Annual global IP traffic has increased fourfold in the past five years, and it will surpass the zettabyte threshold by 2017. In this Cisco® Visual Networking Index (VNI) paper, discover the details and methodology of this forecast.
"The number of vCPUs should be one of your most important considerations when sizing virtual machines. But getting the right balance — neither over-allocating nor under-allocating — is a challenge. You’ll need to select the number of vCPUs, the size of the virtual disk, the number of vNICs and the amount of memory. With all those variables, a little guidance is in order.

Service providers around the world share concerns about running out of bandwidth. Business challenges surrounding continued bandwidth growth, linked to video, mobility, and cloud applications, are significant. Service providers also report declining revenue from a cost-per-bit perspective, so not only does the network need to grow, it also needs to grow more cost effectively. The Cisco Virtual Networking Index™ (Cisco VNI™) predicts that over 50 billion devices will be connected over these networks by 2020. The network effects of the Internet of Things, LTE mobility, and mobile video are just beginning to be understood. In a world where mobile device network additions are growing four times faster than the population, and machine-to-machine (M2M) device network additions are growing five times faster than mobile device additions, this problem is clearly becoming highly important and requires a good solution.
