Does scalability means that the system can be changed in configuration ? without any effect to the existing system ..

The ability of the system to perform at the same level( or optimially ) with increasing load. For instance, from 5 users to 50, 500, 5000 etc. The load can also be expressed in terms of number of transactions.
