Scaling applications

Quickbase is designed for horizontal scaling of the platform and vertical scaling of applications. Vertical scaling of your application has many dimensions.


The physical hardware is constantly refreshed to new hardware to keep applications running fast.

Runtime engine

New and existing customer applications automatically get the benefit of speed improvements made to the runtime engine.

Application architecture

Applications are automatically simplified and streamlined to minimize unnecessary computation. This includes

  • Purging or archiving unused data
  • Cleaning up obsolete or unused fields
  • Setting field defaults like searchable fields, default sort, default columns accordingly
  • Optimizing UI pages to move expensive infrequently used data behind links or tabs
