Category Data
Details In the field of data, a unit Gigabyte (GB) refers to a measure of digital information storage capacity. Gigabyte is derived from the International System of Units (SI) and denotes a quantity of 10^9 bytes or 1,000,000,000 bytes. A byte is a basic unit of digital information that typically consists of 8 bits, and each bit represents a binary digit (0 or 1).

Gigabytes are commonly used to measure the storage capacity of hardware devices like hard drives, solid-state drives, USB flash drives, and storage mediums such as CDs, DVDs, and Blu-rays. It also serves as a unit to measure data transfer capacity in networks and file sizes of digital files like images, videos, and software.

However, it's important to note that in some contexts related to data storage, the unit Gigabyte (GB) can also refer to 2^30 (or 1,073,741,824) bytes which is referred to as a Gibibyte (GiB) to adhere to the binary (base 2) multiple system.
