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).)
