Defining Scalability

Posted November 13, 2007

Jamie Flourney has posted an excellent article about what "scalable" means.  I've heard so many bad definitions it makes me want to pull my hair out, but he nails it with the statement:

Language performance does not affect whether an application scales or not. It is a coefficient to the cost of capacity.
Succinct and to the point -- and perfectly accurate.
