(Binary Unit)

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

diamond CONVERSION FORMULA Gibit = PB x (8x10005) ÷ 10243

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


Gibibits = Petabytes x (8x10005) ÷ 10243


Gibibits = Petabytes x (8x1000x1000x1000x1000x1000) ÷ (1024x1024x1024)


Gibibits = Petabytes x 8000000000000000 ÷ 1073741824


Gibibits = Petabytes x 7450580.596923828125


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

  1. = 1 x (8x10005) ÷ 10243
  2. = 1 x (8x1000x1000x1000x1000x1000) ÷ (1024x1024x1024)
  3. = 1 x 8000000000000000 ÷ 1073741824
  4. = 1 x 7450580.596923828125
  5. = 7,450,580.596923828125
  6. i.e. 1 PB is equal to 7,450,580.596923828125 Gibit.

Note : Result rounded off to 40 decimal positions.

You can employ the formula and steps mentioned above to convert Petabytes to Gibibits using any of the programming language such as Java, Python, or Powershell.

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.
