    Hi Kumar,

    A non-partitioned table cannot store more than 2 billion rows. By using partitioning, this limit may overcome by distributing the rows to several partitions. Please note, each partition must not contain more than 2 billion rows.

    Partitioning is typically used in distributed landscapes but only for column store tables. But it may also be beneficial for single-host systems.

    Hi Kumar,

    There had been a discussion on the same topic in this forum earlier.

    It is the number of records (rows) in the table. It is about horizontal partitioning of the data values.

    Regards,

    Hello Kumar,

    Two billion row limit is nothing but the records entry in the particular tables.

    Like in Oracle we said tuple and in SAP HANA its consider as a row.
