## EiB to PB - Conversion Formula and Steps

Exbibyte and Petabyte are units of digital information used to measure storage capacity and data transfer rate. Exbibyte is a binary standard unit where as Petabyte is decimal. One Exbibyte is equal to 1024^6 bytes. One Petabyte is equal to 1000^5 bytes. There are 0.0008673617379884035472059622406959533691 Exbibytes in one Petabyte. - view the difference between both units Source Data UnitTarget Data Unit
Exbibyte (EiB)
Equal to 1024^6 bytes
(Binary Unit)
Petabyte (PB)
Equal to 1000^5 bytes
(Decimal Unit)

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

PB = EiB x 10246 / 10005

Note : Here we are converting the units between different standards. The source unit Exbibyte is Binary where as the target unit Petabyte is Decimal. In such scenario, first we need to convert the source unit to the basic unit - Byte - multiply with 1024^6, and then convert to target unit by dividing with 1000^5 .

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

FORMULA

Petabyte = Exbibyte x 10246 / 10005

STEP 1

Petabyte = Exbibyte x (1024x1024x1024x1024x1024x1024) / (1000x1000x1000x1000x1000)

STEP 2

Petabyte = Exbibyte x 1152921504606846976 / 1000000000000000

STEP 3

Petabyte = Exbibyte x 1152.921504606846976

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

1. = 10 x 10246 / 10005
2. = 10 x (1024x1024x1024x1024x1024x1024) / (1000x1000x1000x1000x1000)
3. = 10 x 1152921504606846976 / 1000000000000000
4. = 10 x 1152.921504606846976
5. = 11529.21504606846976
6. i.e. 10 EiB is equal to 11,529.21504606846976 PB.

(Result rounded off to 40 decimal positions.)

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

#### 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.

#### Definition : Petabyte

A Petabyte (PB) is a unit of digital information that is equal to 1,000,000,000,000,000 bytes (or 8,000,000,000,000,000 bits) and commonly used to measure the storage capacity of enterprise storage arrays and data centers. It is also used to express data transfer speeds and in the context of data storage and memory, the binary-based unit of Pebibyte (PiB) is used instead.
