Scalability

How do you size your on-site or cloud infrastructure to ensure the online whiteboard is running smoothly and can handle peak usage? How to make sure you don't oversize the environment and prevent high infrastructure costs?

We designed Collaboard as an auto-scalable solution that grows with the number of users and scales down when not used.
