I'm implementing Partitioning for the first time in SQL Server 2008r2. I've several large tables that I am partitioning.
My main question is should I use the same Partition Scheme and Function for all these tables, or should I create multiple Partition Scheme's and Functions?
When I move older data to an different file group will having separate Scheme's and Functions make moving the data easier?
And what are some things that should consider when making this decision?
