How Informed you are About Storage Memory Capacity Advancements ?!

Vintage IBM Hard disk

Are you able to recognize the hardware  in  the above pic? Well, though it might look like a blending machine it’s not that actually. In fact its the vintage IBM 1GB hard disk which we used to store data in early 1980s. With technology advancement we can in present store data even on thumb sized memory cards. But our lust for more storage space has brought us from the rare 1 GB giant  storage to present 1 TB consumer storage devices. What comes after Terabyte?

Lets start with the quite common unit Gigabytes. After gigabyte comes terabyte and we know that its 1000 GB that equals 1 TB. Given below are the rest of the storage memory advancements.

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)

Can you imagine or picturize how huge Yottabyte would be. Here is an info graphic released by Blackblaze to promote their data storage solutions citing that National Security Agency (NSA)  would soon need 1 Yottabyte storage space to store all their secret data collected over years.
