In IT, scalability describes the performance and complexity of programmes. In other words, the behaviour of software or algorithms in terms of resource requirements as the amount of input increases. A software is ?well scalable? if, for example, it manages with ten times the performance with approximately ten times the resources. A ?poorly scalable? software would need ten times as much at twice the load and fail at more load.

Scalability comes up in this blog.
