A binary prefix is a unit prefix for multiples of units in data processing, data transmission, and digital information, notably the bit and the byte, to indicate multiplication by a power of 2.
The bit (a portmanteau of binary digit) is a basic unit of information used in computing and digital communications.
The byte is a unit of digital information that most commonly consists of eight bits, representing a binary number.
Computer data storage, often called storage or memory, is a technology consisting of computer components and recording media that are used to retain digital data.
A computer network, or data network, is a digital telecommunications network which allows nodes to share resources.
A CPU cache is a hardware cache used by the central processing unit (CPU) of a computer to reduce the average cost (time or energy) to access data from the main memory.
Data storage is the recording (storing) of information (data) in a storage medium.
In telecommunications, data-transfer rate is the average number of bits (bitrate), characters or symbols (baudrate), or data blocks per unit time passing through a communication link in a data-transmission system.
