       Sounds like You meant to ask if 14Tbytes would be the point where we pass a PetaBIT.

    For the purpose of discussing computer RAM only, a terabyte equals

        1024×1024×1024×1024 bytes

    For any other purpose, a terabyte equals

        1000×1000×1000×1000 bytes

    1000×1000×1000×1000 is commonly called a trillion.

    Since no systems exist with petabyte amounts of RAM (as far as I know), that term's definition is limited to

        1000×1000×1000×1000×1000 bytes

    No.  It would be 14TB.

    A Petabyte is, using the decimal system, 1,000 terabytes (TB) or 1,000,000 gigabytes (GB).  (Using computer terminology that would be 1,024 terabytes (TB).)

    1 Pbyte = 1,000 Tbytes
