WD Introduces 2-Bay Prosumer Personal Cloud Storage


Wazzup Pilipinas!

More updates from the same company where I got my own personal cloud storage. I haven't actually used it yet as I am still preoccupied with lots of tasks and trying to squeeze my blogging tasks between the rest of my responsibilities but hopefully someday I will be able to finally try the hardware to store all my photos taken from the many media coverage I have been into.

WD, a Western Digital company and a world leader in connected storage solutions, today expanded its prosumer personal cloud solutions with My Cloud EX2, a high-performance two-bay network attached storage (NAS) system. The My Cloud EX2 and My Cloud EX4 products are designed from the ground up for creative professionals and prosumers that need to reliably save, share, back up, stream and manage large amounts of digital data.

WD is committed to providing a comprehensive portfolio of personal cloud solutions as the need for digital data storage continues to dramatically increase,” said Jim Welsh, executive vice president, WD Branded Products and worldwide sales. “With the My Cloud EX series of products, customers will be thrilled with the advanced features, high-performance and reliability that only WD can provide.”


Complete Data Control and Protection
Several data management and security features allow customers to select their preferred methods for managing and protecting their movies, photos, music and digital files. Drive management options include RAID 0, RAID 1; JBOD and spanning modes, while data protection options include RAID 1, USB, cloud or LAN/WAN backup.

The My Cloud EX2 comes preconfigured in RAID 1 mode to protect data right from the start and is easily configurable into other data protection modes. Customers can use their My Cloud EX2 to centralize and back up all of their computers and notebooks with WD SmartWare Pro software for PC users, and with the Apple Time Machine backup software for Mac users.


High Capacity and Ultimate Reliability
My Cloud EX2 provides several capacity options for customers to choose from, including a diskless enclosure allowing users to build their own NAS with the drives of their choice, as well as populated systems in 4TB, 6TB or 8TB capacities1. Additionally, customers can attach compatible USB 3.0 hard drives to the USB expansion ports on the My Cloud EX2 to instantly expand their storage capacity. The populated My Cloud EX2 features WD Red hard drives for ultimate reliability in the unique 24x7 NAS operating environment. WD Red drives are powered by NASware 2.0 technology, improving drive reliability and protecting customer data in the event of a power loss or disruption.
