Scalability of systems performance becomes a challenge for modern digital systems. Achievement of system ability to complete wide range of tasks in terms of computational performance and effective use of resources require substantial research. Significant efforts are directed towards design of large scale hardware systems. However resolving scalable tasks require also scalable software capable of completion both many small simple tasks and large complex tasks using effectively available hardware, energy and time. This article discusses factors for successful search and optimisation in particular search methods scalability. Discussion is illustrated with an overview of publications.
