## Gbit to ZiB - Conversion Formula and Steps

Gigabit and Zebibyte are units of digital information used to measure storage capacity and data transfer rate. Gigabit is a decimal standard unit where as Zebibyte is binary. One Gigabit is equal to 1000^3 bits. One Zebibyte is equal to 1024^7 bytes. There are 9,444,732,965,739.290427392 Gigabits in one Zebibyte. - view the difference between both units Source Data UnitTarget Data Unit

Zebibyte (ZiB)
Equal to 1024^7 bytes
(Binary Unit)

The formula of converting the Gigabit to Zebibyte is represented as follows :

ZiB = Gbit x 10003 / (8x10247)

Note : Here we are converting the units between different standards. The source unit Gigabit is Decimal where as the target unit Zebibyte 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 8x1024^7 .

Now let us apply the above formula and, write down the steps to convert from Gigabit (Gbit) to Zebibyte (ZiB). This way, we can try to simplify and reduce to an easy to apply formula.

FORMULA

Zebibyte = Gigabit x 10003 / (8x10247)

STEP 1

Zebibyte = Gigabit x (1000x1000x1000) / (8x1024x1024x1024x1024x1024x1024x1024)

STEP 2

Zebibyte = Gigabit x 1000000000 / 9444732965739290427392

STEP 3

Zebibyte = Gigabit x 0.0000000000001058791184067875423835403125

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

1. = 10 x 10003 / (8x10247)
2. = 10 x (1000x1000x1000) / (8x1024x1024x1024x1024x1024x1024x1024)
3. = 10 x 1000000000 / 9444732965739290427392
4. = 10 x 0.0000000000001058791184067875423835403125
5. = 0.000000000001058791184067875423835403125
6. i.e. 10 Gbit is equal to 0.000000000001058791184067875423835403125 ZiB.

(Result rounded off to 40 decimal positions.)

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

#### 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 : Zebibyte

A Zebibyte (ZiB) is a unit of digital information that is equal to 1,180,591,620,717,411,303,424 bytes (or 9,444,732,965,739,290,427,392 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 "zettabyte" (ZB). 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.
