To improve Veeam ONE SQL database performance, partitioning can be used. Note, that SQL Server Enterprise Edition is required to use partitioning.
Do not deploy database partitioning if you use Always On Availability Groups on the SQL server.
Partitioned tables and indexes are created by two scripts. Before running the scripts, it is recommended to create a backup of Veeam ONE database. The scripts can be executed in any order. Before applying them, you will need to specify the following values:
1. Locate %UserName%
parameter in the script and specify DB admin (sa or any domain account that has full control permissions to Veeam ONE DB).
2. Locate %Path%
parameter and specify directory where database partitions will be created/stored.
3. If Veeam ONE database name is different from default, then change the name of the database (VeeamOne) in both scripts manually

SQL Server agent will have two maintenance jobs created:
The directory specified for database partitions will have files like this:
