A system is called scalable if it manages to take additional users and requests without losing any noticeable performance. Scaling a data system involves significant movement and replication of data within a cluster. This can put considerable load on a system that is already running hot, affecting the service experience.

Some of the topics that I would touch upon include:

  • Replication
  • Data distribution
  • Load balancing
  • Cluster management
  • Client Data
  • Capacity Management
  • Tuning
