## ZB to GiB - Conversion Formula and Steps

Zettabyte and Gibibyte are units of digital information used to measure storage capacity and data transfer rate. Zettabyte is a decimal standard unit where as Gibibyte is binary. One Zettabyte is equal to 1000^7 bytes. One Gibibyte is equal to 1024^3 bytes. There are 0.000000000001073741824 Zettabytes in one Gibibyte. - view the difference between both units Source Data UnitTarget Data Unit
Zettabyte (ZB)
Equal to 1000^7 bytes
(Decimal Unit)
Gibibyte (GiB)
Equal to 1024^3 bytes
(Binary Unit)

The formula of converting the Zettabyte to Gibibyte is represented as follows :

GiB = ZB x 10007 / 10243

Note : Here we are converting the units between different standards. The source unit Zettabyte is Decimal where as the target unit Gibibyte is Binary. In such scenario, first we need to convert the source unit to the basic unit - Byte - multiply with 1000^7, and then convert to target unit by dividing with 1024^3 .

Now let us apply the above formula and, write down the steps to convert from Zettabyte (ZB) to Gibibyte (GiB). This way, we can try to simplify and reduce to an easy to apply formula.

FORMULA

Gibibyte = Zettabyte x 10007 / 10243

STEP 1

Gibibyte = Zettabyte x (1000x1000x1000x1000x1000x1000x1000) / (1024x1024x1024)

STEP 2

Gibibyte = Zettabyte x 1000000000000000000000 / 1073741824

STEP 3

Gibibyte = Zettabyte x 931322574615.478515625

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

1. = 10 x 10007 / 10243
2. = 10 x (1000x1000x1000x1000x1000x1000x1000) / (1024x1024x1024)
3. = 10 x 1000000000000000000000 / 1073741824
4. = 10 x 931322574615.478515625
5. = 9313225746154.78515625
6. i.e. 10 ZB is equal to 9,313,225,746,154.78515625 GiB.

(Result rounded off to 40 decimal positions.)

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

#### Definition : Zettabyte

A Zettabyte (ZB) is a unit of measurement for digital information storage. It is equal to 1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 (one sextillion) 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 : Gibibyte

A Gibibyte (GiB) is a 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.
