Instantly increase your storage to meet your needs
If you are looking for your own personal cloud for you and your family to use, then look no further than this WD Mirror 8TB NAS drive (manufacturer’s code: WDBZVM0080JWT-EESN). Included are two 4TB WD red hard drives, giving you a total maximum storage space of 8TB. The WD red hard drives have been optimised for use in NAS drives and therefore run more efficiently within the harsh 24/7 environment, compared to more traditional drives. 8TB of storage space can be instantly increased by attaching a USB device into one of the USB 3.0 ports, giving you the ability to easily increase the maximum storage.

What kind of backups can I set up?
You can back up your Windows computer via the WD SmartWare Pro application or Mac computers via Apple Time Machine. The backups can be scheduled to happen automatically, covering a single folder or the complete computer. Alternatively, you can set backups to automatically occur when a change has been made in the folder/computer, speeding up the backup process.

To ensure files and backups are stored safely on the NAS drive and not lost during a rare disk failure, WD has configured this to be RAID 1 as a default. This disk management setting essentially uses one of the two hard drives to ‘mirror’ content that is stored on the other. This means you have the same content on the two drives and if one were to ever fail, you would have a backup available. This setting also limits the stock storage you will initially have to just 4TB.

Any attached USB devices can be used as a target for backups, as well as being used to increase the overall storage of your NAS drive. Likewise, the compatibility with Amazon S3 and ElephantDrive allows you to backup what is stored on the WD Mirror to the cloud. Owners of more than one My Cloud Mirror or a My Cloud EX4 can arrange for information on this NAS drive to be saved remotely. This multitude of backup options help to secure your data to make certain it doesn’t get lost when a drive failure does occur.

What apps are available for this NAS drive?
Free up space on your Apple iOS or Android smart device, with the My Cloud app, allowing you to save and backup your pictures and videos to your own personal cloud storage. Apps can be installed onto the WD Mirror, and 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. Third party apps can be installed as well, such as WordPress, Plex and aMule, so you can customise the Mirror to suit your needs.

What can I stream to with this NAS drive?
The DLNA and UPnP certification of the NAS drives means as long as other DLNA and UPnP devices are connected to the same network, media files can be streamed to the device. Smart TVs, media players and speakers are just some example of such devices. Installing Plex on the NAS drive also lets you stream to any smart device that can install the Plex app, opening up the range of different devices you can stream to.

What other features are available?
You can create users and give them access to the WD Mirror. Users or groups can then be assigned portions of the drive to either share or use themselves. This makes it perfect for small businesses to utilise the WD Mirror as a server for their employees. To avoid interruptions in the constant operation of this NAS drive, an UPS (Uninterruptible Power Supply) can be connected via USB or network, giving you temporary power if your power supply goes.

Quick install guide

Hi, does this device have a wake-on-LAN feature? So it can be in sleep mode but will wake automatically when needed without you having to go and switch it on first. Thanks

Asked by: Macro
The very nature of such a device implies it is an always on instant access device. A sleep function with wake on lan would be counterproductive to the operation of the deice. The unit does support pre programmed shutdown and the ability to wake up, you can find info about this on page 110 of the user guide we have provided on the listing under the downloads tab or by clicking here Summary below Power Schedule The Power Schedule allows you to schedule shutdowns for your WD My Cloud Mirror device. 1. To enable Power Schedule, click the toggle button . 2. Click Configure. 3. Use the slider bar to configure the start and stop times for your device. 4. Click to shut down the device for 24-hours. 5. Click Save. Note: You can use WD Quick View to wake up the system. For information and to download this app go to WD’s online Learning Center.

Is this compatible with *nix computers, how is the storage presented over the network (smb, ftp, http)

Asked by: Kevin
The My Cloud system supports the following protocols, CIFS/SMB, NFS, FTP, AFP and is designed to operate as a DLNA device. We cannot confirm this will work on a *nix system as we have only received compatibility data for Windows and Mac OS.
