The byte scale from 1 byte to 1 Monoicosebyte

December 3, 2010 by: Anthony Damasco

While browsing through I came across this info graphic that puts perspective on just how big a Petabyte is. I found it interesting. For those of you who are not familiar with the way the “byte scale” works, here is the break down:

Byte – A group of binary digits stored and operated upon as a unit. Most often the term refers to 8-bit units or characters.

The Scale:
kilobyte =1024 bytes
megabyte = 1024 kilobytes
gigabyte = 1024 megabytes
terabyte  = 1024 gigabytes
petabtye = 1024 terabytes
exabyte = 1024 petabytes
zettabyte =1024 exabytes
yottabyte = 1024 zettabyte
Xenottabyte = 1024 Yottabytes
Shilentnobyte = 1024 Xenottabytes
Domegemegrottebyte = 1024 Shilentnobytes
Icosebyte = 1024 Domegemegrottebytes
Monoicosebyte = 1024 Icosebyte

Monoicosebyte = 1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 bytes

Anyway – Keep this in mind when you check how huge a petabyte is in my image below, and then think about where the petabyte is on my scale here.
