2 billion years worth of music...no problem. Shocked

1ZB is equal to around 1.1 trillion gigabytes, with XO Communications saying that 2016 could be 'the year of the zettabyte'

Seagate's Twitter account just blasted something both truly exciting, and incredibly terrifying: the first real tease of the zettabyte. Seagate posted XO Communications' infographic on the Zettabyte, or ZB.

To put things into perspective, 1ZB is around 1.1 trillion GB - yes, 1.1 trillion gigabytes. The infographic, above, says that according to Cisco's Visual Networking Index, the "world will cross the Zettabyte threshold of data transferred annually via the Internet by the end of 2016". To put things into an even scarier perspective, 1PB (Petabyte) is 1024TB (Terabyte), and 1EX (Exabyte) is 1024PB, so 1ZB is an insane 1024EB, which is just scary.

What is driving this Zettabyte amount of data? Internet video, with around 55% of Internet video expected to chew up 99% of all Internet traffic in 2016. The remaining 44% is split between web/data with 23%, and file sharing with 21%.

I knew I was on the right path tonight while looking for things to put me to sleep. Truly, though, that is absolutely mind boggling.

lol. yeah I guess we'll see if that really comes about. one year to go so we'll see if we hit the zettabyte mark.

on a completely unrelated note, it looks like the future is really here - Nike just filed PATENT PAPERS for power laces for a new shot: Back to the Future II' shoes are finally upon us.
