SQL Server 2012 provides features to allow administrators to ensure that data is accessed efficiently, this includes the use of indexes, table and index partitions, and full-text search. Indexes in SQL Server 2012 database allow data to be accessed quickly using keys that are stored in a B-tree structure. Indexes need to be created and managed to ensure for the best database performance. SQL Server 2008 provides table and index partitioning to allow data to be stored across multiple filegroups within a database. This makes tables and indexes that contain large amounts of data more manageable. Partitions in the database may need to be split to allow for more data to be stored, or data from one partition may need to be moved to another partition. SQL Server's full-text search component can be implemented to ensure that specific data is returned based on search words and phrases.
