Scaling Out or Scaling Up?

Nati Shalom (Gigaspaces):

Today, with the availability of large multi-core and large memory systems, there are more cases where you might have a single machine that can cover your scalability and performance goals. And yet, there are several other factors to consider when choosing between the two options:

  1. Continuous Availability/Redundancy
  2. Cost/Performance Flexibility
  3. Continuous Upgrades
  4. Geographical Distribution

Very informative.
