TECH REVIEW | WD My Cloud Personal Storage

Are you tired of overcrowded public clouds with growing monthly fees for increased storage, having to remove files and photos for more space, sharing the same hardware, storage and network devices with other public cloud members? Not to mention all the security issues! Well get ready to kiss those days goodbye thanks to the WD (Western Digital) My Cloud.

As a Blogger who takes lots of photos and has to work with a constant barrage of press releases, research notes and video interviews, I need lots of space and sometimes a backup drive just isn’t enough, especially if I want to access different backups at any time. A cloud service would be good for this, but I want my files to be safe and secure on the cloud. Many Public “Platforms as a service” solutions like Dropbox that store files are prone to security issues like hackers or even password guessers (see this article on cloud service models for more information on clouds and security). Fortunately for me, I found the solution.

Whether you work from home or multiple locations, are a fashion designer, a news blogger, a music creator, an editor, or a writer — you can keep all your work safe without deleting anything with the WD My Cloud. If you want the storage capabilities of Cloud storage without the inconveniences, the WD My Cloud is the answer to your prayers. The WD My Cloud keeps all your content in one safe place at home and accessible with your PC, Mac, smartphone or tablet from anywhere. You have an abundant amount of storage with no monthly fees, an amazingly fast performance and of course, peace of mind. You can feel at ease when you store, organize and back up your photos, videos, music and important documents all in one place. Plus you can use WD’s FREE apps (Mobile and Desktop) to upload, access and share from anywhere. The app also comes with options to secure your cloud such as fingerprint verification so that it’s harder for others to access your files. What more can you ask for?
