DATA SIZE

                                                               DATA SIZE

                    ANY INDIVIDUAL 1 OR 0  =   BIT

                                         4 BITS  =  A NIBBLE

                                         8 BITS  = A Byte

                                              16 BITS  = A Word

                                        32 bits  = A Double Word

                            64 bits  = A Paragraph of Quad Word

        GIGA  =   1,073,741,824  a little more than 1 Billion

   GIGABIT = 1) Describing Data storage 1,024 Megabits

     2) Describing Data Transfer Rates 1,000,000,000 bits

  GIGABYTE  =

        1,073,741,824 BYTES   1 GB  = 1,024 Megabytes

  KILOBYTE  = 1,024 BYTES       

                        KILO STANDS FOR 1,000,

                  BUT NOT IN BINARY SYSTEM

   MEGA     =     1,048,576

                           MEGA= 1 MILLION,

                   BUT NOT IN BINARY SYSTEM  

MEGABYTE = 1,048,576 BYTES IN DATA STORAGE ( M OR MB )

             IN DATA TRANSFER RATES AS IN MBps,

                               1 Million BYTES

OCTET  = 8 BITS,

          EQUIVALENT TO A BYTE AS LONG AS

                       THE  BYTE IS ALSO 8 BITS  

TERABYTE  =     1,099,511,627,776 BYTES

                  NOTE A TRILLION IS 1,000,000,000,000

PETABYTE  =1,125,899,906,842,624 BYTES

                          EQUALS TO 1,024 TERABYTES

YOTTABYTE  =

                1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 BYTES

                      EQUALS TO 1,024 ZETTABYTES

EXABYTE    =     1,152,921,504,606,846,976 BYTES

                              EQUALS TO 1,024 PETABYTES

ZETTABYTE  = 1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 BYTES

                              EQUAL TO 1,024 EXABYTES
