YOTTABYTE ME!

1 terabyte equals about 213, 4.7GB dvds. 213 dvds is approximately 30cm in length if stacked one on top of the other. to equal 1 yottabyte (1000 terabytes = 1 petabyte; 1000 petabytes = 1 exabyte; 1000 exabytes = 1 zettabyte; 1000 zettabytes = 1 yottabyte) would mean 213 trillion dvds or a distance of 300 million kilometers, the distance to the sun and back!

(213 trillion is about the number of cells in 2 human bodies. that being the case, each cell would store about 4.7GB of information or about 1500 pictures, most of these being taken up by the golgi apparatus)
