What is a byte?

It is common for confusion to arise between bytes and bits. A byte represents eight unique bits of information. Each bit will be assigned a value of a 0 or a 1. This entire group of bits will then act as a packet of data. Examples here can be a letter, a number or a symbol such as a question mark. Bytes can be thought of as the "DNA" that is used to form larger strings of data and eventually, entire programs. It is important to keep in mind that unlike the diminutive bit, the byte is used to explain larger numbers.

What is a terabyte?

The terabyte is the current heavyweight of all data storage. The terabyte represents 1,000^4 bytes. In other words, it is the equivalent of one TRILLION bytes of information. This can also be expressed in more technical terms as 1,024^4 (1,099,511,627,776) bytes. Thanks to advances in storage and processing power, the terabyte is now commonly seen in external hard drives and other systems which provide massive amounts of memory space. As the world of computing continues to advance, it will be interesting to see how far these massive figures will rise!
