Western Digital has made the cloud more personal with the launch of their My Cloud and My Cloud EX4 Personal Cloud solutions which gives users the opportunity to store and organize all their digital content from their own cloud and access it from any of their devices.
The WD My Cloud is technically a single-drive NAS (network attached storage) while the My Cloud EX4 is a four-bay NAS device. Equipped with Gigabit Ethernet, users need only attach the WD My Cloud or the My Cloud EX4 to their home router to begin using their personal cloud.
Users can access and manage their personal cloud storage device with the WD My Cloud desktop app on their PCs as well as the WD My Cloud mobile app which allows users to view photos, stream video and share, save and manage files from anywhere on their smartphones or tablets. The WD My Cloud mobile app integrates major public cloud services so that customers can easily transfer files from their Dropbox, OneDrive, and Google Drive accounts. The WD My Cloud mobile app is available on the Google Play Store and iTunes Store.
With the WD My Cloud and My Cloued EX4, users can also back up all of their computers and devices using Western Digital’s SmartWare Pro software for PC while Mac users can fully use Apple’s Time Machine backup software with both personal cloud devices. And with the WD My Cloud and the Cloud EX4’s available USB3.0 port/s, users can easily expand their cloud storage capacity.
Both the WD My Cloud and My Cloud EX4 are compatible with Windows 8, Windows 7, Windows Vista, Windows XP, OS X Mavericks, Mountain Lion, Lion, Snow Leopard, as well as DLNA/UPnP enabled devices.
