## PB to YB - Conversion Formula and Steps

Petabyte and Yottabyte are units of digital information used to measure storage capacity and data transfer rate. Both are decimal units. One Petabyte is equal to 1000^5 bytes. One Yottabyte is equal to 1000^8 bytes. There are 1,000,000,000 Petabytes in one Yottabyte. - view the difference between both units Source Data UnitTarget Data Unit

The formula of converting the Petabyte to Yottabyte is represented as follows :

YB = PB / 10003

Now let us apply the above formula and, write down the steps to convert from Petabyte (PB) to Yottabyte (YB). This way, we can try to simplify and reduce to an easy to apply formula.

FORMULA

Yottabyte = Petabyte / 10003

STEP 1

Yottabyte = Petabyte / (1000x1000x1000)

STEP 2

Yottabyte = Petabyte / 1000000000

STEP 3

Yottabyte = Petabyte x (1 / 1000000000)

STEP 4

Yottabyte = Petabyte x 0.000000001

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

1. = 10 / 10003
2. = 10 / (1000x1000x1000)
3. = 10 / 1000000000
4. = 10 x (1 / 1000000000)
5. = 10 x 0.000000001
6. = 0.00000001
7. i.e. 10 PB is equal to 0.00000001 YB.

(Result rounded off to 40 decimal positions.)

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

#### 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.

#### Definition : Yottabyte

A Yottabyte (YB) is a unit of measurement for digital information storage. It is equal to 1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 (one septillion) bytes. It is commonly used to measure the storage capacity of large data centers, computer hard drives, flash drives, and other digital storage devices.
