What’s the difference between the concepts of scalability and elasticity?

Does scaling UP or Down means we are talking about elasticity? I mean, what’s the difference between these two concepts? Thanks

Hey Andre,

Elasticity is scaling to a temporary demand and scaling back down after the load returns to normal.

Scalability is the ability to scale out (more resources) or up (stronger resources) to meet a new permanent demand.
