Which do you prefer ? 1000 Terabyte or 1 Yottabyte ? You maybe think that 1000 Terabyte is bigger than 1 Yottabyte, but wait !!! Actually, 1000 Terabyte isn’t any near as 1 Yottabyte. In statistics, 1 Yottabyte is equal to 1 trillion Terabyte !!!!

You maybe awkward hearing Yottabyte. You used to hear Kilobyte, Megabyte, Gigabyte in daily computer storage. Actually, there are still many multiple bytes name out there, like exabyte, petabyte,etc. They usually don’t fit because they are to large to fit in the naming. The word Gigabyte, Megabyte, often used in the naming because they fit in the daily computer storage.
