What Comes After Terabyte?

Most people don’t spend time thinking aboutِ the smallest units ofِ data, bits andِ bytes.
But whenِ itِ comesِ to data transfer orِ storage, mostِ of usِ areِ concerned withِ theِ megabytes, gigabytes, orِ evenِ terabytes.
As data capacity increases, whatِ size hard drive shouldِ you beِ looking forِ next?

Data generally usesِ SI (International System ofِ Units) prefixes, basically theِ artist formerlyِ known asِ the metric system.
However, binary doesِ not operate onِ the sameِ scale asِ SI.
It isِ measured asِ powers ofِ two ratherِ than powers ofِ ten.
