Whats PB and EB stand for?
kelobyte, megabyte, gigabyte, terabyte, ?, ?
Petabyte and Exabyte.
PB = Peanut Butter, like PB&J.
EB = extra butter, like what you put on toast.
Nah, lol. Pyvnetrvne is right.
what comes after the zettabyte???
wikipedia is your best friend ( sorry for quoting you Phillip )
Do we even have anything above Terrabytes? I mean like, not the names, but do we even have 100,000 GB? I thought that the biggest was a Terrabyte, I knew about the rest, but isn't that as far as we've gotten? If so, why do we have all these names above Terrabyte?
there are 750Gb single HD's around (havnt seen any bigger yet.) so i gues in serve app's you go over the 100 Tb,.. so i think so
Edit: but ofcourse thats no single disk
Thats a Terrabyte external hard drive
isnt 8mb cache a bit low for a 1Tb disk tough?
That will take a long time...
Get 2 of them and a 1TB file and try and copy it from one of them to the other, that would take ages.
I wasnt sure.. it suste seemed few, since 80Gb disks already have 8Mb cache.
i dont know much about HDD's tough
Inside it's two 500GB drives RAIDed together.
They're used often in theoretical maximums, server storage, etc... Aside from that, the prefixes aren't unique to computers, and are used in general mathematics as well as other fields:
Thats 1TB on 1 disk I think but no one would ever want that on their desk, I think its for things like emdia buisnesses that need lots of space.
That one's got 4 250GB hard disks inside it
lol im not very smart but im sure i read it
I installed one of these DVD Jukeboxes last week, with the Flipper option that enables it to do doublesided DVDs.
It holds 700 DVDs (double sides) @ 9.4GB ea = 6.5TB
well... a oversized dvd player isnt a HDD tough pretty cool nevertheless
Because data storage is based off of the metric system.
Separate names with a comma.
