With our ever-growing library of photos, videos and files, storage is a bigger issue at present than ever. While you can always use the limited internal storage on your PC, or upload stuff to the cloud, a more reliable and easy solution is a NAS. Network-attached storage devices, or NAS boxes as we call them, have been available in India for quite some time now. Available in single drive, dual-drive and multi-drive configurations, these provide the best storage options if you have large amounts of data and insufficient local storage options. NAS boxes are necessary if you want your data to be available at all times, more so when you are traveling, and have limited storage resources. However, there has been limited overall acceptance of NAS storage solutions on everyday basis. To begin with, NAS devices are not the most affordable, generally priced around Rs. 45,000 for drive-less models. Keeping this in mind, WD announced the MyCloud EX2 Ultra earlier today, which will be available in drive-less and 4TB variants. The drive-less variant is priced at Rs. 17,499 and the 4TB variant costs Rs. 35,499, featuring WD’s Red drives, particularly optimised for usage in 24x7 NAS setups. Seeing that one 2TB Red Pro Drive costs about Rs. 8,000, the MyCloud EX2 Ultra NAS seems to be a great bargain for high storage needs. Here’s checking out the NAS drive in closer detail.
