ZB to YiB - Conversion Formula and Steps

Zettabyte and Yobibyte are units of digital information used to measure storage capacity and data transfer rate. Zettabyte is a decimal standard unit where as Yobibyte is binary. One Zettabyte is equal to 1000^7 bytes. One Yobibyte is equal to 1024^8 bytes. There are 1,208.925819614629174706176 Zettabytes in one Yobibyte. - view the difference between both units

(Decimal Unit)
Yobibyte (YiB)
Equal to 1024^8 bytes
(Binary Unit)

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

YiB = ZB x 10007 / 10248

Note : Here we are converting the units between different standards. The source unit Zettabyte is Decimal where as the target unit Yobibyte 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 1024^8 .

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


Yobibyte = Zettabyte x 10007 / 10248


Yobibyte = Zettabyte x (1000x1000x1000x1000x1000x1000x1000) / (1024x1024x1024x1024x1024x1024x1024x1024)


Yobibyte = Zettabyte x 1000000000000000000000 / 1208925819614629174706176


Yobibyte = Zettabyte x 0.0008271806125530276748714086920699628535

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

  1. = 10 x 10007 / 10248
  2. = 10 x (1000x1000x1000x1000x1000x1000x1000) / (1024x1024x1024x1024x1024x1024x1024x1024)
  3. = 10 x 1000000000000000000000 / 1208925819614629174706176
  4. = 10 x 0.0008271806125530276748714086920699628535
  5. = 0.008271806125530276748714086920699628535
  6. i.e. 10 ZB is equal to 0.008271806125530276748714086920699628535 YiB.

(Result rounded off to 40 decimal positions.)

You can use above formula and steps to convert Zettabyte to Yobibyte 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.

Python Code for ZB to YiB Conversion

You can use below code to convert any value in Zettabyte to Yobibyte in Python.

zettabyte = int(input("Enter Zettabyte: "))
yobibyte = zettabyte * (1000*1000*1000*1000*1000*1000*1000) / (1024*1024*1024*1024*1024*1024*1024*1024)
print("{} Zettabyte = {} Yobibyte".format(zettabyte,yobibyte))

The first line of code will prompt the user to enter the Zettabyte as an input. The value of Yobibyte is calculated on the next line, and the code in third line will display the result.
