Zettabit (Zb)

The zettabit is a multiple of the unit bit for digital information or computer storage. The prefix zetta (symbol Z) is defined in the International System of Units (SI) as a multiplier of 1021 (1 sextillion, short scale), and therefore 1 zettabit = 1021 bits = 1000000000000000000000 bits = 1000 exabits. The zettabit has the unit symbol Zbit or Zb. The zettabit is closely related to the zebibit, a unit multiple derived from the binary prefix zebi of the same order of magnitude, which is equal to 270 bits = 1180591620717411303424 bits, or approximately 18% larger than the zettabit.

Zettabyte (ZB)

Abbreviated as ZB, a zettabyte is equal to 1,180,591,620,717,411,303,424 (270) bytes or 1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 (1021) bytes. The zettabyte is a multiple of the unit byte for digital information. The prefix zetta indicates multiplication by the seventh power of 1000 or 1021 in the International System of Units(SI). A zettabyte is one sextillion (one long scale trilliard) bytes. The unit symbol is ZB. 1 ZB = 10007 bytes = 1021 bytes = 1000000000000000000000 bytes = 1000 exabytes = 1 million petabytes = 1 billion terabytes = 1 trillion gigabytes. A related unit, the zebibyte (ZiB), using a binary prefix, is equal to 10247 bytes (approximately 1.181 ZB).   Do you Know :   GUID Partition Table (GPT) allows for a maximum disk and partition size of 7.02 zettabytes, or 5.946 zebibytes, when…
