Source Data Unit Target Data Unit
Equal to 1000^5 bytes
(Decimal Unit)
Equal to 1024^3 bytes
(Binary Unit)

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

diamond CONVERSION FORMULA GiB = PB x 10005 ÷ 10243

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

FORMULA

Gibibytes = Petabytes x 10005 ÷ 10243

STEP 1

Gibibytes = Petabytes x (1000x1000x1000x1000x1000) ÷ (1024x1024x1024)

STEP 2

Gibibytes = Petabytes x 1000000000000000 ÷ 1073741824

STEP 3

Gibibytes = Petabytes x 931322.574615478515625

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

1. = 1 x 10005 ÷ 10243
2. = 1 x (1000x1000x1000x1000x1000) ÷ (1024x1024x1024)
3. = 1 x 1000000000000000 ÷ 1073741824
4. = 1 x 931322.574615478515625
5. = 931,322.574615478515625
6. i.e. 1 PB is equal to 931,322.574615478515625 GiB.

Note : Result rounded off to 40 decimal positions.

You can employ the formula and steps mentioned above to convert Petabytes to Gibibytes 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.

#### What is Gibibyte ?

A Gibibyte (GiB) is a binary unit of digital information that is equal to 1,073,741,824 bytes (or 8,589,934,592 bits) and is defined by the International Electro technical Commission(IEC). The prefix 'gibi' is derived from the binary number system and it is used to distinguish it from the decimal-based 'gigabyte' (GB). 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.
