## YB to PiB - Conversion Formula and Steps

Yottabyte and Pebibyte are units of digital information used to measure storage capacity and data transfer rate. Yottabyte is a decimal standard unit where as Pebibyte is binary. One Yottabyte is equal to 1000^8 bytes. One Pebibyte is equal to 1024^5 bytes. There are 0.000000001125899906842624 Yottabytes in one Pebibyte. - view the difference between both units Source Data UnitTarget Data Unit
Yottabyte (YB)
Equal to 1000^8 bytes
(Decimal Unit)
Pebibyte (PiB)
Equal to 1024^5 bytes
(Binary Unit)

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

PiB = YB x 10008 / 10245

Note : Here we are converting the units between different standards. The source unit Yottabyte is Decimal where as the target unit Pebibyte is Binary. In such scenario, first we need to convert the source unit to the basic unit - Byte - multiply with 1000^8, and then convert to target unit by dividing with 1024^5 .

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

FORMULA

Pebibyte = Yottabyte x 10008 / 10245

STEP 1

Pebibyte = Yottabyte x (1000x1000x1000x1000x1000x1000x1000x1000) / (1024x1024x1024x1024x1024)

STEP 2

Pebibyte = Yottabyte x 1000000000000000000000000 / 1125899906842624

STEP 3

Pebibyte = Yottabyte x 888178419.70012523233890533447265625

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

1. = 10 x 10008 / 10245
2. = 10 x (1000x1000x1000x1000x1000x1000x1000x1000) / (1024x1024x1024x1024x1024)
3. = 10 x 1000000000000000000000000 / 1125899906842624
4. = 10 x 888178419.70012523233890533447265625
5. = 8881784197.0012523233890533447265625
6. i.e. 10 YB is equal to 8,881,784,197.0012523233890533447265625 PiB.

(Result rounded off to 40 decimal positions.)

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

#### 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.

#### Definition : Pebibyte

A Pebibyte (PiB) is a unit of digital information that is equal to 1,125,899,906,842,624 bytes (or 9,007,199,254,740,992 bits) and is defined by the International Electro technical Commission(IEC). The prefix "pebi" is derived from the binary number system and it is used to distinguish it from the decimal-based "petabyte" (PB). 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.
