2607686 - Which DBMSs support data lifecycle objects in SAP PD?


  • A lifecycle allows you to model the movement of data from expensive, rapid storage, through various forms of cheaper slower storage as the data ages and access requirements diminish. The period during which data remain in each kind of storage are modeled as phases, which are associated with tablespaces.
  • You can attach any number of tables to a lifecycle, and create multiple lifecycles to provide different speeds and/or methods for data aging.
  • Each table can only be associated with one lifecycle. A lifecycle can be age-based or access-based.
