Hi!

What does it mean when someone says that a server is scalable or not
scalable?

What does it mean when someone says that a database is scalable or not
scalable?

Are these the same things? In other words, is "scalable" a legitimate
technical word or is it just a generic word people can apply to
anything, (i.e., "my car is scalable" or "my refrigerator is scalable.")


Thanks...
