Greg recently designed a new IT architecture that is able to respond to both increases and decreases in demand by adding and removing resources. What term best describes this environment?
Correct Answer: B
Elasticity is the ability to both add and release resources as demand changes. Scalability is only the ability to add resources. While this system is both scalable and elastic, the term elasticity best describes it because it covers both activities. There is no indication in the scenario that the system is redundant or resilient.
