We are finally at a point where it shouldn’t surprise you to see any company run almost all their workloads in a virtual environment, said analyst Zeus Kerravala.” “Once again, Cisco Relevant Products/Services is pushing out cloud Relevant Products/Services predictions. The company just released its third annual Global Cloud Index, which forecasts that global cloud traffic — the fastest growing component of data Relevant Products/Services center Relevant Products/Services traffic — is expected to quadruple in the next four years. If Cisco’s numbers hold up, that marks a 35 percent combined annual growth rate, from 1.2 zettabytes of annual traffic in 2012 to 5.3 zettabytes by 2017. By contrast, overall global data center traffic will grow threefold and reach a total of 7.7 zettabytes annually by 2017.”
