Scalability, which refers to an ability to support increased loads with acceptable performance, is among the key issues in deciding on an architecture with its essential components, together with relationships between such components, as well as constraints on such components and relationships. As with just about any design, the architectural design space is potentially huge, if not infinite, while the quality of the final system to be implemented inevitably depends largely on various decisions… CONTINUE READING
