What units of measurement are used for data storage?
Data storage is also called storage or memory, it refers to computer components and recording media that retain digital data used for computing.
Thus, for example, documents and images are measured in bytes or kilobytes, pen drives (USB) are measured in megabytes, while hard drives are measured in terms of gigabytes or terabytes.
Below is a list of all the standard units of measurement used for data storage:
1 bit (b) = un dígito binario (0 or 1)
1 byte (B) = 8 bits
1 kilobytes (KB) = 1.024 bytes = 1,000 bytes
1 megabyte (MB) = 1,024 KB = 1,000,000 bytes
1 gigabyte (GB) = 1.024 MB = 1,000,000,000 bytes
1 terabyte (TB) = 1.024 GB = 1,000,000,000,000 bytes
1 petabyte (PB) = 1.024 TB = 1,000,000,000,000,000 bytes
1 Exabyte (EB) = 1.024 PB = 1,000,000,000,000,000,000 bytes
zettabyte (ZB) = 1.024 EB = 1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 bytes
yottabyte (YB) = 1.024 YB = 1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 bytes
