Advanced Features
 
Advanced Backup
 
My Cloud Expert Series provides comprehensive data protection options to secure your content from loss.
 
Backup that's right for you
 
Automatically backup all the computers on your network and get flexible restore points for file version recovery. PC users, WD SmartWare™ Pro offers options for how, when and where your files get backed up.

Mac users, utilize all the features of Apple Time Machine backup software to protect your media and files.
 
Back up to integrated cloud solutions
 
ElephantDrive
 
ElephantDrive is a premium cloud-based backup, sync and sharing solution platform. With simple, fast and reliable protection for all of your important files, ElephantDrive is the perfect solution for users at any level. ElephantDrive's software runs on all personal devices (laptops, desktops, smartphones, etc.) as well as natively on NAS devices, where it is the leading solution in the space.
Amazon S3
 
Amazon S3 Backup and Restore feature allows you to back up data directly to your Amazon S3 account. Amazon S3 gives you peace of mind when used as an offsite backup, should anything happen to the data stored on your My Cloud Expert Series NAS.
RAID 0 - Speed
 
RAID 0 mode provides disk striping across all drives in the RAID drive group. RAID 0 does not provide data redundancy but does provide the best performance of any RAID levels. RAID 0 breaks up data into smaller segments and stripes the data segments across each drive in the drive group.
 
RAID 1 - Data protection
 
Set the system to data protection mode (also known as mirrored mode or RAID 1) and the capacity is divided in half. Half of the capacity is used to store your data and half is used for a duplicate copy. If one drive goes down your data is protected because it's duplicated.
 
RAID 5 - Data protection and speed (available on 4-bay NAS)
 
In systems with three or more drives we recommend that you set the system to RAID 5. This gives you the best of both worlds: fast performance by striping data across all drives; data protection by dedicating a quarter of each drive to fault tolerance leaving three quarters of the system capacity available for data storage.
 
RAID 10 or RAID 1+0 - High reliability with high performance (available on 4-bay NAS)
 
RAID 10 delivers very high I/O rates by striping RAID 1 (mirrored) segments. This RAID mode is good for business critical database management solutions that require maximum performance and high fault tolerance. A system set to RAID 10 yields half the total capacity of all the drives in the array.
 
JBOD & spanning
 
JBOD is the use of one or more drives not in a RAID configuration but managed as separate logical volumes. Spanning is the combination of drives in a linear fashion to create one large logical volume. The advantage of using this mode is that you can add more drive without having to reformat the system.
 
 
Professional-grade Features
 
User management/group management
 
With My Cloud Expert Series, it is easy to grant users access to the NAS, create groups and give access to those groups, and manage the amount of storage users/groups have access to.
 
Microsoft Active Directory support
 
Add My Cloud Expert Series to your Active Directory (AD) server for simplified and centralized management, as well as easy access for colleagues with one set of domain accounts. Everyone can use a single account to access various services with ease.
 
Distributed File System (DFS)
 
Connect My Cloud Expert Series NAS to a Microsoft Windows server to organize many distributed SMB file shares into a DFS for improved data availability in the event of failure or heavy workloads.
 
 
Volume virtualization using iSCSI targets
 
Manage storage over long distances and transfer data over LANs, WANs or the Internet by creating a Storage Area Network (SAN). My Cloud Expert Series NAS allow you to create and manage iSCSI targets, similar to a local hard drive, that is accessed over a network rather than locally. The iSCSI target is protected by the underlying RAID structure of the My Cloud Expert Series NAS.

Jumbo frame support
 
My Cloud Expert Series support jumbo frames up to 9000 bytes. These large IP frames are used to increase performance over supported networks. Increases in data transfer speeds only occur if every device on your network supports jumbo frames.
 
Link aggregation and failover support
 
Combine multiple network connections to increase data transfer past a single connection and provide redundancy in the event of a failed connection. This is also known as bonding, and refers to the use of two LAN NICs present in your NAS and two cables connected to your router simultaneously, improving reliability.

iPv6 ready
 
My Cloud Expert Series support iPv6, keeping your NAS up-to-date with the latest Internet Protocol.
 
 
UPS support (USB and network)
 
USB UPS: A supported UPS device that is connected to a My Cloud Expert Series NAS via USB cable can detect a power loss and gracefully shut down power.
 
Network UPS: Network UPS devices can be used when there is a single UPS device and multiple My Cloud Business Series units. One My Cloud Expert Series NAS can act as a "Network UPS server" and connect to the UPS device via USB or network (depending on the device). The network UPS server obtains UPS information and relays it to the other "client" Expert Series NAS.
 
Real-time resource monitors
 
Provide up-to-date information on My Cloud Expert Series resources, including CPU percentage, network utilization and RAM usage.
 
Virtual volumes
 
Virtual volumes simplify scalability by allowing you to map iSCSI targets on other network storage devices and present them as shares on your My Cloud Expert Series device.
 
SNMP
 
Simple Network Management Protocol, a protocol for managing devices on a network, allows My Cloud Expert Series NAS to be used in a managed environment. IT administrators who need to monitor multiple network devices, including My Cloud Expert Series via SNMP should download the document available here.
 
Disk spin-down
 
Set disk spin-down after as little as 10 minutes, saving runtime energy.
 
Wake-on-LAN
 
Use WD Quick View to wake My Cloud Expert Series NAS without having to physically push a button.
Automatic power recovery
