Thanks Josh, I'll check out the namespace concept.

(I was referring to object partitioning. For instance, if I have a huge
table with US counties as my partition key, I could create partitions
within the same table based on the partition key (a US county for
example). When querying, the engine will access the partition instead of
the whole table to get the result set. This is provided in Oracle DB EE.
So, I was wondering whether I can do similar thing in PostgreSQL since
we're exploring PostgreSQL)

We support tablespaces but not table partitioning. You can get around
this by using namespaces and unions however.
