While this dramatic growth occurs, projections call for the cloud to account for nearly two-thirds of data center traffic and for cloud-based workloads to quadruple over traditional servers. That adds another element to the picture: changing traffic patterns. Under a cloud model, a university, for example, can build its network to handle average traffic volumes but then offload data on heavier trafficked days to a public cloud service when demand dictates, such as when itís time to register for the next semester of classes.
