Western Digital just revealed their latest personal cloud solution for the layperson – the new WD My Cloud Home! It does not just support a family’s multitude of mobile devices, it’s designed to work like a home appliance – intuitively, and with minimal setup!
Introducing The WD My Cloud Home
With every family owning multiple mobile devices, there is an explosion of digital content creation with the need to consolidate and store all of that content. The demand for storage is expected to grow even more with the introduction of virtual reality content, 360-degree photos and videos, as well as 4K and even 8K video recording capability.
To address this issue, Western Digital is introducing the My Cloud Home – a new personal cloud storage solution for the layperson.
With the My Cloud Home solution, you can easily aggregate all of your photos, videos and files from every smartphone, computer, USB storage device, and even your cloud and social media accounts into one central place.
All of that is privately accessible using your smartphone, tablet or computer from anywhere with an Internet connection. But if you want, you can choose to share your content with family and friends, no matter where they are around the world!
The My Cloud Home is available as single bay, and dual-bay My Cloud Home Duo models, with storage capacities from 2 TB all the way to 16 GB. Because it has two drives, the My Cloud Home Duo models can be set to run at half capacity, for data protection using its RAID 1 mirroring feature.
