Kendra Little has an interesting solution to when you need to swap out an old table for a new version:
This pattern works in SQL Server 2014 and higher. And it even works in Standard Edition of 2014.
Some folks will see the word ‘Switch’ in this pattern and assume the pattern that I’m suggesting is Enterprise Edition only for versions before SQL Server 2016 SP1.
However, oddly enough, you can use partition switching even in Standard Edition, as long as the tables only have one partition.
And all rowstore tables have at least one partition! That happens automagically when you create a table.
