A tebibyte is a unit of data storage that equals 2 to the 40th power, or 1,099,511,627,776 bytes.

While a terabyte can be estimated as 10^12 or 1,000,000,000,000 bytes, a tebibyte is exactly 1,099,511,627,776 bytes. This is to avoid the ambiguity associated with the size of terabytes. A tebibyte is 1,024 gibibytes and precedes the pebibyte unit of measurement.

The tebibyte is closely related to the terabyte (TB), which is defined as 1012 bytes = 1000000000000bytes, but the terabyte has been used as a synonym for tebibyte in some contexts .
