How cool would it be to send print jobs to your home or office printer regardless of whether you were in town or halfway around the world? The very first step to experiment with Cloud Printing is to download and install Google Chrome, the Web browser from the Google team that can almost, but not quite, double as your entire operating system experience. If your version of Google Chrome isn’t showing the cloud printing options, you have an earlier version of the browser and need to update it.
Those of you with 2-step want to set up an application-specific exception, which can be done in the Mange your 2-Step Verification page. At this point, let’s switch over to an Apple iPhone so you can see how Google Cloud Print works. The WD My Cloud comes equipped with a Gigabit Ethernet port, USB 3.0 for easy storage extension, and has an intuitive interface that is incredibly easy to set up.
The units are passively cooled, which makes the venting around the top, back and bottom a required feature so the drive inside can easily shed its heat. Overall the WD My Cloud is a very sleek, shiny, quiet and sturdy device, which is somewhat ironic since it will most likely live in the basement or wherever the Internet comes into a house. If a user wants to give someone access to their My Cloud all the user has to do is create a user account for that person on the NAS, generate an access code, and give that code to the person.
WD includes a feature called Safepoint in the My Cloud admin, which can create snapshots of the My Cloud to protect against drive failure, something that always worries us with single-drive configurations. The iPad app is essentially the same as the iPhone, the only difference being the far right pane for viewing a photo.
Performance on a device like this is somewhat difficult to measure in terms of practical performance in the real world because there are so many network factors at play, like Internet speeds for mobile devices that may be accessing the NAS. The WD My Cloud is a slick looking powerful personal cloud device (NAS) that anyone can use. The untethered society is becoming more of a reality each and every day, with the latest development being ubiquitous cloud printing from Google.
Google Cloud Print allows those of you on iOS devices to print directly from Google Docs Mobile or Mobile Gmail, over the air to any printer configured to use the service.
While today’s announcement from Google about the rollout is an exciting one, Mac users en-masse will have to wait. The good news is that if you are running Windows on a Mac via a virtual machine solution such as Parallels, the cloud printing solution will work if you follow the setup instructions listed here as if you were on a Windows machine. Afterwards I was able to print with no problems, from anywhere to my home printer, even over 3G.
The main problem with using this method on a Mac is that Parallels or whatever virtual machine software you use, has to stay running.


Hopefully AirPrint will evolve to the point where we can print anything, from anywhere over Wifi or 3G. My Google Chrome (latest version) does not have the Google Cloud Print option, apparently to connect your printer to Google Cloud Print, you will need to install the latest beta version of Google Chrome. Note: Make sure your product is set up with a wireless or Ethernet connection as described on the Start Here sheet for your product.
If you're creating a new account, fill out the Create An Epson Connect Account form, then click Finish. If you're registering a new product with an existing account, select I already have an account, fill out the Add a new printer form, then click Add. See our Activate Scan To Cloud and Remote Print instructions to activate the Scan to Cloud and Remote Print services. You are providing your consent to Epson Canada Limited ("Epson Canada"), doing business as Epson, so that we may send you promotional emails. Much of that complexity is because you need to have a printer hooked up to a server then install their software on that server and hook it up to your Google account. It also features free and easy-to-use applications so users can upload, access and share from anywhere using a PC, Mac, tablet or smartphone.
The enclosure has a shiny white plastic shell, with a matte branding inlay that wraps around from the front to right side. The drive is meant to be used vertically, with four rubber feet on the bottom to prevent slipping on a flat surface.
Simply connect its power source and network port to a router and you’ve completed the physical setup. It took us 3 minutes from plugging in to the My Cloud being running and accessible on the network.
They then download and run the My Cloud mobile app (available for Android and iOS) and enter the code. Via the USB port or other networked drive, users can very simply set up a Safepoint job that runs on a schedule. It automatically establishes its network and relay settings to make outside access simple and turns on popular features like iTunes and DLNA servers for streaming music and video content and Time Machine for Mac backups. This extra feature is very handy when you need to go through images quickly and clearly takes advantage of the additional viewing space on the tablet. Each platform has a WD My Cloud application that provides easy access to the files on the NAS. To measure top end performance to and from the WD My Cloud, we transferred large movie files to and from the unit to gauge read and write speeds from our 1GbE office network.


We found the My Cloud slowed under the heaviest loads but remained available, which is good. That’s because to connect your local printer with Google Cloud Print you will need a Windows machine running Google Chrome. To see the Start Here sheet, go to the Epson support main page, select your product, select Manuals, then click Start Here.
Even the inlay has a slick look on the side, along with the drive access indicator light on the front. The back of the unit has the USB port, power port, Ethernet port, and Kensington lock slot. All of the same features are here including the ability to email links to any of the files to friends and family.
In practical terms, the My Cloud could support 2-3 highly active users who are reading and writing to the device, which is likely more than what is required. Its performance is in line with expectations meaning the My Cloud will easily support the needs of today's modern family. To contact Epson Canada, you may write to 185 Renfrew Drive, Markham, Ontario, L3R 6G3 or call 1-800-463-7766.
User rights are also established in the admin, by default it creates a public folder, or share, for each user.
We connected a My Passport 1TB drive via the USB port and the My Cloud found it and started backing up with no issues. On the Mac the My Cloud shows up in Finder as a drive, just like the internal drive in a Mac, which makes interacting with the My Cloud in that way very simple. Of course we don't love that its single-bay, but at least they offer a Safepoint backup solution and larger units are en route. WD hits a lot of key points with the My Cloud with usability and tie ins to today's popular cloud service amongst the highlights. The My Cloud line is certainly primed to grab substantial market share in what is currently a growing yet fragmented slice of the NAS market.
