The WD My Cloud

The WD My Cloud is essentially a storage device that sits at home and connects to your home network; however the cool thing about this product is that you can access it from anywhere where there is a secure internet connection – from a PC, smartphone or tablet! Basically you’re getting all the benefits of cloud storage while holding on to the security of knowing where your drive and information is located – safe at home while also avoiding the monthly fees that come with regular cloud based storage.

You can also create accounts for your friends and family and give them access to specific folders so it’s perfect for keeping in touch. Whatever the My Cloud owner snaps on their smartphone can automatically be uploaded to your My Cloud and accessed by anyone with an account set up. The WD My Cloud can also be used with other cloud based services such as Dropbox.
