Western Digital has launched a series of personal cloud storage solutions, allowing users to organize, centralize and secure digital content from computers and mobile devices.
The product called My Cloud is a personal drive that can be connected to the Internet, creating a sort of personal storage server — similar to a Dropbox service, except the user owns the"server".
"With thousands of files spread across several different computing devices, digital chaos is a challenge that consumers face on a daily basis," WD Sales Director Branded Products for India, Middle East & Africa, Khalid Wani said, in the Economic Times.
My Cloud is available at a price of Rs 10,999 (US$183) for 2TB, Rs 12,999 (US$216) for 3TB and Rs 14,999 (US$250) for 4TB. Storage capacity can also be increased by attaching a USB 3.0 hard drive to the drive's expansion port.
Besides typical file backups, other uses of the drive include movie and music streaming to multimedia devices, smart TVs and gaming consoles.
The My Cloud mobile app is available on the Apple App Store and Google Play. The product was launched in the U.S. last October, and rolled out in the UK the next month.
