Q

Beyond petabytes

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) = 1,024TB 
Now if a petabyte is nto enough for you, we can go farther!!!
1 Exabyte = 1,024 petabytes
1 Zettabyte = 1,024 exabytes 
and finally
1 Yottabyte = 1,024 zettabytes
