The article presents information about the scalability of storage systems. It discusses the factors, besides adding disk capacity, that are important for a storage array to be scalable. Vendors confuse the issue of scalability versus capacity when they do not provide enough information about the virtues of their products. Capacity and scalability requirements can be determined by simply asking if the applications function in a way that suits the business.
