The exbibyte 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 EiB.
The prefix exbi (symbol Ei) represents multiplication by 260, therefore:
The exbibyte is approximately equal to 1.15 exabytes (EB), the corresponding unit in the decimal system of multiples, which is defined as 1018 bytes = 1000000000000000000bytes.
One exbibyte (1 EiB) is equal to eight exbibits (8 Eibit).
One thousand twenty-four exbibytes (1024 EiB) is equal to one zebibyte (1 ZiB).
