Here is how the dictionary defines scalability:
“The ability of something, especially a computer system, to adapt to increased demands.”
That’s a great working definition
The definition explains that the more data (of strain) you put on a system without the appropriate capacity the system will not work to capacity. (Furthermore) The problem with scalability as it pertains to an automated environment is the above definition is only one-third of the overall scope, which is “network” scalability. I have created a way to analyze each of the three aspects, which we will call “disciplines” as it relates to automation. I am hosting a webinar later today and I will give you a workable test you can administer to ensure that each discipline will not be a negative factor in your world.
- Network Scalability – this is the classic we all know
- Code Scalability – this one will bite you if you are not careful
- Process Scalability – highly trained pros are needed here
Join me this afternoon for a description of each how a test you can run yourself to find out how “scalable” your organization/processes are.
