Youtube does not work off a single server.

In their server network, I would assume they have around 10 - 20 exabytes worth of video.

Yes thats right, only that much space.
Youtube only stores publicisable video not pornographic ones so it only requires little space.

A single exabyte is huge, to have between 10 and 20 is a very large amount of space.

Hi Chris!

An exabyte is a billion gigabytes.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Exabyte

If you are interested in large storage, also see....
zettabyte http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zetabyte
yottabyte http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yottabyte


There are also references of larger sizes such as zebibyte and yobibyte, but these are very far away from being real as all the data on the internet is less than a zettabyte currently.
