What is an Exabyte?

Was watching the movie Oceans 13 last week and heard the term "Exabyte" used to refer to the capacity of the supercomputer which monitored the casino. Soon this level of storage will be commonplace - so for those of you who were wondering, here are the basic definitions:

Kilobyte ~ 1 thousand bytes
Megabyte ~ 1 million bytes
Gigabyte ~ 1 billion bytes
Terabyte ~ 1 trillion bytes
Petabyte ~ 1 thousand trillion bytes
Exabyte ~ 1 quintillion bytes
Zetabyte ~ 1 thousand exabytes
Yottabyte ~ 1 million exabytes
