According to the Cisco Cloud Index, more than 50% of computing workloads in data centres will be cloud-based by 2014, and global cloud traffic will grow more than 12 times by 2015, to 1.6 zettabytes per year - the equivalent of over four days of business-class video for every person on Earth. Based on these trends, Cisco announced it has updated its switching portfolio with 100 Gigabit and 40 GE capabilities, the next speed limits for networking.
These new capabilities provide a holistic architectural approach across campus, data center and service provider environments, and give customers a significant advantage while addressing emerging trends like cloud, video, mobility, and the proliferation of 10 GE.
