## KiBps to PBps - Conversion Formula and Steps

Kibibyte and Petabyte are units of digital information used to measure storage capacity and data transfer rate. Kibibyte is a binary standard unit where as Petabyte is decimal. One Kibibyte is equal to 1024 bytes. One Petabyte is equal to 1000^5 bytes. There are 976,562,500,000 Kibibytes in one Petabyte. - view the difference between both units Source Data UnitTarget Data Unit
Kibibyte (KiB)
Equal to 1024 bytes
(Binary Unit)
Petabyte (PB)
Equal to 1000^5 bytes
(Decimal Unit)

The formula of converting the Kibibytes Per Second to Petabytes Per Second is represented as follows :

PBps = KiBps x 1024 / 10005

Note : Here we are converting the units between different standards. The source unit Kibibyte 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, 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 Kibibytes Per Second (KiBps) to Petabytes Per Second (PBps). This way, we can try to simplify and reduce to an easy to apply formula.

FORMULA

Petabytes Per Second = Kibibytes Per Second x 1024 / 10005

STEP 1

Petabytes Per Second = Kibibytes Per Second x 1024 / (1000x1000x1000x1000x1000)

STEP 2

Petabytes Per Second = Kibibytes Per Second x 1024 / 1000000000000000

STEP 3

Petabytes Per Second = Kibibytes Per Second x 0.000000000001024

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

1. = 10 x 1024 / 10005
2. = 10 x 1024 / (1000x1000x1000x1000x1000)
3. = 10 x 1024 / 1000000000000000
4. = 10 x 0.000000000001024
5. = 0.00000000001024
6. i.e. 10 KiBps is equal to 0.00000000001024 PBps.

(Result rounded off to 40 decimal positions.)

You can use above formula and steps to convert Kibibytes Per Second to Petabytes Per Second using any of the programming language such as Java, Python or Powershell.

#### Definition : Kibibyte

A Kibibyte (KiB) is a unit of digital information that is equal to 1024 bytes (or 8,192 bits) and is defined by the International Electro technical Commission(IEC). The prefix "kibi" is derived from the binary number system and it is used to distinguish it from the decimal-based "kilobyte" (KB). 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.

### Python Code for KiBps to PBps Conversion

You can use below code to convert any value in Kibibytes Per Second to Petabytes Per Second in Python.

kibibytesPerSecond = int(input("Enter Kibibytes Per Second: "))
petabytesPerSecond = kibibytesPerSecond * 1024 / (1000*1000*1000*1000*1000)
print("{} Kibibytes Per Second = {} Petabytes Per Second".format(kibibytesPerSecond,petabytesPerSecond))

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