After a successful high-fashion shoot, you're ecstatic to walk away with hundreds of Vogue- cover- worthy photos. But now comes the hard part. Your editors and clients need these photos ASAP. How will you make collaboration and sharing possible?

Will you stick the images on an external hard drive? That won't work -- you're overseas and can't meet up with your team to drop off the drive. How about a public cloud service? It'll take forever to upload the high-res photos, not to mention subscription costs would be through the roof.

In times like these, you need the WD My Cloud Expert Series NAS.

Why you need this:
  • Acres of storage: Designed for creative professionals and individuals with impressive media collections, the My Cloud Expert Series NAS provides an astounding 16TB of storage so you'll have more than enough room to stash a lifetime's worth of photos, videos, audio files, and more.
  • Mighty performance: Equipped with a powerful Marvell ARMADA 388 1.6GHz dual-core processor, this network attached storage drive delivers lightning-fast transfer upload speeds of 115 MB/s and download speeds of 107 MB/s to satisfy your high-performance needs.
  • Advanced connectivity: Three USB 3.0 ports ensure blazing-fast file transfers so you can quickly back up massive amounts of data.
  • Centralize your content: Effortlessly centralize and back up valuable files from all PC and Mac computers on your network.
  • Access files from anywhere: Download the My Cloud app and securely access content from anywhere with your laptop, tablet, or smartphone.
  • Smooth streaming: Thanks to the integrated Twonky DLNA-certified media server, the My Cloud Expert Series NAS lets you seamlessly stream content to media players, Smart TVs, gaming consoles, and other DLNA-enabled devices. You can even use Plex, a third-party media server app, to stream content to all of your displays.
  • Superior data protection: Multiple RAID configurations and AES 256-bit volume encryption provide reliable protection and security for your files. You can also use local, remote, or cloud backup to protect the computers on your network.
  • Sweat-free installation: The storage drive comes preconfigured to make setup a breeze. A user-friendly dashboard takes you through the process of setting up users and shares, customizing system features, and monitoring storage. Drive installation and hot swapping drives are also a cinch with the tool-less and tray-less 4-hard-drive-bay design.
  • WD Red NAS hard drives: Enjoy enhanced reliability and system performance with the built-in WD Red NAS hard drives. Innovative NASware technology offers vibration compensation and better power usage, while protecting your files when a power loss or disruption occurs.
  • Monitor your home: Milestone ARCUS Surveillance software transforms the My Cloud Expert Series NAS into a powerful surveillance system. It supports up to 12 cameras and comes with 2 free camera licenses so you can keep an eye on the places that matter most.
  • Optimized network performance: Dual Gigabit Ethernet ports for link aggregation delivers speedy network performance and provides for network redundancy if one of your network connections fail.
  • Backup power: Dual power ports let you add an extra external power supply. If your first power supply fails, the second one will kick in so you can enjoy undisturbed access to your content at all times.
  • Automatically copy files from a USB device: Plug your USB device in the drive and push the copy button located on the front to automatically copy all your files from the external USB to the My Cloud Expert Series NAS.
  • Energy efficient: Drive sleep mode, LCD and LED on/off, and power scheduling capabilities help reduce power consumption.
