Multiples of bytes  


 
Orders of magnitude of data 
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).^{[1]} Its unit symbol is PiB.
The prefix pebi (symbol Pi) represents multiplication by 1024^{5}, therefore:
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 10^{15} bytes = 1000000000000000bytes. It follows that one pebibyte (1 PiB) is approximately equal to 1.13 PB.
