Harddisk (1 Yottabytes)

NSA is building an indoor area of ​​92,903 m2 as a storage hard drive and costs about 2 billion dollars. The plan of this place will be able to store data for a Yottabytes predicted will be realized in 2015. Well, certainly on the right Yottabytes ask? How much does a Yottabytes it?

– 1 Terabyte (TB) = 1,000 Gigabytes (GB)
– 1 Petabyte (PB) = 1 Million Gigabytes (GB)
– 1 Exabyte (EB) = 1 billion Gigabytes (GB)
– 1 Zettabyte (ZB) = 1 trillion Gigabytes (GB)
– 1 Yottabyte (YB) = 1 billion in Gigabytes (GB)

How, already know by now how much is a Yottabytes? Which would probably be able to store all data that exist in this world. Hard drive of that size would also be making us hard to imagine how much it takes to reach that capacity if they use the hard drive capacity of 1 TB per piece. If calculated they would use about 1,000 billion hard drives. But from what we read, most likely the NSA uses a much larger hard drive since the NSA always use the most advanced technology that is usually not in the market like they could use a hard drive with a capacity of 25 -100 TB per piece.
