CAN DO IN YOTTABYTES
Put it in terms of DVDs, a yottabyte would require trillion of them. A gegobyte is 10 to the power of And to drive home the influx of data, Gupta offered the following stats although in the case of CERN, the SKA telescope and maybe the jet engine sensors, not all of that data needs to be stored :.
Y is for yottabyte

And how many humans are born on this planet every day? Your industry partner in emerging technology research Learn More. And to drive home the influx of data, Gupta offered the following stats although in the case of CERN, the SKA telescope and maybe the jet engine sensors, not all of that data needs to be stored : On YouTube, 72 hours of video are uploaded per minute, translating to a terabyte every four minutes.
Today, flash drives and hard drives are growing to accommodate our ever-expanding collection of files. With growing frequency, we're saving more of our data on the cloud and tapping into it to play music or watch videos, relying on Google's email servers and other services offered by a variety of Internet companies to store everything for us. These companies are constructing enormous data centers and tucking them away in remote regions of North Carolina and Oregon.
The centers are hidden from view so that they're less vulnerable to attacks -- and so the public can't see how they suck up huge amounts of electricity. Just how big are they? How much physical space do our digital files take up? Infographics are always a bit of a hodgepodge of statistics culled from a variety of sources.
