The growth of the cloud in recent years has been immense, to say the least.
A survey of CIOs in late 2013 by asset management firm Piper Jaffray found that annual growth in workloads for the public cloud versus on-premise computing workloads is expected to be 44% versus just 8.9%--a massive difference in the world of IT.
But that’s not all. Let’s have a look at some more numbers related to the growth of the cloud:
Looking at these numbers, a few things are clear: 1), the amount of global data center traffic coming from the cloud is already large, and is expected to grow immensely in scope by 2017, and 2), that increase in global data center traffic equates to a clear need for more space and more data centers worldwide.
