World’s business servers process 9.57 zettabyes a year


May 10, 2011 by Editor
The annual amount of business-related information processed by the world’s computer servers is 9.57 zettabytes (9.57×10^21 bytes) per year, scientists at the University of California, San Diego have estimated.
This is the digital equivalent of a 5.6-billion-mile-high stack of books from Earth to Neptune and back to Earth, repeated about 20 times a year. The report complements an earlier report on information consumption, which
estimated 3.6 zettabytes of information was consumed by American households in 2008.
