Kool Tools: WD's My Cloud


WD recently introduced its new My Cloud family of personal cloud solutions. They're compelling storage solutions.

They provide a complete solution for users to organize, centralize and secure the digital content from all of their computers and mobile devices and access those files from any device, from anywhere in the world. By simply connecting a My Cloud personal cloud drive to the Internet, consumers get the anywhere, any-device access they can get from the public cloud, without having to pay monthly fees or giving up control of their personal data.

Using the My Cloud drive, which is Mac and Windows compatible, users can share files, stream media and access content anywhere with no monthly fees and feel secure in the knowledge that their cloud resides in their own home under their exclusive control. Once the My Cloud drive is set up, customers can easily connect their computers and mobile devices with WD's free desktop and mobile apps.

With a Gigabit Ethernet connection and Dual-Core processor, transferring files is fast, allowing you to centralize all of the digital content scattered across various devices onto My Cloud. With direct file uploads from mobile devices, files and videos can be safely moved to My Cloud. This frees up space on your tablets and smartphones. Customers can also use their My Cloud to back up their computers and digital files.

Research firm Gartner estimates that the average household will own approximately 3.3TB of digital content by 2016. In line with this growth of digital content is the explosive growth of Internet-connected devices, with the current U.S. household owning 5.7 connected devices, according to The NPD Group.

A "personal cloud" is an ideal solution to simplify the complex issue of organizing digital files across various devices so that users can enjoy their digital videos, photos and music on all of their devices." You can get your personal cloud up and running quickly with WD's web-based user interface for web-guided setup.

My Cloud users can store and organize their families' photos, videos, music and important documents in one secure place on the home network. With the new My Cloud desktop app (available at the Apple App Store for iOS devices), navigating, controlling and sharing these files from anywhere in the world is intuitive.

Additionally, My Cloud serves as a home's digital entertainment hub, storing terabytes of movies and music that can then be streamed to any DLNA-certified multimedia device such as a WD TV Live media player, as well as smart TVs and gaming consoles.

My Cloud is available in 2TB, 3TB, and 4TB capacities, providing bountiful storage capacity with no monthly payment required. Customers can also attach a compatible USB 3.0 hard drive directly to the USB expansion port on the My Cloud drive and instantly expand their storage capacity.

The 2TB and 3TB My Cloud is currently available at select U.S. retailers and online at the wdstore.com. The 4TB My Cloud is expected to be available in November. The manufacturer's suggested retail price is US$149.99 for 2 TB, $179.99 for 3TB and $249.99 for 4TB. The My Cloud mobile app currently is available for download from the Apple App Store and Google Play. A two drive and four drive My Cloud configuration will be available in the future.
