What is a yottabyte?
What is a yottabyte?
  • Web development

We tend to work with megabytes and gigabytes on a daily basis. The yottabyte, however – while the largest unit for data volumes – is less well-known. But this unit of information gives an exciting insight into how much data is in circulation worldwide. We’ll explain the size of a yottabyte and how it is converted into other units for storage capacity.

What is a terabyte?
What is a terabyte?
  • Web development

When you purchase a hard drive, you’ll likely come across the term terabyte which refers to the data quantity common storage media can back up. But the designation raises the question of “how large is a terabyte anyway”? Find out more about this unit of information, about the difference between terabytes and terabits, and how it can be converted into other units.

What is a petabyte?
Petabyte – what is it?
  • Web development

The byte is a unit of information that makes it easy to specify the storage capacity of data carriers. Large units such as petabytes are now commonly used to express growing data volumes globally in simple figures. But what is their capacity? We compare petabytes with known quantities such as megabytes or gigabytes and explain how their conversion works.

What is a nibble?
Nibble meaning – what is it?
  • Web development

While the term “nibble” is still largely unknown, units of information such as gigabyte and megabyte are used frequently. But what amount of data do these terms actually describe? To answer this question, we must understand the meaning of smaller units such as bits, bytes, and the nibble. Find out more about these units of information and how their conversion works.

What is a kilobyte?
Kilobyte – the unit of information explained
  • Web development

What is bigger: a KB or a MB? And how large is a kilobyte really? That’s a question most digital media users will have asked at some point. Sending files as email attachments, for example, requires an understanding of the kilobyte. But how is this information unit structured and how do you convert it to other units?

  • Web development

Whether you’re working with hard drives, computers, or smartphones - digital applications and storage devices indicate their capacities in bytes. But what is a byte and why do we need it? In short: The byte is the smallest quantity of data and consists of 8 bits. Since computers store a lot of data, bytes can be converted into larger units like megabytes and terabytes.

Audit compliance
Audit compliance: Definition and what it means for the cloud
  • Online sales

Storing data in electronic form is part of daily life. However, the more confidential the data being stored is, the more important security provisions become. So-called audit compliance, which already applies to documents of a commercial or tax-related nature, is playing an increasingly important role in the digital enterprise of the future.

What is a gigabyte?
Gigabyte – an explanation of the data storage unit
  • Web development

Gigabyte (GB for short) is a unit of storage capacity encountered frequently when working with digital technologies. It is used to indicate the storage capacity of hardware, the size of a file, or the data volume available for mobile surfing on a chosen network. But how many megabytes are in a gigabyte and what is the difference between a gigabyte and a gibibyte?

What is an exabyte?
Exabyte – one trillion bytes
  • Web development

Simply explained: an exabyte is equal to one trillion bytes. But few people can actually make sense of a file size this huge. It’s simply not enough to know that a byte consists of eight bits and roughly corresponds to a letter. One thing is for sure, global, monthly data volumes now exceed 174 exabytes and this number is expected to double by 2022. That’s why it’s worth keeping an eye on the...

What is a brontobyte?
Brontobyte: The data quantity of the future
  • Web development

The brontobyte - officially this quantity of data doesn’t even exist. In short, the brontobyte is big data - 1 brontobyte is equivalent to 10bytes. Such a huge quantity of data is near incomprehensible and probably won’t become relevant for our daily lives for a very long time. But for tech giants, it’s only a matter of time until we reach the era of the brontobyte. Keep reading to find out what...
