## GB to EiB - Conversion Formula and Steps

Gigabyte and Exbibyte are units of digital information used to measure storage capacity and data transfer rate. Gigabyte is a decimal standard unit where as Exbibyte is binary. One Gigabyte is equal to 1000^3 bytes. One Exbibyte is equal to 1024^6 bytes. There are 1,152,921,504.606846976 Gigabytes in one Exbibyte. - view the difference between both units Source Data UnitTarget Data Unit
Gigabyte (GB)
Equal to 1000^3 bytes
(Decimal Unit)
Exbibyte (EiB)
Equal to 1024^6 bytes
(Binary Unit)

The formula of converting the Gigabyte to Exbibyte is represented as follows :

EiB = GB x 10003 / 10246

Note : Here we are converting the units between different standards. The source unit Gigabyte 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 - Byte - multiply with 1000^3, and then convert to target unit by dividing with 1024^6 .

Now let us apply the above formula and, write down the steps to convert from Gigabyte (GB) to Exbibyte (EiB).

1. STEP 1 → Exbibyte = Gigabyte x 10003 / 10246
2. STEP 2 → Exbibyte = Gigabyte x (1000x1000x1000) / (1024x1024x1024x1024x1024x1024)
3. STEP 3 → Exbibyte = Gigabyte x 1000000000 / 1152921504606846976
4. STEP 4 → Exbibyte = Gigabyte x 0.0000000008673617379884035472059622406959

Example : If we apply the above steps, conversion from 10 GB to EiB, will be processed as below.

1. = 10 x 10003 / 10246
2. = 10 x (1000x1000x1000) / (1024x1024x1024x1024x1024x1024)
3. = 10 x 1000000000 / 1152921504606846976
4. = 10 x 0.0000000008673617379884035472059622406959
5. = 0.000000008673617379884035472059622406959
6. i.e. 10 GB is equal to 0.000000008673617379884035472059622406959 EiB.

(Result rounded off to 40 decimal positions.)

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

#### Definition : Gigabyte

A Gigabyte (GB) is a unit of digital information that is equal to 1,000,000,000 bytes (or 8,000,000,000 bits) and commonly used to measure the storage capacity of computer hard drives, flash drives, and other digital storage devices. It is also used to express data transfer speeds and in the context of data storage and memory, the binary-based unit of Gibibyte (GiB) 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.
