# How far do you know about data storage memory units?

The basic memory unit used in computer data storage is called a bit. A Bit is a value of either a 0 or 1. 8 Bits is equal to 1 Byte. The term byte was coined by Werner Buchholz in July 1956.

I am quite sure you might have heard about memory units like MB (mega byte), GB (giga byte) and TB (tera byte) but have you heard about Petabyte, Exabyte, Zettabyte and Yottabyte? There are many more data storage units such as Brontobyte, Geopbyte, Saganbyte etc. Have a look at the unit conversion table below to know how these data storage units are calculated.

### Memory Conversion Units

• 1 Bit = Binary Digit
• 8 Bits = 1 Byte
• 1024 Bytes = 1 Kilobyte (KB)
• 1024 Kilobytes = 1 Megabyte (MB)
• 1024 Megabytes = 1 Gigabyte (GB)
• 1024 Gigabytes = 1 Terabyte (TB)
• 1024 Terabytes = 1 Petabyte
• 1024 Petabytes = 1 Exabyte
• 1024 Exabytes = 1 Zettabyte
• 1024 Zettabytes = 1 Yottabyte
• 1024Yottabytes = 1 Brontobyte
• 1024 Brontobytes = 1 Geopbyte
• 1024 Geopbyte = 1 Saganbyte
• 1024 Saganbyte = 1 Pijabyte
• 1 Alphabyte = 1024 Pijabyte
• 1 Kryatbyte = 1024 Alphabyte
• 1 Amosbyte = 1024 Kryatbyte
• 1 Pectrolbyte = 1024 Amosbyte
• 1 Bolgerbyte = 1024 Pectrolbyte
• 1 Sambobyte = 1024 Bolgerbyte
• 1 Quesabyte = 1024 Sambobyte
• 1 Kinsabyte = 1024 Quesabyte
• 1 Rutherbyte = 1024 Kinsabyte
• 1 Dubnibyte = 1024 Rutherbyte
• 1 Seaborgbyte = 1024 Dubnibyte
• 1 Bohrbyte = 1024 Seaborgbyte
• 1 Hassiubyte = 1024 Bohrbyte
• 1 Meitnerbyte = 1024 Hassiubyte
• 1 Darmstadbyte = 1024 Meitnerbyte
• 1 Roentbyte = 1024 Darmstadbyte
• 1 Coperbyte = 1024 Roentbyte
