Forecasting data center and cloud traffic growth
The Cisco Global Cloud Index (GCI) was developed to estimate worldwide data center and cloud-based traffic growth and trends. If the second annual Cisco GCI is any indication, the two are not mutually exclusive. Growth is the trend.

Businesses and organizations are realizing the necessity of cloud computing, and by 2016, the amount of global data center traffic will quadruple. IT must act now in order to prevent this heavy traffic prediction from turning into a jam.
