How Americans Consume 3.6 Zettabytes A Day [Infographic] 1

Recently, I have found an infographic “US Data Consumption In One Day” created by Artist Rob Vargas who used data from a study by the University of California at San Diego. According to this study Americans consume 3.6 zettabytes a day, isn’t that too big? but that’s true.

If a zettabyte is beyond your comprehension, too, it’s essentially one billion trillion bytes: a 1 with 21 zeros at the end. To put that into perspective, one exabyte — which equals 1/1000 of a zettabyte or 1 billion gigabytes — is roughly equivalent to the capacity of 5.1 million computer hard drives, or all the hard drives in Minnesota – said bits.
