Zettabytes have surpassed petabytes as the largest unit of digital measurement. One zettabyte is the same as a million petabytes. This shows just how much this area is growing with all these new inventions, etc.

Man, I'm still working in gigabytes. I've never even heard of petabytes before. And now they've already got another one? Yeesh.

Yup. They got terabytes, petabytes, and now Zettabytes.

I didn't even know that they had something after terabytes. Man, the things you learn.

I've seen hard drives for sale using terabytes. Actually getting one never crossed my mind though. It will be a long time before I need that much storage space. I can't imagine using up a petabyte. That must be a massive amount of information flow.
