I am not sure what your purpose of your DB is, but if I recall correctly you
did something with session data in this big table. Perhaps for that purpose
the use of another database like one of the noSQL database is better.

I read some article shortly ago about a big site with a lot of trafic. They
migrated their session data to a noSQL DB (I believe MongoDB) because of the
nature of the data. They gained a lot of performance doing that.

The concept of these noSQL databases is not clear to me yet (I am not a DB
specialist) but I do read a lot about sites migrating parts to these kind of
database from a former relational database like Firebird. One of the
examples mentioned often is historical data that is moved to these noSQL

Perhaps you should take a look at that too.
