What is a Petabyte?

What is a petabyte?I was at a web conference recently and one of the speakers was giving information on how much data a Petabyte consist of (pronounced PET-uh-bite). A petabyte is a measurement of computer disk drive storage. Maybe you've heard of a megabyte, gigabyte, possibly a terabyte. Well, a petabyte is what comes next, it is a thousand terabytes.This is what the speaker compared a petabyte too... (his source was cited from http://mozy.com/blog/misc/how-much-is-a-petabyte)

1 Petabyte is equivalent to 20 million 4 drawer filing cabinets filled with text or 13.3 years of HD-TV video.

20 Petabytes is equivalent to all the hard drive space manufactured in 1995

50 Petabytes is equivalent to the entire written works of mankind from the beginning of recorded history until now in every language.

Can you imagine how much data this is and how much data the world currently possesses and stores.

Now check this out!

"This is the disciple who testifies to these things and who wrote them down. We know that his testimony is true. Jesus did many other things as well. If every one of them were written down, I suppose that even the whole world would not have room for the books that would be written" (John 21:24-25)

Not all the digital storage in the world combined, currently possesses enough room to record and store everything Jesus said, did or is! WHAT AN AMAZING TRUTH!!!
