Circular Tables and Optimized Primary Keys

May 20, 2021

Some use cases require data to be stored for a limited time.  Time series is one such use case where data is keyed using a timestamp.  Measurements may be collected from sensors at a high frequency, keyed and stored, retrieved later using the key, and then analyzed.  Due to the volume, some of this data…
