Partitioned File Support

The FairCom Server supports a unique feature known as Partitioned Files. A partitioned file logically appears to be one file (or more accurately one data file and its associated index files), but is actually a set of files whose contents are partitioned by the value of the partition key. Both the data files and index files are partitioned. This permits data with a defined range of values for the partition key to be rapidly purged or archived (instead of having to delete record-by-record each record within this range).

See Partitioned Files for details on this feature.
