Interval Partitioning

This new partitioning strategy fully automates the partition creation for range. In other words, new partitions will be created when they are needed. By defining the interval criteria, the database knows when to create new partitions for new or modified data. Managing the creation of new partitions can be a cumbersome and highly repetitive task.

Interval partitioning automates this operation by creating partitions on-demand.
