## Petabyte (PB) to Exbibyte (EiB) Conversion - Formula & Steps

The PB to EiB Calculator Tool provides a convenient solution for effortlessly converting data units from Petabyte (PB) to Exbibyte (EiB). Let's delve into a thorough analysis of the formula and steps involved.

Outlined below is a comprehensive overview of the key attributes associated with both the source (Petabyte) and target (Exbibyte) data units.

Source Data Unit Target Data Unit
Equal to 1000^5 bytes
(Decimal Unit)
Equal to 1024^6 bytes
(Binary Unit)

The formula for converting the Petabyte (PB) to Exbibyte (EiB) can be expressed as follows:

diamond CONVERSION FORMULA EiB = PB x 10005 ÷ 10246

Now, let's apply the aforementioned formula and explore the manual conversion process from Petabyte (PB) to Exbibyte (EiB). To streamline the calculation further, we can simplify the formula for added convenience.

FORMULA

Exbibytes = Petabytes x 10005 ÷ 10246

STEP 1

Exbibytes = Petabytes x (1000x1000x1000x1000x1000) ÷ (1024x1024x1024x1024x1024x1024)

STEP 2

Exbibytes = Petabytes x 1000000000000000 ÷ 1152921504606846976

STEP 3

Exbibytes = Petabytes x 0.0008673617379884035472059622406959533691

By applying the previously mentioned formula and steps, the conversion from 1 Petabyte (PB) to Exbibyte (EiB) can be processed as outlined below.

1. = 1 x 10005 ÷ 10246
2. = 1 x (1000x1000x1000x1000x1000) ÷ (1024x1024x1024x1024x1024x1024)
3. = 1 x 1000000000000000 ÷ 1152921504606846976
4. = 1 x 0.0008673617379884035472059622406959533691
5. = 0.0008673617379884035472059622406959533691
6. i.e. 1 PB is equal to 0.0008673617379884035472059622406959533691 EiB.

Note : Result rounded off to 40 decimal positions.

### Unit Definitions

#### What is Petabyte ?

A Petabyte (PB) is a decimal 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.

#### What is Exbibyte ?

An Exbibyte (EiB) is a binary 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.
