So, just in case you didn’t get the memo that data is growing exponentially, XO Communications published this neat infographic to make it crystal clear. I like to hang up a new infographic at my desk every week or so; this one wins the prize for this week.
Remember when a terabyte was a big deal? According to Cisco’s Visual Networking Index, the data transferred annually by the internet will surpass a zettabyte.
To put that in perspective, 1 ZB = 1000000000000000000000 bytes.
A couple of other fun facts pulled from the infographic below:
- 1 ZB would cover War And Peace 323 TRILLION times
- 1 ZB will store 2 BILLION years of music (that should be enough to get you through the work day, right?)
