A ZettaByte is
equivalent to 1024 ExaBytes,
1,125,899,906,842,624 MegaBytes ,
1,180,591,620,717,411,303,424 Bytes or 9,444,732,965,739,290,427,392 Bits
the basic form of digital information storage, being
composed of '0's or '1's in any combination.
On a CD or DVD the Bits are represented by 'pits' and 'grounds' (the normal flat
metallic surface of the disc without any holes burnt or punched out of it) with
a transition between a pit and ground being a 1 and a continuous spell within
a pit or a ground being a 0.
On a tape or hard
disc the same principle to a CD applies, but the
pits and grooves are represented magnetically.
As a rough guide,
you can fit 25 GigaBytes on a single-layer Blu-ray
disc, 50 GigaBytes on a dual-layer Blu-ray disc,
4.7 GigaBytes of information on a full size (12cm)
DVD and 0.7 GigaBytes of information on a standard
