Message Text: Western Digital expands its prosumer personal cloud solutions with My Cloud EX2, a two-bay network attached storage (NAS) system.

The system offers drive management options including RAID 0, RAID 1; JBOD and spanning modes, while its 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 configurable into other data protection modes. The system can be also used to centralize and back up computers and notebooks with WD SmartWare Pro software for PC users, and with the Apple Time Machine backup software for Mac users.

My Cloud EX2 comes in several capacity options including a diskless enclosure, as well as populated systems in 4TB, 6TB or 8TB capacities. Additionally, compatible USB 3.0 hard drives can be attached to the USB expansion ports on the My Cloud EX2 to expand the storage capacity. The populated My Cloud EX2 features WD Red hard drives, powered by NASware 2.0 technology for improved drive reliability and data protection in the event of a power loss or disruption.

The WD My Cloud mobile and desktop app provides anytime, anywhere access to the entire My Cloud product family.
