Typically, scaling up is all about upgrading the RAM and/or processors in existing servers in order to achieve a higher level of performance. When upgrading your CPUs, you’ll want to upgrade your memory accordingly, as higher-end CPUs require more memory capacity to optimize compute capability.
When you’ve exhausted the performance potential of existing servers and/or need to move beyond a performance ceiling, scaling out is often the right approach. Essentially, scaling out allows you to scale infinitely (as long as you have the space and power supply to do so). When scaling out, you can always scale up in the future as your server workloads increase.
When making a long-term scale out investment, optimize your purchase by opting for servers with the latest technology. This gives you the flexibility to scale up in the future and add high performance memory and storage components as workloads increase.
