What units of measurement are used for data storage?

Author cavsi Category: Networking Tags:

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

What are examples of Optical Media?

Optical media is a storage media that hold content in digital form on which information is written (encoded) and read (decoded) by using a laser device. A optical media usually is a flat, circular disc which encodes binary data (bits) on a special material , often aluminium, on one of its flat surfaces.

What is input/output or storage device?

An input/output device is also known as storage device. These computer devices preserve information for retrieval.

What is Computer Data Storage?

Computer data storage, computer memory, and often casually storage or memory refer to computer components, devices and recording media that retain digital data used for computing for some interval of time.

Computer data storage provides one of the core functions of the modern computer, that of information retention.
