Gbit to EiB - Conversion Formula and Steps

Gigabit and Exbibyte are units of digital information used to measure storage capacity and data transfer rate. Gigabit is a decimal standard unit where as Exbibyte is binary. One Gigabit is equal to 1000^3 bits. One Exbibyte is equal to 1024^6 bytes. There are 9,223,372,036.854775808 Gigabits in one Exbibyte. - view comparison between both units

Source Data UnitTarget Data Unit
Gigabit (Gbit)
Equal to 1000^3 bits
(Decimal Unit)
Exbibyte (EiB)
Equal to 1024^6 bytes
(Binary Unit)

Use the below formula to convert from Gigabit to Exbibyte.

EiB = Gbit x 10003 / (8x10246)

Note : Here we are converting the units between different standards. The source unit Gigabit 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 - Bit - multiply with 1000^3, and then convert to target unit by dividing with 8x1024^6 .

Follow below steps to convert from Gigabit (Gbit) to Exbibyte (EiB).

  1. STEP 1 → Exbibyte = Gigabit x 10003 / (8x10246)
  2. STEP 2 → Exbibyte = Gigabit x (1000x1000x1000) / (8x1024x1024x1024x1024x1024x1024)
  3. STEP 3 → Exbibyte = Gigabit x 1000000000 / 9223372036854775808
  4. STEP 4 → Exbibyte = Gigabit x 0.0000000001084202172485504434007452800869

Example : Detailed conversion steps from 10 Gbit to EiB, will look like below.

  1. = 10 x 10003 / (8x10246)
  2. = 10 x (1000x1000x1000) / (8x1024x1024x1024x1024x1024x1024)
  3. = 10 x 1000000000 / 9223372036854775808
  4. = 10 x 0.0000000001084202172485504434007452800869
  5. = 0.000000001084202172485504434007452800869
  6. i.e. 10 Gbit is equal to 0.000000001084202172485504434007452800869 EiB.

(Result rounded off to 40 decimal positions.)

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

Conversion Units

Definition : Gigabit

A Gigabit (Gb or Gbit) is a 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.

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.

Python Code for Gbit to EiB Conversion

You can use below code to convert any value in Gigabit to Exbibyte in Python.

gigabit = int(input("Enter Gigabit: "))
exbibyte = gigabit * (1000*1000*1000) / (8*1024*1024*1024*1024*1024*1024)
print("{} Gigabit = {} Exbibyte".format(gigabit,exbibyte))

The first line of code will prompt the user to enter the Gigabit as an input. The value of Exbibyte is calculated on the next line, and the code in third line will display the result.
