Exabyte (EB)

Short for Exabyte, an EB or Ebyte is 1,152,921,504,606,846,976 (260) bytes or 1,000,000,000,000,000,000 (1018) bytes. The exabyte is a multiple of the unit byte for digital information. In the International System of Units (SI), the prefix exa indicates multiplication by the sixth power of 1000 (1018). Therefore, one exabyte is one quintillion bytes (short scale). The symbol for the exabyte is EB. 1 EB = 10006 bytes = 1018 bytes = 1000000000000000000 B = 1000 petabytes = 1 million terabytes = 1 billion gigabytes. A related unit, the exbibyte, using a binary prefix, is equal to 10246 (=260) bytes, about 15% larger. One thousand exabytes (1000 EB) is equal to one zettabyte (1 ZB).

Exabit (Eb)

An exabit or Eb is 1018 or 1,000,000,000,000,000,000 bits. The exabit is a multiple of the unit bit for digital information or computer storage. The prefix exa (symbol E) is defined in the International System of Units (SI) as a multiplier of 1018 (1 quintillion, short scale), and therefore 1 exabit = 1018 bits = 1000000000000000000 bits = 1000 petabits. The exabit has the unit symbol Ebit or Eb. The exabit is closely related to the exbibit, a unit multiple derived from the binary prefix exbi of the same order of magnitude, which is equal to 260 bits = 1152921504606846976 bits, or approximately 15% larger than the exabit.

Pebibyte (PiB)

A pebibyte, or PiB, is equal to 1,125,899,906,842,624 or 250 bytes. The pebibyte is a multiple of the unit byte for digital information. It is a member of the set of units with binary prefixes defined by the International Electrotechnical Commission(IEC). Its unit symbol is PiB. The prefix pebi (symbol Pi) represents multiplication by 10245, therefore: 1 pebibyte = 250 bytes = 1125899906842624 bytes = 1024 tebibytes The pebibyte is closely related to the petabyte (PB), its corresponding unit in the decimal set of multiples defined in the International System of Units (SI), and which represents 1015 bytes = 1000000000000000 bytes. It follows that one pebibyte (1 PiB) is approximately equal to 1.13 PB. One pebibyte (1 PiB)…

Pebibit (Pib)

A pebibit, or Pib, is 250 and is equal to 1,125,899,906,842,624 bits. The pebibit is a multiple of the bit, a unit of digital information storage, prefixed by the standards-based multiplier pebi (symbol Pi), a binary prefix meaning 250. The unit symbol of the pebibit is Pibit. 1 pebibit = 250 bits = 1125899906842624 bits = 1024 tebibits The pebibit is closely related to the petabit, the corresponding unit using the metric prefix peta, which is 1015 bits.

Petabyte (PB)

A petabyte, PByte, or PB, is equal to 1,000,000,000,000,000 (1015) bytes. The petabyte is a multiple of the unit byte for digital information. The prefix peta indicates the fifth power of 1000 and means 1015 in the International System of Units (SI), and therefore 1 petabyte is one quadrillion (short scale) bytes, or 1 billiard (long scale) bytes. The unit symbol for the petabyte is PB. 1 PB = 1000000000000000 B = 1015 bytes = 1000 terabytes. A related unit, the pebibyte (PiB), using a binary prefix, is equal to 10245 bytes, which is more than 12% greater (250 bytes = 1125899906842624 bytes). One thousand petabytes (1000 PB) is equal to one exabyte (1 EB).

Petabit (Pb)

A petabit, or Pb, is equal to 1015, or 1,000,000,000,000,000 bits. A petabit (Pb) is a unit of data measurement that is equal to one quadrillion bits of data (or 1015). Another way to represent this is that one petabit equals one million gigabits (Gb). The petabit is one of the largest types of practical measurements for data storage or data transfer rates (DTR). The petabit is a multiple of the unit bit for digital information or computer storage. The prefix peta (symbol P) is defined in the International System of Units (SI) as a multiplier of 1015 (1 quadrillion, short scale), and therefore 1 petabit…

Tebibyte (TiB)

A tebibyte, or TiB, is 240 and is equal to 1,099,511,627,776 bytes. The tebibyte is a multiple of the unit byte for digital information. It is a member of the set of units with binary prefixes defined by the International Electrotechnical Commission(IEC).Its unit symbol is TiB. The prefix tebi (symbol Ti) represents multiplication by 10244, therefore: 1 tebibyte = 240 bytes = 1099511627776 bytes = 1024 gibibytes The tebibyte is closely related to the terabyte (TB), which is defined as 1012 bytes = 1000000000000 bytes. It follows that one tebibyte (1 TiB) is approximately equal to 1.1 TB. In some contexts, the terabyte has been used as a synonym for tebibyte. (see Consumer confusion).…

Tebibit (Tib)

A tebibit, or Tib, is 240 and is equal to 1,099,511,627,776 bits. The tebibit is a multiple of the bit, a unit of information, prefixed by the standards-based multiplier tebi (symbol Ti), a binary prefix meaning 240. The unit symbol of the tebibit is Tibit. 1 tebibit = 240 bits = 1099511627776 bits = 1024 gibibits The tebibit is closely related to the terabit, the corresponding unit using the metric prefix tera, which is 1012 bits.

Terabyte (TB)

A terabyte or TB, is equal to 1,099,511,627,776 (240) bytes. However, the IEC defines a TB equal to 1,000,000,000,000 (1012) bytes. Therefore, a TB could be equal to either of these values. A terabyte (TB) is a measure of computer storage capacity that is 2 to the 40th power, or approximately a trillion bytes. A terabyte is more precisely defined as 1,024 gigabytes (GB). The prefix tera is derived from the Greek word for monster. 1 TB = 1000000000000 bytes = 1012 bytes = 1000 gigabytes. A related unit, the tebibyte (TiB), using a binary prefix, is equal to 10244…
