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. I’ve seen a lot of debate about the performance of the Western Digital My Cloud NAS Server. To cut to the chase, you might want to check out this feisty little device to guarantee a fast wired connection, or consider a serious upgrade for your Wi-Fi.
While My Cloud might not be the best option for everyone, it’s really a beautiful device that performs well under the right circumstances.
Especially when it comes to transfer speed between your computer and the drive, there are a lot of factors to consider. There can be software problems too, in conjunction with other software and operating systems. If your wired connection is slow, it usually means that one or both of the devices (most likely on the router end), is using the 100Base-T (or older 10Base-T) ethernet standard. To enjoy the full speed capacity, you need a Gigabit Ethernet (1000Mbps-T) router or switch.

I wouldn’t recommend going any cheaper than that, if you want to have a good night sleep.
Hi, im using WD My Cloud connected to my Dlink 5-Port Gigabit Easy Desktop Switch (GO-SW-5G), my PC with 1gbps network card is also connected to Dlink Desktop Switch. Update: For sh1ts and gi1gles, I wired in a Win10 HP Pavilion AIO and open up both devices through explorer-samba (same network hardware). News Corp is a network of leading companies in the worlds of diversified media, news, education, and information services. 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.
And perhaps the biggest complaint and misunderstanding has been, that the transfer rate is low. Either by using the cheap but excellent ethernet cable method, or by making a bigger investment in top-of-the-line Wi-Fi technology. For example, just recently Mac OS X had released a software update that improves SMB (Samba) connections to the drive.

There has to be a router or switch in between, which enables the device to have a connection with the outside world (internet). The common problem is that your router is not fast enough.
If you are not planning on upgrading your Wi-Fi router (more about that later), a good option is to buy an inexpensive Ethernet Switch and you won’t have to worry about speed problems, ever again.
It’s a compact and powerful device, that you can rely on to distribute your traffic simultaneously across five different devices. But if you are going to buy a new one, you might as well get the later Cat6, which is an improved version and can go up to 10-Gigabit speeds. You really need to get a damn good router and a corresponding Wi-Fi Adapter if you plan on enjoying the luxury of a fast wireless connection. 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.
Compared to the traditional and clumsy USB connection, it has a much more sturdy connector, with a huge speed capacity.
With full backwards compatibility to any standard there is, you will automatically have the fastest possible speeds your machine can handle. Both software were not able to delete files on the backup hard disk when I tried to sync it.
