Global Cloud Index: the Barometer of Traffic Growth

In the second annual Cisco Global Cloud Index 2011-2016, Cisco forecasts global data center traffic to grow fourfold — reaching a total of 6.6 zettabytes annually by 2016.

The company also predicts global cloud traffic, the fastest-growing component of data center traffic, to grow sixfold — a 44 percent combined annual growth rate CAGR — from 683 exabytes of annual traffic in 2011 to 4.3 zettabytes by 2016.

“As cloud traffic continues to proliferate in a new world of many clouds, the Cisco Global Cloud Index provides all cloud computing stakeholders with a very valuable barometer to make strategic, long-term planning decisions.
