The Partitioning feature in PostgreSQL is not something new. But it has matured over several years, release after release, especially the last 3 releases. The evolutionary nature (small changes in each version) is often overlooked by users. These small changes resulted in a build-up of a powerful Partitioning in PostgreSQL new versions. Now it is considered capable of even replacing the world's biggest database software in terms of market share even in Data Warehouses. Gradual evolution leads to no big announcements. So surprisingly very fewer users are still moved to native partitioning.

This talk gives a detailed look at
1. The birth of Native Partitioning and features.
2. How PostgreSQL 11 addressed some of the missing pieces.
3. How PostgreSQL 12 made a dramatic improvement in usability
4. 4. PostgreSQL 13 and ready to take on giants

This presentation is expected to create enthusiasm in the audience to drive towards one of the most powerful features in PostgreSQL.
