Scalability refers to a characteristic of the cloud computing through which the increasing workload may be handled by rising in the proportion of the amount of resource capacity. It enables the architecture to give on demand resources in case the requirement is being raised by the traffic. However, the elasticity is being one of the characteristic offering the concept of commissioning and decommissioning of the large amount of resource capacity dynamically. It is determined by the speed throgh which the resources are coming on demand and the usage of the resources.
