Just check this Infographic to find out all the names I got over the years.

I was told that Yottabyte was named after ‘Yoda’, that little old guy with big ears from Star Wars. Well, I hope to live as long as he lived. You know one thing? I have no clue who gives me my names. As a matter of fact, I don’t even know how big I am now. I could be Brontobyte, or Gegobyte. If you know, can you please put in a comment below. I’ll be much obliged.

My life’s passion is to store information. I kept growing and growing as I stored more and more information. As you can see from the infographic above, I can store the entire information in the universe in my current form.

Another interesting tidbit is that I lived in many different houses over the years. Let me now tell you about the different houses I lived in over the years.

During my initial years, I lived in this ‘magnetic drum memory’ house which is humongous. I very much enjoyed that huge house.

Then I moved to this smaller house called ‘hard disk drive’. Boy, life was hard then as it was noisy and that house kept getting smaller and smaller.

I also moved around to other houses like ‘laser disk’, ‘floppy disk’, and ‘magnetic tape’ etc. But my current house, called ‘solid state drive’ is sooooo nice. It is small but very quiet. Even though I have grown to my current gigantic size, I can live in smaller houses. Isn’t that cool?

Anyway, thank you for reading my story. Hope you ‘liked’ it. Please ‘share’ my story and don’t forget to comment below even if you don’t know my current name.
