Blade Server Scalability

Cover
Scalability is defined as the ease with which a solution can grow as the need arises. An informal but good comparative example of what is and isn't scalable is the following: A bed sheet isn't scalable (it fits one size of mattress), whereas a rubber band stretches as far as you need (to a point). In short, scalability means the ability to grow or scale.

Many examples of scalability exist throughout a company's IT (information technology) infrastructure. The website must be designed so developers can easily add and adapt it as the number of visitors increase. After all, a website does no good if every time traffic increases by 50 percent, the entire website has to be redesigned from scratch. Similarly, enterprise applications are expected to scale well as the number of users increase. For example, an enterprise database is expected to perform equally well even as the number of tables and records increase significantly.
