## GiB to PB - Conversion Formula and Steps

Gibibyte and Petabyte are units of digital information used to measure storage capacity and data transfer rate. Gibibyte is a binary standard unit where as Petabyte is decimal. One Gibibyte is equal to 1024^3 bytes. One Petabyte is equal to 1000^5 bytes. There are 931,322.574615478515625 Gibibytes in one Petabyte. - view the difference between both units Source Data UnitTarget Data Unit
Gibibyte (GiB)
Equal to 1024^3 bytes
(Binary Unit)
Petabyte (PB)
Equal to 1000^5 bytes
(Decimal Unit)

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

PB = GiB x 10243 / 10005

Note : Here we are converting the units between different standards. The source unit Gibibyte 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 1024^3, 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 Gibibyte (GiB) to Petabyte (PB). This way, we can try to simplify and reduce to an easy to apply formula.

FORMULA

Petabyte = Gibibyte x 10243 / 10005

STEP 1

Petabyte = Gibibyte x (1024x1024x1024) / (1000x1000x1000x1000x1000)

STEP 2

Petabyte = Gibibyte x 1073741824 / 1000000000000000

STEP 3

Petabyte = Gibibyte x 0.000001073741824

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

1. = 10 x 10243 / 10005
2. = 10 x (1024x1024x1024) / (1000x1000x1000x1000x1000)
3. = 10 x 1073741824 / 1000000000000000
4. = 10 x 0.000001073741824
5. = 0.00001073741824
6. i.e. 10 GiB is equal to 0.00001073741824 PB.

(Result rounded off to 40 decimal positions.)

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

#### Definition : Gibibyte

A Gibibyte (GiB) is a unit of digital information that is equal to 1,073,741,824 bytes (or 8,589,934,592 bits) and is defined by the International Electro technical Commission(IEC). The prefix "gibi" is derived from the binary number system and it is used to distinguish it from the decimal-based "gigabyte" (GB). 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.

#### 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.
