It can handle large amounts of data and memory, and it can utilize multiple processors and threads to execute your queries and scripts faster and more efficiently. You can use the following features and techniques to improve the scalability and performance of your database applications:


Partitioned Views




Partitioned views are views that combine data from multiple tables that have the same structure and are distributed across different servers or databases. You can use partitioned views to create a logical partitioning of your data, which can improve the query performance and data availability. You can also use partitioned views to perform distributed queries across multiple servers or databases, which can increase the scalability and reliability of your database applications.


Indexed Views




Indexed views are views that have a clustered index on them, which physically stores the view data in a separate table. You can use indexed views to create a pre-computed summary of your data, which can improve the query performance and data consistency. You can also use indexed views to perform aggregations, joins, and calculations on your data, which can reduce the query complexity and resource consumption.


Distributed Partitioned Views




Distributed partitioned views are partitioned views that have a clustered index on them, which physically stores the view data in a separate table. You can use distributed partitioned views to combine the benefits of partitioned views and indexed views, which can enhance the scalability and performance of your database applications. You can also use distributed partitioned views to perform distributed queries across multiple servers or databases, which can increase the availability and reliability of your database applications.
