WD Gives Consumers a Cloud of Their Own

WD introduced its new My Cloud family of personal cloud solutions. WD's My Cloud is 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 drive to the Internet, consumers get the anywhere, any-device access they can get from the public cloud, without having to pay monthly fees.



Research firm Gartner estimates that the average household will own approximately 3.3 terabytes (TB) 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. Personal cloud storage is the new standard, allowing users to keep media and files at home on their own physical drive and then access them over the Internet with any PC or Mac computer or on tablets and smartphones.

As of today, WD offers three My Cloud models: WDBCTL0040HWT (4TB), WDBCTL0030HWT (3TB), and WDBCTL0020HWT (2TB). Each features a Dual-Core CPU, Gigabit Ethernet and USB 3.0 ports. The drives are formatted to NTFS for Windows 8, Windows 7, Windows Vista, Windows XP (SP3) operating systems; Mac OS X Mountain Lion, Lion and Snow Leopard operating systems; DLNA/UPnP devices for streaming.

The mobile apps to access My Cloud are available for iOS and Android devices. With them, you can view photos, stream videos, access files, email files, share files as a link, print and open files with third party apps. Additionally, the My Cloud mobile app integrates major public cloud services so that you can transfer files between Dropbox, SkyDrive, and Google Drive public cloud accounts.

The 2 TB and 3 TB My Cloud devices are currently available at select U.S. retailers and online. The 4 TB My Cloud is expected to be available in November. MSRP is $149.99 USD for 2 TB, $179.99 USD for 3 TB, and $249.99 USD for 4 TB. The My Cloud mobile app currently is available for download from the App Store and Google Play. A two-drive and four-drive My Cloud configuration will be available in the future.
