We have a vendor application that creates a new database monthly for only few tables. Vendor doesn't have solution. Is there any other way besides partitioning as partitioning require enterprise version? Any recommendation?

Why are separate tables or databases needed? How much data is generated in a month? –  Aaron Bertrand Feb 8 '12 at 23:35
    
I have supported instance that had this. It was some financial forecasting software. Usually after the quarter financials were processed those dbs were dropped. –  Shawn Melton Feb 9 '12 at 0:39

I do not fully understand your question : do you mean a new database is created each month ? What is the data load ? Why would you need partitioning ? –  nopol Feb 9 '12 at 8:58
