Your final Hour of Code word-of-the-day is: Yottabyte. The yottabyte is one of the largest units of measure currently used to describe the storage of digital information. A yottabyte is one septillion bytes. That's 10 to the 24th or a 1 with 24 zeros after it. How big is a yottabyte in real world terms? In 2010, it was estimated that storing a yottabyte using one-terabyte disk drives would require almost a billion city-block-size data-centers, covering an area the size of the states of Delaware and Rhode Island combined. By late 2016 memory density had increased to the point where a yottabyte could be stored on SD cards occupying roughly the size of three Empire State Buildings. One estimate created last year put the size of all the information stored on the Internet at 1.3 yottabytes. A yottabyte is a lotta bytes, but in the last two years progress has been made at encoding digital data in DNA to create the highest-density large-scale data storage scheme ever invented. One day soon it might be possible to store a yottabyte in a DNA storage unit the size of a refrigerator!
