Definition: brontobyte

(BRONTOsaurus BYTE) One quadrillion terabytes. Although the term was coined years ago, and the collective capacity of all the storage drives in the world are nowhere near one brontobyte, we like to think in digital extremes in this industry. After the brontobyte comes "geopbyte" (a thousand brontobytes). Perhaps in the next millennium. See space/time.

A Brontobyte Hard Drive Anyone?
This image is inaccurate because it would take a football field of space to show the comparison between one terabyte and one brontobyte.
