    Particular or distinct.

    That is, "... would not address the vertical scalability unless they are peculiar to the application"

    means

    "... would not address the vertical scalability unless the application is particularly designed to provide for vertical scalability".

    In that context it would mean "different" from the others.

    One of the definitions of peculiar: strange or odd; unusual

    So, in that claim, providers would not react to the vertical scalability unless they found something about the application they found out of the ordinary, or "peculiar", requiring or justifying further investigation.

    that's slang so which you will decrease fee it quite. it quite is agreeing with the 'he's very pompous'. isn't he purely skill sure, he's, isn't he? The purely would not have a meaning of its very own.
