For those of you who haven't had the pleasure:
To use partitioning, you have to pay for the Enterprise Edition of the database at $40,000 per CPU and then pay an additional $10,000 for the partitioning option. That is a lot of money if all I really need is SE One (at $5,000 per CPU) with Partitioning. Unfortunately, that is not an option.As we used to shout at band camp, "$10,000? WHAT A SCREW!" Same thing goes for the Diagnostic Pack, one of the greatest inventions of mankind.
I'd at least settle for making partitioning included in EE and a pay-for-play option in SE. Of course, then who would pay for all of this?
