Enterprise organisations are constantly being asked to do more work with fewer people, as the size and complexity of infrastructure and applications continue to grow unabated.
While previous WD devices have had a nod to accessing your files on the move, with the My Cloud devices functionality moves front and centre with cross platform software to make the concept of a "personal cloud" more than marketing jabber. To get a full understanding of how this product works, we decided that we needed to give it an in-depth analysis, so we've been living with it for a month while at home and away. The casing, which has roughly the dimensions of a modest hardback book, is a glossy white with silver trim. Of course a unit like this tries to be as quiet and unassuming as possible, and the My Cloud is certainly that. On the rear are a power connector and Ethernet port, along with a USB 3.0 interface to add an extra external drive and a reset cavity so small that we could barely get a paper clip into it once we found it. 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. Grazie a WD My Cloud, il Cloud diventa personale e tutti i vostri dati saranno accessibili ovunque vi troviate. In questi ultimi anni, molto spesso, abbiamo parlato di cloud, anche se ancora oggi gli utenti hanno una sorta di diffidenza di fronte a questo nuovo modo di concepire la gestione dei dati ed il flusso di lavoro.
Western Digital, quindi, in un mondo in cui il cloud sta crescendo rapidamente ha deciso di proporre una nuova gamma di dispositivi denominata WD My Cloud. A nostro avviso, My Cloud rappresenta una vera e propria innovazione nel settore degli hard disk.
WD has introduced its new My Cloud family of personal cloud solutions, a complete solution for consumers and enthusiasts to organize, centralize, and secure all their data from all of their computers and mobile devices. WD customers will be able get their personal cloud up and running within minutes using the rich web-based user interface.
Additionally, WD customers can use the My Cloud to back up their entire computer with the WD SmartWare Pro software for the PC, which supplies users options on how, when, and where to back up files. Users can also store and organize all of their families’ photos, videos, music and important documents in one secure place on their home network using the new desktop app. While a one-bay home NAS is interesting, this is just the beginning for WD in the branded NAS space. Cloud storage was the buzz word in 2013 and it has carried forward that status into 2014, too.
So, how do you trust your personal data such as family pictures, confidential documents, videos and so much more, with third-party solution providers?
You can access your My Cloud device on your TV, media player, tablet, smartphone, and gaming console. You manage the My Cloud and other connected devices via the My Cloud Dashboard and use the WD My Cloud desktop app to manage your stored files and folders. Looks-wise, the My Cloud range of products from WD are very similar to the company’s My Book line of hard drives. Inside the box, the My Cloud comes with a small power adapter, a network cable, and a quick setup guide.
Once everything is up and running, you can then go ahead and connect your computers and mobile devices with WD’s free desktop and mobile apps. The WD’s My Cloud desktop interface has six tabs on top for Home, Users, Shares, Cloud Access, Safepoints, and Settings that will take the user to more customizations. WD has also released the WD My Cloud mobile app for Android and iOS that allows you to view photos, stream video, and access your files from anywhere on your smartphones or tablets. The My Cloud mobile app also has the ability to integrate major public cloud-services so that you can seamlessly transfer files between services such as Dropbox, SkyDrive, and Google Drive. If you run a Windows PC, you can use the bundled WD SmartWare Pro software in order to schedule backups of your data. Overall, the WD My Cloud is an effective and feature-rich solution if you want to setup your own personal cloud storage environment.

WD has launched My Cloud OS 3, which will be rolling out to the vendor’s range of cloud storage devices starting this month.


Alongside the launch of the latest version of My Cloud, My Cloud Device SDK and My Cloud API were also announced, through which developers will be able to build features and extensions for WD’s range of cloud storage solutions.
Availability of better infrastructure such as 4G and increased broadband speeds has made it compelling for our consumers to adopt personal cloud.
This guide is intended for companies, organisations, and IT professionals who are looking for a network and application monitoring tool that provides a holistic view of application performance, including performance monitoring, from the end user perspective.
The My Cloud range is a new product line, an offshoot of the long running My Book series built with an emphasis on remote access. To make it even more interesting, we avoided other music, video and photo streaming devices and all cloud storage for the duration of My Cloud testing. While predecessors have had light trails reminiscent of the front of Kit from Knight Rider, this small unassuming white box has just one tiny LED that's blue when all is working well.
It will blend in well with any system, though we would like to have had the option of a black version. Its primary functions are to protect the hard drive and look out at you from a shelf as if to say "look but don't touch", and it manages to achieve the right balance between fulfilling those functions and keeping its cost modest. 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. Una delle caratteristiche del cloud e quella di avere a portata di mano tutti i file che desiderate, di conseguenza Western Digital ha sviluppato My Cloud riprendendo questo concetto ed offrendo uno strumento che integra uniche feature.
Il mondo del cloud e stato, per molte aziende ed utenti, una completa rivoluzione che ha portato importanti novita ed un notevole abbattimento dei costi di gestione dei dati. L’obiettivo principale di WD, infatti, e quello di offrire agli utenti uno storage in grado di essere sempre connesso, ovunque ci si trovi nel mondo, e che permette agli utenti di poter organizzare, centralizzare e rendere piu sicuri i contenuti digitali presenti sui dispositivi mobili ed i propri computer.
Per quanto riguarda, invece, il My Cloud da 4TB sara disponibile a partire dal mese di novembre.
I vostri dati saranno sempre disponibili, ovunque vi troviate, e pronti per essere condivisi grazie ad un singolo link che puo essere inoltrato tramite e-mail. WD's software also features auto-detection for the drive, making it a quick and easy setup for novice users. This allows the navigating, controlling and sharing these files from anywhere in the world. During their lilve event, the company teased two drive and four drive My Cloud configurations that will be available later. We have seen a spurt in the number of cloud storage services that have come up in the last couple of years. WD has tried to address this problem and many more we face with storing personal data on the cloud, by launching the My Cloud Personal Cloud Storage System.
Well, it’s nothing but a NAS device with more user-centric features, an incredibly simple set up procedure, and managing it requires almost no expertise. If you need additional storage than what My Cloud offers, you can always connect an external hard drive via its USB 3.0 port to expand its capacity. Both pieces of software offer intuitive interfaces that have essentially zero learning curve. The casing around the hard drive is a simple white plastic case with silver edges and accents.
Setting up the My Cloud is a piece of cake – connect the WD My Cloud to your router and plug it into the wall. Here on, you can then start transferring files from your devices, safely onto to My Cloud, freeing up valuable space on your laptops, PCs, tablets and smartphones. With the mobile app as well, you can download files from the NAS server to the mobile device or back up files, such as photos and videos from the mobile device onto the NAS server. The mobile app also makes file sharing and collaborating simple and secure by allowing you to easily email files, share files as a link, and print and open files with third party apps.
So you see, WD seems to have almost taken care of including anything and everything you can ever think of, when it comes to cloud storage with the My Cloud.


Mac users meanwhile can have all the features of Time Machine to protect their data as well. The desktop client and the mobile apps make it a lot easier to access and download files, in addition to streaming content to DLNA-certified devices such as WD TV Live and Smart TVs.
They enjoy the peace of mind from backing up PCs, smart phones, and tablets to and centralizing personal content on their My Cloud systems. They tell us they are confident in the privacy, control and anywhere access we provide them with the My Cloud OS.
It's weighty enough that you would not like it to fall on you from a shelf, and sturdy enough that, despite it being plastic, you would more than likely come off worse than the device if it did. 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.
Tutti coloro che desiderano un cloud personale, pero, devono sostenere alcuni costi annuali che, molto spesso, sono elevati uniti a problemi riguardanti il concetto di proprieta del file.
Western Digital ha sviluppato un’applicazione per dispositivi iOS ed Android, denominata My Cloud, che permette agli utenti di vedere e caricare foto, effettuare streaming video ed accedere ai propri file. La flessibilita e le performance offerte da My Cloud aumentano la vostra produttivita e questa unita vi offrira strumenti unici, che fino ad oggi stavate cercando.
In addition, customers can attach a compatible USB 3.0 hard drive directly to the USB expansion port on the My Cloud drive to further expand their storage capacity without restriction. Once everything is up and running, users can easily connect their computers and mobile devices with WD's free desktop and mobile apps, and with direct file uploads from mobile devices, important files and videos can be safely moved to My Cloud, freeing up valuable space on users’ tablets and smartphones. My Cloud also serves as a home’s digital entertainment hub that can stream to any DLNA-certified multimedia device, such as the WD TV Live media player.
While some have stayed around and become more feature-centric, such as Dropbox, SkyDrive and so on, many others have died a natural death, either due to lack of funds to keep their servers up and running, or due to various other reasons. This slim design takes the shape of a book and operates upright next to any router due to the fact it needs to be hardwired into the router via Ethernet cable. The My Cloud goes through a self-test that is indicated by the flashing LED light on the front and is ready for use in less than 40 seconds. The setup next made sure that our network was online, and detected and displayed the drive’s serial number, thereby assigning an IP address. Another feature that works well is the Safepoints tab, which creates a restore point for the server by copying its entire contents onto an external hard drive connected via the USB 3.0 port or to another My Cloud unit.
A must-have if you are one of those who do not want their personal files scattered around the internet on umpteen cloud storage platforms.
Synology has a similar service called QuickConnect, so it is great to see WD implementing a similar solution. 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. Grazie al nuovo WD My Cloud potrete accedere, in qualsiasi luogo vi troviate, ai vostri dati grazie, sia all’interfaccia avanzata web-based che permette di avere impostazioni guidate ed immediate, sia attraverso le applicazioni installate sui vostri dispositivi. L’applicazione My Cloud, invece, e gia disponibile per il download su App Store e Google Play. The new WD My Cloud mobile app for Android and iOS allows users to view photos, stream video, and access their files from anywhere on their smartphones or tablets.
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.
Sul fronte delle specifiche tecniche, WD My Cloud offre un collegamento Gigabit Ethernet ed un processore Dual-Core che permettono di avere il massimo delle performance presenti in un hard disk di questa tipologia. Cio, quindi, permette di trasferire file in maniera biunivoca tra l’unita ed alcuni servizi cloud. Western Digital, infine, ha gia reso noto che le configurazioni da due e quattro hard disk My Cloud verranno rese disponibili in futuro. The mobile app also makes file sharing and collaborating simple and secure by allowing users to easily email files, share files as a link, and print and open files with third party apps.
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. My Cloud, inoltre, e DLNA compatibile, puo essere utilizzato in modalita Smart con le Smart TV di ultima generazione, supporta la crittografia a 128 bit AES ed ha incluso al suo interno il supporto iTunes Server. The My Cloud mobile app has the ability to integrate major public cloud-services so that customers can seamlessly transfer files between services like Dropbox, SkyDrive, and Google Drive.
