someone give me some high-level direction on how to approach this?

I'm given a task to do these 2 things:
- 1. Separate customers data across multiple filegroups using table partition (based on CustomerID)
- 2. Archive customers data (using table partition if possible) (based on CreatedDate)

I have a very clear idea on how to do either 1 or 2, but not both. Is that even possible to partition on top of partition? If not, what's the best way to approach this?

Thanks,
Thanh

First you need to perform 1st then monthly job/manual intervention will move the data from partitioned table to destination table (partitioned or non- partitioned) , if you know both the step very well then whats the problem ?

Hi,

You can switch partitions if your idea allows this or TRANSFER the partition to other. PLease follow the following url for more details.
