Performance vs Scalability

Performance:

Speed of the application in terms of single user ,

when you type http://www.yourdomain.com, the time taken to take the request and load the page with content

Scalability:

How easy is to add additional resources such as more CPU, more Memory for your application

If the application needs additional resource at very low frequency as the user load increases it is a scalable system
