Western Digital’s “My Cloud “Online Storage Services to Start in India

Western Digital is better known as one of the leading manufacturers of hard disks and storage solutions. Extending storage to the clouds is a natural progression for the manufacturer of storage devices. The company already has My Cloud personal storage services operational in other parts of the world and brought it to India, starting it from 28th March 2014. This is a subscription based service. Western Digital charges Rs. 10999 for 2TB cloud storage, Rs. 12999 for 3TB and Rs. 14999 for 4TB.

According to Gartner, a research firm, a single household could have as much as 3.3 TB of digital content by 2016, a figure that is bound to keep on increasing. What makes content management for individuals is that it may be spread across desktops, mobile phones, tablets and laptops as well as the cloud. People buy and sell their devices and keeping all important data safe in one place assumes more importance. Western Digital My Cloud personal storage addresses this issue and offers an easy to use, affordable and secure solution, according to Khalid Wani, Sales Director of Western Digital for India, Middle East and Africa.  Individuals can now store all such data in their My Cloud account and access it whenever they need, from any device and from anywhere. My Cloud works on all versions of Windows, Apple’s OSx series as well as DLNA/UPnP enabled devices. Once they create an account users can use a USB 3 Hard Disk to their My Cloud drive.

It is easy for customers to use their My Cloud account. All they need to do is download a compatible app for Android of iOS devices. Western Digital makes My Cloud available through channel partners in India. Reliance Digital and Croma are currently the resellers of My Cloud services.
