We have all been there at one time or another. You are waiting for a page to load, a photo to appear or an application to respond. The little circle just keeps rotating but nothing ever appears. You jiggle the mouse – as if that ever helps – and wait some more. Is there a problem with the clouds where all your precious data is stored? Or have they become like the mall at Christmas time and are just too full and busy to be efficient?

This interesting information was found on Redmond Mag in their article, “The Great Cloud Bottleneck: How Capacity Issues Can Kill Your Cloud Project.” Internet clogging was around long before the cloud. Multimedia functions have stressed the networks from the beginning. So what is the solution? Are we blaming big data again?
