A terabyte is one trillion bytes (1012 = 1,000,000,000,000 bytes) in current standard usage. 1 terabyte (TB) = 1,000 gigabytes (GB) = 1,000,000 megabytes (MB) (There is a similar unit, the terabinary byte, or "tebibyte", which is 240 or 10244 = 1,099,511,627,776 bytes. However, this unit is never actually used, as hard drives are the only things that can hold this much, and they are always measured in powers of 10.)

Pentabyte

Incompatible. Terabyte is a measure of data, hours a measure of time.

The number 6 trillion trillion can represent two different numbers, because there are two scales in use.The short scale is used in the US, while the long scale is still in use in some countries.The number 6 trillion trillion (short scale) is 6 x 1024, or 6 septillion, with 24 zeros.The long scale assigns number names by millions, not thousands, so 6 trillion trillionis 6 million, million, million; million, million, million or 6 x 1036 with 36 zeros.

One trillion and one, One trillion and two, One trillion and three, One trillion and four, One trillion and five, One trillion and six, One trillion and seven, One trillion and eight, One trillion and nine, One trillion and ten, One trillion and eleven.

I believe you mean terabyte, and it is a measure of data equal to about 1 trillion bytes or 1,000 gigabytes.

Tb could mean terabit because TB (upper case B) means terabyte. Tera could mean one trillion (1,000,000,000,000) or (when referring to RAM) two to the power of forty (1,099,511,627,776). There are eight bits in a byte so there are about one trillion bits in a terabit (Tb) and eight trillion bits in a terabyte (TB).
