 +# Scalability ​
  
 +As the traffic to a service increases, design decisions made early become a more and more important factor affecting performance. You want your service to be scalable, to be able to handle a growing amount of traffic. ​

 +SOAP implementations can also be made scalable, but less of the architecture is explicitly designed for that purpose.
