Post WD Introduces My Cloud EX2 2-Bay High Performance NAS System


WD expanded its prosumer personal cloud solutions with My Cloud EX2, a high-performance two-bay network attached storage (NAS) system. The My Cloud EX2 and My Cloud EX4 products are designed from the ground up for creative professionals and prosumers that need to reliably save, share, back up, stream and manage large amounts of digital data.

WD is committed to providing a comprehensive portfolio of personal cloud solutions as the need for digital data storage continues to dramatically increase,” said Jim Welsh, executive vice president, WD Branded Products and worldwide sales. “With the My Cloud EX series of products, customers will be thrilled with the advanced features, high-performance, and reliability that only WD can provide.”

Complete Data Control and Protection

Several data management and security features allow customers to select their preferred methods for managing and protecting their movies, photos, music, and digital files. Drive management options include RAID 0, RAID 1, JBOD, and spanning modes, while data protection options include RAID 1, USB, cloud, or LAN/WAN backup. The My Cloud EX2 comes preconfigured in RAID 1 mode to protect data right from the start and is easily configurable into other data protection modes. Customers can use their My Cloud EX2 to centralize and back up all of their computers and notebooks with WD SmartWare Pro software for PC users, and with the Apple Time Machine backup software for Mac users.
