A Gigabit (Gb or Gbit) is a decimal unit of digital information that is equal to 1,000,000,000 bits and it is commonly used to express data transfer speeds, such as the speed of an internet connection and to measure the size of a file. In the context of data storage and memory, the binary-based unit of gibibit (Gibit) is used instead.
Where as a Zebibit (Zib or Zibit) is a binary unit of digital information that is equal to 1,180,591,620,717,411,303,424 bits and is defined by the International Electro technical Commission(IEC). The prefix 'zebi' is derived from the binary number system and it is used to distinguish it from the decimal-based 'zettabit' (Zb). It is widely used in the field of computing as it more accurately represents the amount of data storage and data transfer in computer systems.
