Selected category: bits and bytes.
Definition and details for yottabit (Yb):
Yottabit (Ybit) is a unit of information in computing and telecommunications equal to 1024 bits, defined by International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) in December 1998. Yottabit is confused with yobibit which is defined as 1024 zebibits. The difference between them is that yottabit is a power of 10 number and yobibit power of 2.
Definition and details for byte (B):
Byte is a unit of digital information in computing and telecommunications. It is an ordered collection of bits, in which each bit can be 1 or 0. Byte is the basic addressable element in many computer architectures because it is used to encode a character of text in a computer. The size of a byte is typically hardware dependent, but the modern standard is 8 bits, as this is a convenient power of 2.
