What is Scalability?

Scalability concerns the ability of a cloud system to scale, and the cost and performance implications of doing so. As any cloud system is made up of a multitude of components, cloud scalability raises two questions:

2. If the size of a system is doubled, for example, does that mean the cost of running it (technical or otherwise) doubles, less than doubles, or more than doubles?

Scalability issues thus result in a maximum size and an optimum size (where the cost of providing service is lowest).
