  • Scalability <> Performance
  • Scalability is how your application behaves as the number of users increases
  • Performance is how your application behaves when there is just one user
  • Number of Requests Cost per Request
  • Load <> Stress
  • Load is how many simultaneous users your application can serve
  • Stress is how well your application behaves when resources become limited
