Hard drives compatible and future scalability
If you're looking for a Networked Attached Storage (NAS) drive that you can add your own hard drives to, then this My Cloud EX2 (manufacture's code: WDBVKW0000NCH-EESN) is a great option. The two bay design lets you add up hard drive of up to 6TB in each slot*, for a maximum storage capacity of 12TB. To instantly expand your storage even further, you can add an external USB drive into one of the USB3.0 ports. This provides you with potentially a vast amount of storage space, which can be expanded even further if needed.

What are the backup options I can use with this NAS drive?
Backing up computers couldn’t be easier with WD SmartWare Pro for Window computers and compatibility with Apple Time Machine for Apple Mac computers. You can schedule backups to happen on a regularly basis for your most important files or for your whole computer. You can also have the NAS to backup only when a folder or your computer has made a recent change, speeding up the backup process.

An added external USB device doesn’t just have to be used to expand the amount of storage you have, you can dedicate the connected USB device as a backup location too. Similarly, integration with Amazon S3 and ElephantDrive cloud services allows you to backup data stored on the My Cloud EX2 to the cloud. If you own another My Cloud EX2 or an EX4 you can also remotely backup your data to it, no matter where it is in the world. This gives you a number of backup options to choose from, which is essential for businesses and anyone who does not want to lose important data.

What apps can I use with this NAS drive?
For Apple iOS or Android devices, WD photos and My Cloud apps are available, providing you with access to the NAS drive from anywhere. You can greatly customise the My Cloud EX2 with a number of apps compatible, such as iTunes or Plex. Plex is an app that can be used to organise your media files, with the dedicated app being downloadable on a number of different devices such as Smart TVs, computers, tablets and more, you can stream your content to them. As a default, http downloader, FTP, P2P and web file viewer are already installed. These apps allow you to automate and schedule downloads/backups to happen through a web link, share files and view the content of the NAS via the dashboard.

Can I stream with this NAS drive?
Aside from using Plex to stream content to devices, the My Cloud EX2 uses TwonkyMedia as its DLNA media server. This lets you stream your music, photos and videos to DLNA compatible devices, such as media players, games consoles, speakers and more, which are connected to the same network as the My Cloud EX2. And with iTunes support you can stream your music collection too.

What are some of the other features?
Users can be created and then given access to the My Cloud EX2 and portions of the drive can be assigned to individuals or groups, this makes it perfect for small business which want to use the My Cloud EX2 as a server for their employees. An UPS (Uninterruptible Power Supply) can be connected to this NAS drive via USB or network, which provides you with a temporary power source for your server should the main power source ever go out.

Support for iSCSI gives you the ability to make a virtual storage location for your computer (your computer believes the drive created is a local hard drive). This allows you to manage storage over long distances and transfer data over a network rather than locally.
