  • WD My Cloud Business Series DL4100 4-Bay Diskless NAS

    Add USB 3.0 and Ethernet storage to your Windows or Mac system with the My Cloud Business Series DL4100 4-Bay Diskless NAS from WD. The My Cloud DL4100 is a high performance, centralized storage, and backup device that is well suited for small business environments. It has been designed for centralizing small business storage with virtual anytime and anywhere access.

    The My Cloud DL4100 is comes pre-configured for a user-friendly setup and system management. It also has an intuitive dashboard that helps guide you through the process of setting up users and shares, as well as customizing system features and monitoring storage. It also features a toolless and trayless drive bay design and drive installation, helping to simplify the hot swap process.

    This NAS is powered by a 1.7 GHz Intel Atom C2338 Dual-Core, which will allow you to run multiple functions simultaneously. The processor features a burst speed of 2.0 GHz and the built-in 2GB of DDR3 RAM, which can be upgraded to 6GB, will allow quick access to frequently-used files and programs. Network connectivity is achieved via the 2 x Gigabit Ethernet ports. Having 2 x Gigabit Ethernet ports not only provides network redundancy in the event that one port fails, but it also provides link aggregation to help enhance network performance. In addition to the dual Gigabit Ethernet ports, it also features dual power supplies, to help keep the NAS running in the event that one of the power supplies fails. This NAS also has 2 x USB 3.0 ports and 1 x USB 2.0 port.

    The My Cloud DL4100 features two SATA drive bays that can accommodate 3.5" drives and use NASware technology. If users opt to use WD Red drives with this NAS, NASware technology helps to further optimize WD Red drives for the NAS environment in respect to factors such as vibration compensation, optimized power usage, and data protection in the case of a power loss or disruption. However, please note that this NAS does not include any drives, leaving users the freedom to install compatible drives of their choice.

    This WD NAS also features AES 256-bit encryption that helps provide additional protection for your data, and RAID 0, 1, 5, 10, JBOD, and spanning can be used to configure various levels of data performance or redundancy. As this NAS features a built-in processor, this means that should a user wish to take advantage of the RAID functionality, the RAID controller is integrated into the NAS and thus RAID functionality will be controlled by the NAS and its hardware, instead of being controlled by software.

    The My Cloud DL4100 operates on 100-240 VAC at 50-60 Hz and includes an Ethernet cable, as well as a power supply and cable. It is compatible with Windows 8.1, 8, 7, and Vista, as well as Mac OS X Yosemite, Mavericks, Mountain Lion, and Lion. There's also the Milestone ARCUS app and two camera licenses to set up the My Cloud as an easy-to-manage surveillance solution. You can download the ARCUS app though My Cloud's dashboard and nearly all your cameras will be automatically detected.

    Plex Media Server
    Plex Media Server is used to host the content and plugins that are then streamed to Plex big screen apps (including Plex Home Theater) and Plex mobile apps, either on the same machine, the same local area network, or over the Internet. In addition to the platforms supported by the front end, the server is available for FreeBSD, Linux and nine different NAS devices. Plex Media Server can be configured to index content in any directory on the machine it is run on, as well as to automatically acquire content from such sources as Aperture, iPhoto, and iTunes. Content may be transcoded by the server before it is streamed, in order to reduce bandwidth requirements or for compatibility with the device being streamed to.

    Plex Media Server allows extensibility through the addition of plug-ins. Many such plug-ins are available through the built-in Plex Online digital distribution service. This service can be used directly within Plex Home Theater or Plex Media Center's GUI.

    Plex uses the metadata from several free open-source online libraries to automatically find all artwork, media descriptions, and theme music for the entire library.

    General Features

    Fill Your NAS with WD Red
    Built for 1 to 8-bay NAS systems, WD Red lets users store their data in one unit
    NASware 3.0 Technology
    Built into every WD Red hard drive, NASware 3.0's technology helps improves your system's storage performance by increasing compatibility, integration, upgradeability, and reliability
    Built for NAS Compatibility
    Desktop drives aren't purpose-built for NAS, but WD Red drives with NASware are. WD's technology helps takes the guesswork out of selecting a drive. WD Red is for small NAS systems and WD's algorithm balances performance and reliability in NAS and RAID environments
    Desktop Drives vs. WD Red
    Desktop hard drives are not designed for NAS environments. Do right by your NAS and choose a drive with an array of features to help preserve your data and maintain optimum performance. Take the following into consideration when choosing a hard drive for your NAS:
  • Compatibility: Without being tested for compatibility with your NAS system, improved performance is not guaranteed
  • Reliability: The always-on environment of a NAS or RAID is a hot one and desktop drives aren't typically tested in those conditions. WD Red is
  • Error Recovery Controls: WD Red NAS hard drives are specifically designed with RAID error recovery control to help reduce failures within the NAS system. Desktop drives are not typically designed for RAID environments where this can be an issue
  • Noise and Vibration Protection: Designed to operate solo, desktop drives offer little or no protection from the noise and vibration faced in a multi-drive system. WD Red drives are designed for multi-bay NAS systems
  • WD Red for Home
    Stream, backup, share, and organize your digital content at home with a NAS and WD Red drives designed to share content to the devices in your home. Red NASware helps increase your drives' compatibility with your devices, TV, stereo, and more
    WD Red for Small Business
    WD Red is a good hard drive choice for 1 to 8 bay systems. NASware 3.0 allows for integration with your existing network so WD Red can share and backup files at the speed of your business. For larger businesses with up to 16 bays, use WD Red Pro
    3D Active Balance Plus
    This helps ensure your data is protected from excessive vibration and noise in a NAS or RAID environment. This dual-plane balance control helps reduce the degradation of your drive over time
    Since your NAS system is always on, a reliable drive is essential. With an MTBF of up to 1 million hours, the WD Red drive with NASware 3.0 is designed for 24x7 environments
    Cooler Operations
    By reducing power consumption, the operating temperature of your NAS stays cooler. With a lower temperature in your system, you can create a more reliable solution for your NAS
