When used with byte multiples, the SI prefix may indicate a power of either 1000 or 1024, so the exact number may be either:

• 1 septillion, or 1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 bytes — 10008, or 1024, or
• 1,208,925,819,614,629,174,706,176 bytes — 10248, or 280.

The term "yobibyte", using a binary prefix, has been proposed as an unambiguous reference to the latter value. This article or section does not cite any references or sources. ... // In computing, binary prefixes can be used to quantify large numbers where powers of two are more useful than powers of ten (such as computer memory sizes). ...

 NationMaster - Encyclopedia: Yottabyte (1124 words) An SI prefix (also known as a metric prefix) is a name or associated symbol that precedes a unit of measure (or its symbol) to form a decimal multiple or submultiple. A yottabyte is a unit of measurement in computers of approximately one million million million million (American septillion) bytes. The yottabyte is the largest unit of measurement for computer data, consisting of 1,024 zettabytes.
 Yottabyte - Definition, explanation (263 words) A yottabyte (derived from the SI prefix yotta-) is a unit of information or computer storage equal to one septillion (one long scale quadrillion) bytes. That is, Avogadro's number is almost a "round number" in binary, and a (binary) yottabyte is approximately 2.01 × Avogadro's number of bytes. Humorously, it can be said that a (binary) yottabyte is about 2 moles of bytes.
