## EB to EiB - Conversion Formula and Steps

Exabyte and Exbibyte are units of digital information used to measure storage capacity and data transfer rate. Exabyte is a decimal standard unit where as Exbibyte is binary. One Exabyte is equal to 1000^6 bytes. One Exbibyte is equal to 1024^6 bytes. There are 1.152921504606846976 Exabytes in one Exbibyte. - view the difference between both units Source Data UnitTarget Data Unit
Exabyte (EB)
Equal to 1000^6 bytes
(Decimal Unit)
Exbibyte (EiB)
Equal to 1024^6 bytes
(Binary Unit)

The formula of converting the Exabyte to Exbibyte is represented as follows :

EiB = EB x 10006 / 10246

Note : Here we are converting the units between different standards. The source unit Exabyte is Decimal where as the target unit Exbibyte is Binary. In such scenario, first we need to convert the source unit to the basic unit - Byte - multiply with 1000^6, and then convert to target unit by dividing with 1024^6 .

Now let us apply the above formula and, write down the steps to convert from Exabyte (EB) to Exbibyte (EiB). This way, we can try to simplify and reduce to an easy to apply formula.

FORMULA

Exbibyte = Exabyte x 10006 / 10246

STEP 1

Exbibyte = Exabyte x (1000x1000x1000x1000x1000x1000) / (1024x1024x1024x1024x1024x1024)

STEP 2

Exbibyte = Exabyte x 1000000000000000000 / 1152921504606846976

STEP 3

Exbibyte = Exabyte x 0.8673617379884035472059622406959533691406

Example : If we apply the above Formula and steps, conversion from 10 EB to EiB, will be processed as below.

1. = 10 x 10006 / 10246
2. = 10 x (1000x1000x1000x1000x1000x1000) / (1024x1024x1024x1024x1024x1024)
3. = 10 x 1000000000000000000 / 1152921504606846976
4. = 10 x 0.8673617379884035472059622406959533691406
5. = 8.673617379884035472059622406959533691406
6. i.e. 10 EB is equal to 8.673617379884035472059622406959533691406 EiB.

(Result rounded off to 40 decimal positions.)

You can use above formula and steps to convert Exabyte to Exbibyte using any of the programming language such as Java, Python or Powershell.

#### Definition : Exabyte

An Exabyte (EB) is a unit of measurement for digital information storage. It is equal to 1,000,000,000,000,000,000 (one quintillion) bytes, It is commonly used to measure the storage capacity of large data centers, computer hard drives, flash drives, and other digital storage devices.

#### Definition : Exbibyte

An Exbibyte (EiB) is a unit of digital information that is equal to 1,152,921,504,606,846,976 bytes (or 9,223,372,036,854,775,808 bits) and is defined by the International Electro technical Commission(IEC). The prefix "exbi" is derived from the binary number system and it is used to distinguish it from the decimal-based "exabyte" (EB). It is widely used in the field of computing as it more accurately represents the storage size of high end servers and data storage arrays.
