Centralized Storage for Anywhere Access

Keep your photos, videos, music and documents safe in a single place, and with MyCloud.com or the My Cloud app, you can access or share from anywhere.

Sync Your Content Across All of Your Computers

With WD Sync, you can automatically synchronize your media and files across your computers and your My Cloud device, so you can be confident your content is always up to date and accessible with all your devices.

Simplified File and Folder Sharing

Easily create a single place to store and share all your photos, videos and music with friends and family. Whether you're on a shoot, or editing at home, you can save your creations at full fidelity and share with your entire network without missing a beat.

Enhanced Data Protection

With WD SmartWare Pro, PC users can customize when and where their content is saved, while Mac users have full access to Apple Time Machine for personalized backup. You can even automatically back up your data to a separate My Cloud NAS device, or any supported cloud service like Amazon S3, ElephantDrive or Acronis. Combined with 256 AES volume encryption, you can securely store files across your entire network, regardless of OS.

Multiple RAID Options

My Cloud EX2 Ultra features a variety of RAID settings, so you can customize your system with the configuration that's best for you. Options include RAID 0 for enhanced performance, RAID 1 for mirrored data protection, as well as JBOD and spanning support for non-RAID configurations.

Smooth Media Streaming

With the 1.3 GHz dual-core processor, you'll have ultra-fast transfer rates for lag-free streaming. Combined with the Plex Media Server, your HD content will be organized and prepared for streaming to your PC, mobile device, game console, or other certified media player.

Simple to Install, Easy to Manage

Once installed, the My Cloud EX2 Ultra features an intuitive dashboard, so you can create user accounts, customize features, and monitor storage with ease.

Keep an Eye on Your Home, Wherever You're At

Compatible with thousands of cameras, with support for up to 12 connected cameras and two free camera licenses included, this NAS is the perfect surveillance solution to keep watch on what matters to you most.

Third-Party App Support

My Cloud EX2 Ultra supports a full suite of popular applications for a personalized experience. Use apps like Plex, Milestone Arcus Surveillance, Dropbox, WordPress, and more to customize your NAS to meet your specific needs.

Powered by My Cloud OS 3

WD's My Cloud OS 3 comes with a variety of tools and apps, so you'll have complete control of the media that matters most. Create a custom folder to share your favorite content with family and friends. Automatically synchronize your data between all your computers and make sure your content is always up to date. Easily transfer content between your NAS and a supported cloud service like Dropbox, OneDrive, or Google Drive.

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.
