-- (a China (12 zettabyte
is equal to a sextillion bytes, or a trillion gigabytes).
This causes an unprecedented demand for capacity, with Cisco forecasting an increase in annual global IP traffic to more than a Zettabyte
one thousand billion Gigabytes already in 2016 , Sabbagh said.
Cisco have announced the results of the annual Cisco[R] Visual Networking Index (VNI) Forecast, 2009-2014, which projects that global Internet traffic will increase more than fourfold to 767 exabytes, or more than 3/4 of a Zettabyte
, by 2014.
Networking specialist Cisco estimates that yearly traffic will increase at an average compound rate of 40 per cent to exceed two-thirds of a zettabyte
(one sextillion bytes) within the next four years, with the Middle East and Africa region expected to post the fastest growth at 51 per cent.
A recent study by Cisco estimates that 'Annual global IP traffic will surpass the zettabyte
[that's 21 zeros] threshold [1.
Cisco offers other predictions, among them; that "global internet traffic will increase more than fourfold to 767 exabytes, or more than three-quarters of a zettabyte
According to the June 2011 IDC iView study, "Extracting Value from Chaos," the volume of information created globally exceeded 1 zettabyte
or 1 trillion gigabytes.
IDC says the world generated more than one zettabyte
(ZB), or one million petabytes, of data in 2010.

Virtualization in homes is long overdue and soon we will be in the Zettabyte
and Zettaflop cloud era that would lead us to a decentralized cloud starting with home," said ATM Shafiqul Khalid Chief Technology Officer of Pcxen system.
