Here are some Storage Basics for beginners.

8 Bits (0’s and 1’s) for a Byte (B)
1,000 Bytes form a Kilo Byte (KB)
1,000,000 Bytes form a Mega Byte (MB)
1,000,000,000 Bytes form a Giga Byte (GB)
1,000,000,000,000 Bytes form a Tera Byte (TB)
1,000,000,000,000,000 Bytes form a Peta Byte (PB)
1,000,000,000,000,000,000 Bytes form a Exa Byte (XB)

Then comes Zetta Byte and Yotta Byte.

Normally, the accurate Kilo count is in chunks of 1,024 instead of 1000. We have left it simple and easy to learn in this case.
