Western Digital Corp (WDC) Launches New ‘My Cloud’ Service

Posted Oct 2, 2013

Western Digital Corp (NASDAQ:WDC) has launched a new service called My Cloud.  My Cloud lets users organize and secure their digital content across multiple devices.  My Cloud users can share and stream files through their home network and access data stored on the cloud from anywhere.

“Everyone is inundated with thousands of digital files scattered across multiple computers and mobile devices, and controlling that chaos is a challenge,” stated Western Digital branded products and consumer electronics groups executive vice president and general manager Jim Welsh. “WD’s personal cloud is the easiest, most secure and most affordable way to customers to control that chaos, with access to all of their files anywhere, anytime.”

The Network Attached Storage (NAS) device comes with desktop and mobile apps that is used for controlling and sharing files.  The WD My Cloud app works on Windows, Mac, iOS, and Android.  The app lets you easily transfer files between Dropbox, Google Drive, and SkyDrive.

My Cloud will be available in three storage sizes: 2TB, 3TB, and 4TB.  A USB 3.0 hard drive is available for additional space.  The 2TB costs $150 and the 3TB costs $180.  These two are available now, but the 4TB will be available next month at a price of $250.
