Get Personalized Cloud with WD’s New Cloud Offering

Western Digital

How about a virtualized connected hard drives with in-house cloud offering, Western Digital launches My Cloud OS 3, a platform that gives connected hard drives (including network-attached storage) some of the features you take for granted on dedicated online services. It’ll automatically sync not just between PCs, but from the camera rolls of your mobile devices. You’ll have web- and app-based access to your storage, as well.
The platform depends on having the right hardware and software, but you don’t have to wait long for that. WD has already introduced an updated version of its dual-drive My Cloud Mirror that has My Cloud OS 3’s perks, and the My Cloud Albums app for Android and iOS will help you share photos when it arrives in late September. On the other hand, WD’s arch-rival Seagate is shuttering its Wuala cloud service in the face of stiff competition from the likes of Dropbox and Google.
