Before the advent of the Internet and the rise in availability of distributed, scalable computing resources, efficient use of computing resources was mandatory. When faced with the scale of the Internet, efficiency concerns gave way to scalability. As the access to virtually unlimited resources has never been easier, scaling has become the solution to almost every performance-related requirement, with efficiency often being neglected.

Times are changing however. Scaling resources without considering efficiency is ultimately not sustainable. This opens the door to revisiting efficiency. This time around, we are talking about the efficiency of scalable applications. Download the white paper to learn more.
