We all are familiar with what is a Gigabyte (GB) as currently as most of our portable hard disc, thumb rive, computer storage, email are available in Gigabyte storage.
So, do you know what are there beyond the Gigabyte?
For those, who don’t know what are there beyond the Gigabyte, this infograph taken from backblaze will definitely help you to understand more until the size of Yottabyte.
According to this Infograph,
1 Yottabyte = 1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 bytes
You can use this guide for conversions:
1000 GB = 1 Terabyte (TB)
1000 TB = 1 Petabyte (PB)
1000 PB = 1 Exabyte (EB)
1000 EB = 1 Zettabyte (ZB)
1000 ZB = 1 Yottabyte (YB)
In other words, a Yottabyte = 1,000,000,000,000,000 GB.
The National Security Agency (NSA) is forecasting it may need yottabytes of storage to keep all of its surveillance data by 2015, and it is surprised to let you know that 1 yottabyte may cost about 100 trillion dollars.
