The 4TB Personal Cloud 2-Bay Home Media Storage NAS from Seagate allows users to create their very own cloud that is accessible outside of their home. With this home cloud that provides up to 4TB of storage, it is possible to organize all of your photos, videos, music, important documents, and more in one central location on your home network. It is also possible to back up every PC and Mac computer in your home to this device, as well as transfer files from and back up cloud services, such as Dropbox and Google Drive.
The two drive bays in this NAS help provide an additional level of data protection by simultaneously saving all files to both drives. This way, if one drive fails, you will still have access to all of your files. These backup processes may also be completed wirelessly, so long as you are connected to a Wi-Fi router.
The Personal Cloud 2-Bay can also be used to stream to Smart TV's and other connected devices. You will be able to access music, movies, and documents from computers, game consoles, Smart TV's, and other connected devices throughout your home. If you own a Roku Player, Samsung Smart TV or Blu-ray Disc player with Smart Hub (2012 model or later), you can use the Seagate Media app to browse content with your remote control. The Seagate Media app can also be used with smartphones or tablets to stream content to a Chromecast, LG Smart TV, or Roku Player when you want to share it on your TV's display.
Seagate's Personal Cloud 2-Bay will also allow you to take your cloud with you, virtually anywhere you go. Using a Seagate Access account or the Seagate Media app, you can manage and access digital content on the road. Seagate access allows any user registered to Personal Cloud 2-Bay to have access to private and public files on your drive back home.
The Seagate Media app offers a full screen view that allows for a quick and easy selection, as well as a visual experience that is available for Android and iOS devices, Windows 8/RT computers and tablets, and Amazon Kindle. After being downloaded, the Seagate Media app allows users to view their content by type, size, and compatibility, regardless if it is a PDF, Word doc, music, photo, or movie file. Photos and videos from a smartphone or tablet may also be offloaded or backed up using the Seagate Media app. Included with this Personal Cloud 2-Bay NAS is a power supply and an Ethernet cable.
