MySQL 5.1 New Features: MySQL Partitions
by Jon Stephens and Peter Gulutzan

Partitioning is a way of pre-organizing table storage. You can say "some of the table's rows will go here, some will go there, still others will go to to still other places". Often, depending on the storage engine, the effect is to spread the table's rows over different files or even different disks.

We - one of the folks who write the MySQL Reference Manual and one of the folks who test new features - will try to touch on everything that we, or beta testers, or participants in the the MySQL forums, have ever considered is worth touching on about partitioning. Nevertheless we won't repeat what's already in the MySQL Reference Manual when we can't think of a different way to say it.

We'll show examples and test results that we ran with the version that's latest at the time we're writing this - MySQL 5.1.12 BETA.
