- The terms computer scientists use to measure bytes in a device. Your computer has either megabytes or gigabytes worth of memory, and probably has gigabytes or terabytes worth of hard-drive space:
Kilobyte = 1 thousand bytes.
Megabyte = 1 million bytes.
Gigabyte = 1 billion bytes.
Terabyte = 1 trillion bytes.
1 Petabyte = 1,000 Terabytes
1 Exabyte = 1,000 Petabytes
1 Zettabyte = 1,000 Exabytes
1 Yottabyte = 1,000 Zettabytes (a 1 followed by 24 zeros -- 1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000)
The following link gives you a better idea of how insanely large a yottabyte is:
