Terabyte

A terabyte is made up of multiple bytes, which stores the digital information and denotes data size. A byte is a size, which is made up of 8 bits. A bit is a single unit of data. It can be '0' or '1'. TB is a unit symbol for the terabyte. And the short form of Terabyte is Tbyte.

In the word terabyte, Tera denotes the fourth power of 1000, and means 1012. A terabyte is approximate 1 trillion bytes. A petabyte just comes after the terabyte, i.e., is smaller than the petabytes and larger than the gigabytes.

Terabyte is equivalent to the following values:

  • 1012 bytes,
  • 1000 GB (gigabytes),
  • 1 Tebibyte,
  • 1,000,000,000,000 bytes

Mostly, terabytes are used for measuring the capacity of large storage devices. Around the year of 2007, the hard drives of consumers reached the storage capacity of 1 TB. It is a unit, which also measures the bandwidth or the data transferred in a certain amount of time.
