Thank you for visiting my blog. I am a Cofounder & Technical Advisor here at the BeyeNETWORK. Having covered the business intelligence and data warehousing industry for more than 15 years, I'm looking forward to a more interactive form of communication with all of you. Please share your comments and thoughts!



Nope its not a Seinfeld episode. I was sitting in a meeting this morning and someone used the word "yotta" to refer to data size. I have to admit its a first for me. I have lived in the world of Megabytes and gigabytes, and even terabytes. A few articles this past year have referred to the future data issues of the Petabyte and once or twice I've heard talk about Exabytes but did you know its been defined even higher?

Check this out straight from Wikipedia
