A Petabyte (PB) is a decimal 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.
Where as a Yobibyte (YiB) is a binary unit of digital information that is equal to 1,208,925,819,614,629,174,706,176 bytes (or 9,671,406,556,917,033,397,649,408 bits) and is defined by the International Electro technical Commission(IEC). The prefix 'yibi' is derived from the binary number system and it is used to distinguish it from the decimal-based 'yottabyte' (YB). 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.
