## YiB to PB - Conversion Formula and Steps

Yobibyte and Petabyte are units of digital information used to measure storage capacity and data transfer rate. Yobibyte is a binary standard unit where as Petabyte is decimal. One Yobibyte is equal to 1024^8 bytes. One Petabyte is equal to 1000^5 bytes. There are 0.0000000008271806125530276748714086920699 Yobibytes in one Petabyte. - view the difference between both units Source Data UnitTarget Data Unit
Yobibyte (YiB)
Equal to 1024^8 bytes
(Binary Unit)
Petabyte (PB)
Equal to 1000^5 bytes
(Decimal Unit)

Use the below formula to convert from Yobibyte to Petabyte.

PB = YiB x 10248 / 10005

Note : Here we are converting the units between different standards. The source unit Yobibyte 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 1024^8, and then convert to target unit by dividing with 1000^5 .

Follow below steps to convert from Yobibyte (YiB) to Petabyte (PB).

1. STEP 1 → Petabyte = Yobibyte x 10248 / 10005
2. STEP 2 → Petabyte = Yobibyte x (1024x1024x1024x1024x1024x1024x1024x1024) / (1000x1000x1000x1000x1000)
3. STEP 3 → Petabyte = Yobibyte x 1208925819614629174706176 / 1000000000000000
4. STEP 4 → Petabyte = Yobibyte x 1208925819.614629174706176

Example : Detailed conversion steps from 10 YiB to PB, will look like below.

1. = 10 x 10248 / 10005
2. = 10 x (1024x1024x1024x1024x1024x1024x1024x1024) / (1000x1000x1000x1000x1000)
3. = 10 x 1208925819614629174706176 / 1000000000000000
4. = 10 x 1208925819.614629174706176
5. = 12089258196.14629174706176
6. i.e. 10 YiB is equal to 12,089,258,196.14629174706176 PB.

(Result rounded off to 40 decimal positions.)

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

#### Definition : Yobibyte

A Yobibyte (YiB) is a unit of digital information that is equal to 1,208,925,819,614,629,174,706,176 bytes (or 9,671,406,556,917,033,397,649,408 bits) and is defined by the International Electro technical Commission(IEC). The prefix "yibi" is derived from the binary number system and it is used to distinguish it from the decimal-based "yottabyte" (YB). 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.

#### 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.
