To Handle the Big Data Deluge, HP Plots a Giant Leap Forward
By Sridhar Pappu

“Few understand just how big “big data” has gotten. Many of us probably still think a terabyte is a lot of data. Today, our digital universe is about four zettabytes. To put that in perspective, while one terabyte can store roughly 100,000 minutes of music, one zettabyte can store just over two billion years of music. By the end of the decade, we’ll be starting to use a unit that few people have ever heard of: the brontobyte — a billion exabytes — or two quadrillion years of music.”
