WD announced today that they would be introducing a new entry into their My Cloud lineup in the form of the My Cloud EX4, a high-performance four-bay NAS solution.
“The reception for our recently introduced My Cloud personal cloud platform was extremely positive,” said Jim Welsh, executive vice president and general manager of WD’s branded products and consumer electronics groups. “Our single drive My Cloud system is the perfect solution for users that want an easy and private way to store all of their data at home and then share, save and manage it from anywhere in the world, on any device. Expanding our My Cloud platform to a four-bay system delivers the advanced features, customization capability and capacity that many of our customers are looking for.”

The system offers customers to easily install and swap hard drives, and also offers RAID 0, 1, 5, 10 or JBOD modes for flexible storage. The system also has built in DLNA capabilities to stream to compatible media devices, as well as remote access through installable apps.
