If you are a selfie or grofie addict that has thousands and thousands of photos, your first problem is, where do I store all of them?
Now once you find storage, there's another problem: Is it private? Is it safe?
And once you find solution to your storage concern comes another problem: Are the files going to be accessible?
Jason Segel may be right when he said, “No one understands The Cloud,” in the movie Sex Tape.
Aside from the subscription cost it entails, it doesn’t completely eliminate your storage woes.
A new product in the market called WD My Cloud promises to be a “complete solution for users to organize, centralize and secure the digital content from all of their computers and mobile devices.”
How? Through its Network-Attached Storage (NAS) system.
- It is a file-level computer data storage connected to a computer network providing data access to a group of users.
- It is also a convenient method of sharing files among multiple gadgets. Compared to file servers, NAS provides faster data access, easier administration, and simple configuration.
Other product highlights:
- It’s a hard drive that connects to your home network, so you control the security and lets you create user accounts with passwords to allow family, friends, and colleagues to access specific folders, if you need to share information (or media) and do some collaborative work. You can also transfer files between the My Cloud and cloud-storage services, such as Dropbox.
- It is more efficient! Instead of having to ask someone from the office to email a specific file or photo that you need, it can be accessed any time.
- It has a 2TB capacity. If this isn’t enough, just 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.
- Besides PC and MAC, the WD My Cloud lets you directly upload files from your iOS and Android devices.
- There are mobile apps available that make the file sharing and collaborating simple and secure, allowing customers to easily email files, share files as a link, and print and open files with third party apps.
- Beyond just backing up your files services, My Cloud can likewise stream media to various entertainment systems in your home that also support DLNA or iTunes.
- And as a precaution, it has a “safepoints” feature—which lets you recover all your data as well as the backups of your client PCs and Macs.
- Lastly, it doesn’t have monthly fees!
