Performance vs Scalability

Performance and Scalability are two important key aspects of a system. 

 

Are they mutually exclusive or not?

It is kinda debatable.

 

Some people say “We can achieve high performance and scalability using Modern technology”.

 

How do we know if a system is suffering with performance problems?

Pause your reading... and give it a thought.

 

There could be two scenarios:

  • System is slow for a user (It is a Performance Problem)
  • System is slow for multiple users (It is a Scalability Problem)

 

So, a scalable service should serve more units of work and should handle large units of work when data size grows.
