Out of curiosity, are there standards in place for data storage naming above petabytes? i.e. What is the next step (or next two or three?!?) up?
As you may already know,
1KB = 1,024bytes 1MB = 1,024KB 1GB = 1,024MB 1TB (terabyte) = 1,024GB 1PB (petabyte) = 1,024TBNow if a petabyte is nto enough for you, we can go farther!!!
1 Exabyte = 1,024 petabytes 1 Zettabyte = 1,024 exabytesand finally
1 Yottabyte = 1,024 zettabytes
