Scalability

  • 0.12 Identify hardware components that give a network server the capability to scale up in order to meet the demands of a larger workload.

Scalability is the capability to “grow” a network server. Scalability is planned at the time of the purchase of the network server. If it is suspected or expected that the load on the network server will increase with time, it is best to buy a network server that is scalable.

Examples of scalability include the following:

  • The capability to easily install additional processors in the network server

  • The capability to easily add much more memory to the network server

  • The capability to easily add more disk drives to the network server chassis
