Hi Guys,

I am working in the Cloud domain for a long time. But recently, I am confused between the Elasticity and Scalability terms. Can anyone explain me with simple words?

Hi@akhtar,

These two terms are sound similar. But they have different meanings in the Cloud domain. Cloud Elasticity is a tactical resource allocation operation. It provides the necessary resources required for the current task and handles varying loads for short periods.

Whereas Cloud Scalability is a strategic resource allocation operation. Scalability handles the increase and decrease of resources according to the system's workload demands.
