WD Expands Cloud Computing Family with My Cloud and My Cloud EX4

To organize, centralize, and secure the digital content from all of their computers and mobile devices and access those files from any device, from anywhere in the world – that's what WD offers its users by introducing two new devices in the forms of WD My Cloud, and the more advanced WD My Cloud EX4.

“We believe that there’s no place like home for the cloud,” said Jim Welsh, executive vice president and general manager of WD's branded products and consumer electronics groups. “Everyone is inundated with thousands of digital files scattered across multiple computers and mobile devices, and controlling that chaos is a challenge.
