Maintains a second copy of all user files for real-time data backup in mirrored mode
Digital storage offerings firm Western Digital has introduced My Book Live Duo, a personal cloud storage system that combines the benefits of shared storage and remote access with double-safe backup or increased capacity of a dual-drive system with RAID (Redundant Array of Independent Disks) technology.
My Book Live Duo is compatible with Mac and PC operating systems and it continuously maintains a second copy of all user files for real-time data backup in mirrored mode (RAID). Half of its capacity is used to store users’ data and half is used for a second copy.
In spanning mode, My Book Live Duo combines both drives into one large volume acting as one drive for maximum storage capacity, while its built-in 800 MHz CPU delivers the power and performance needed for today’s most demanding applications.
The My Book Live Duo is designed around the most recent advances in Ethernet chip technology, personal cloud and it delivers best-in-class read speeds faster than traditional USB 2.0 drives and with WD’s My Book Live personal cloud storage offering.
My Book Live Duo connects to the home network to create shared storage that users can access within the home or anywhere in the world through secure remote access.
In addition, the My Book Live Duo system’s built-in media server streams movies, photos and music to any DLNA-certified multimedia device such as a WD TV Live streaming media player, Blu-ray Disc player, PlayStation 3, as well as Xbox 360s and smart TVs.
My Book Live Duo is currently available in 4TB and 6TB capacities.
WD Connected Home Solutions group Marketing director Chris Bull said My Book Live Duo is really the ideal, all-in-one storage and entertainment offering for today’s ultra-connected consumer.
"The ability for consumers to safely backup all their digital content, as well as access and share content from anywhere in the world on their tablet, smartphone or any computer, truly provides a unique and rewarding experience for anyone who wants to enjoy, and needs to protect, valuable digital content," said Chris.
