Western Digital, a company that has long been known for its storage solutions – portable or otherwise, and has introduced their new My Cloud range of personal cloud solutions. Just what will the My Cloud from Western Digital be able to deliver? It is best described to be a complete solution for users to help them organize, centralize and secure the digital content from all of their computers and mobile devices, with the ability to access those files regardless of the device that you are using, from just about anywhere in the world. All you need to do is hook up a My Cloud personal cloud drive to the Internet, and you will be able to gain the anywhere, any-device access which you would enjoy from the public cloud. Not only that, there is also the added advantage of not having to fork out monthly fees or having to give up control of your personal data.
With personal cloud storage growing steadily to be the new standard, it would enable users to ensure that both media and files will remain safe and sound at home on your own physical drive, not to mention having the added advantage of being able to access such information via the Internet using any PC or Mac computer, or if you prefer, on tablets and smartphones through the use of mobile apps.
With the My Cloud drive, one is able to share files, stream media and access content from just about anywhere without the need for any monthly fees, not to mention having the peace of mind since you know that your personal cloud resides in your own home – and hence, how physically secure it is, depends on whether Fido is there to complement your home security system or not. Not only that, getting your personal cloud up and running takes just minutes thanks to WD’s rich web-based user interface.
My Cloud will arrive in 2 TB, 3 TB, and 4 TB capacities, and you also have the option of hooking up a compatible USB 3.0 hard drive directly to the USB expansion port on the My Cloud drive, letting you gain an instant increase in storage capacity. Prices range from $149.99 for the 2 TB model all the way to $249.99 for the 4 TB model.
