Database scalability strategy ?

Hi, I would like to know what is the strategy for database scalability on sap cloud platform.

My team has an application that we want to provide to a very large amount of users. that application use Postgres,

My understanding is that the application can be scaled as much as we want but the database is tied to a plan (small medium, large etc..)

After doing some performance test, we find that even the largest plan for the Postgres database quickly become a bottleneck with over 100 concurrent users. It does not matter how much we scale our application, the database simply cannot process a large amount of user, the connection pool is too small and make all instances of the application wait for a connection. I would like to know what strategy or recommendation we could use to also be able to scale database instances.
