## What is the biggest byte in the world?

- Kilobyte (1024 Bytes)
- Megabyte (1024 Kilobytes)
- Gigabyte (1,024 Megabytes, or 1,048,576 Kilobytes)
- Terabyte (1,024 Gigabytes)
- Petabyte (1,024 Terabytes, or 1,048,576 Gigabytes)
- Exabyte (1,024 Petabytes)
- Zettabyte (1,024 Exabytes)
- Yottabyte (1,204 Zettabytes, or 1,208,925,819,614,629,174,706,176 bytes)

## What is bigger than a petabyte?

A single terabyte is the equivalent of 1,024GB, or about 342,000 three-minute MP3s. Now we get into the bigger bytes. Next up is the petabyte. Then you get to the zettabyte, which is 1,000 times larger than an exabyte, which is 1 million petabytes.

## What is the byte scale?

A bit is a binary digit, the smallest increment of data on a computer. A kilobyte (KB) is 1,024 bytes, not one thousand bytes as might be expected, because computers use binary (base two) math, instead of a decimal (base ten) system. Computer storage and memory is often measured in megabytes (MB) and gigabytes (GB).

## How much is a Yottabyte?

The One Hundred Trillion Dollars Hard Drive. A yottabyte is one septillion bytes. To save all those bytes you need a data center as big as the states of Delaware and Rhode Island. It doesn’t seem like much, until they tell you the price tag: $100 trillion.

## Does a Yottabyte exist?

(A yottabyte is a septillion bytes—so large that no one has yet coined a term for the next higher magnitude.) Wired is referring to the fact that a yottabyte is the largest storage term we have, not that septillion is the highest numerical descriptor for a large figure in existence, if you were confused.

## Is there anything bigger than a Yottabyte?

As data gets bigger, what comes after a yottabyte? An exabyte of data is created on the Internet each day, which equates to 250 million DVDs worth of information. After a zettabyte comes yottabytes, which big data scientists use to talk about how much government data the NSA or FBI have on people altogther.

## What is a Brontobyte?

A brontobyte is a unit of data that represent a very large number of bytes. It is often compared to approximately 1000 yottabytes; the specific number being 1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 (1027) bytes.

## Is a Yottabyte the biggest?

As of 2010, no system has yet achieved one yottabyte of storage. In fact, the combined space of all the computer hard drives in the entire world does not amount to even one yottabyte. According to one study, all the world’s computers stored approximately 160 exabytes [exabyte = 1 billion gigabytes] in 2006.
