    Too bad those bigass drives are virtually useless as far as performance goes (would you really wanna be copying 256TB back and forth at 30Mbytes/sec (not to mention what would happen if u had a CRC failure :p)

    On a more serious note, if you're interested in a mass storage for archival purposes, look into either setting up a RAID (either 0- or 5- or one of them funky "+" ones) or better yet, get a SAN/NAS :)

    I found on Google: one NANObyte is 1,000 (or 1024) yottabytes. Now go bust your teacher's ass!

    ofcourse there is bigger stuff then yottabyte, there is one after that

    A brontobyte is 1024 yottabytes which is about 1.24 * 10^27 bytes.
