WD® has launched My Cloud – 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.
A world leader in storage solutions for the connected life, the Western Digital company, introduced its new WD My Cloud™ family of personal cloud solutions.
By simply connecting a WD My Cloud personal 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 or giving up control of their personal data.
Research firm Gartner estimates that the average household will own approximately 3.3 terabytes (TB) of digital content by 2016.
Personal cloud storage is the new standard, allowing users to keep media and files safe 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 through mobile apps. Using the WD My Cloud drive, users can share files, stream media and access content anywhere with no monthly fees and feel secure in the knowledge that their cloud resides in their own home under their exclusive control.
“Families are connecting, sharing, syncing, and backing-up numerous mobile devices and computers in their household, with the amount of digital data being created on these devices growing dramatically,” said Liz Conner, Senior Research Analyst, Storage Systems, IDC.
