Are you ready for the explosion of data traffic?

10/24/2012 | Data centers |

One of the biggest challenges facing many organisations over the coming years will be how they handle the vastly increased amount of information traffic they will be expected to deal with. You've probably noticed in your personal browsing that you use a lot more data than in the past, with improvements in broadband speeds allowing internet users quicker access to streaming video, music and online gaming, among other activities. This is also affecting business users, as the amount of information being passed through data centers also grows. In fact, new research from Cisco released this week has estimated global data center traffic is set to grow fourfold over the next four years, reaching 6.6 zettabytes annually by 2016.

To put this into context, this could be used for 92 trillion hours of streaming music, or seven trillion hours of high-definition video streaming - the equivalent of every person on the planet watching a two and a half hour movie online every day. Cisco explained the vast majority of traffic is not the result of activities by end users, but comes from data center processes that are invisible to individuals. Three-quarters of traffic is forecast to remain within the data center and be generated by storage, production and development data. As a result of this, you're going to need to make sure your data center connections and internal networks are robust and able to be scaled up to cope with the increased traffic. By choosing to build your own dedicated server using the options available from, you can achieve this and ensure your servers meet your exact needs.

Because there are no contracts to lock you into long-term commitments, you can also quickly upgrade your solutions as and when you need them without losing any of your data or suffering downtime. Solutions such as bandwidth pooling also give you the flexibility to make the most of your servers and cope with increased traffic on certain devices.
