The Cisco Cloud Index covers three crucial areas focused on data center and cloud traffic trends and next-generation service or application adoption. They include:

  • Data center and cloud traffic forecast, which offers projections from 2010-2015 on global data center and cloud traffic rates
  • Workload transition, which provides 2010-2015 projections for workloads* moving from traditional IT to cloud-based architectures
  • Cloud readiness**, which provides regional statistics on broadband adoption as a precursor for cloud services

*Workload is defined as an independent service or collection of code that can be executed.

** Cloud readiness compares average global network speeds and latencies (consumer and business) to assess each region's ability to support a sample set of cloud services.
